Truckee softball: Wolverines come up short at Dayton

The Wolverines lost a Northern 3A game 7-3 at Dayton on Wednesday.

While Truckee’s defense remained solid, its hitting was subpar for the second consecutive game. The Wolverines managed just five hits and three walks against the Dust Devils.

“We had absolutely no offensive output at all,” said Truckee head coach Geary Jones. “But it’s OK. We’re going to get on our field at Regional Park today and get ’em going. We’re not in panic mode. It’s still early.”

Truckee’s only hits came from Rachel Zissimos, who had two, and Miranda Baker, Katelyn Gadsby and Ashley McKechnie, who each had one.

“They hit a lot of balls off the end of the bat, so I think they were just anxious and out in front,” Jones said.

Stacy Brenes tossed the first 5 1/3 innings for the Wolverines, yielding six hits, seven runs and nine walks while striking out six.

The Wolverines are now 4-5 overall and 1-1 in league.

Truckee hosts a doubleheader with Dayton on Saturday. Field conditions permitting, the games are scheduled to be played at Truckee River Regional Park at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Jones is anticipating a more competitive Truckee team to show up on its home field.

“We’re evenly matched, there’s no question,” he said of his team and the Dust Devils. “And the girls know it. They’re looking forward to getting on our field with (Dayton) this weekend.”


Zissimos 2-3, Baker 1-2, Gadsby 1-1, McKechnie 1-4
