Girls Varsity Softball · Grand Blanc Varsity Softball wins Districts!!!

It was an exciting two day event due to storms.  We were able to shutout Davison with Kendall Klochack on the mound and Olivia Bainbridge behind the plate 9-0.  The fourth inning our bats were on fire with singles by Brie Broderick, Annabelle Morningstar, and Klochack and an error on a ball put in play by Bainbridge.  Klochack surrendered zero runs on two hits in seven innings striking out 16 and walking one.  We had 12 hits this game by LaNya Bates, Broderick, and Rebecca Oetting all having multiple hits.  Bates went 3 for 4 at the plate leading in our hits.  Our defense had zero errors.

The championship game was Sunday against Lapeer.  Kendall Klochack and Olivia Bainbridge were our defensive wall again clinching the win 9-3.  We were first to score in the first inning when Klochack doubled on a 3-2 count, scoring one run.  GB’s big inning was driven by walks by Brie Broderick and Olivia Bainbridge with a deep hit in center and a double by Megan Martin.  Klochack allowed five hits, three runs, struck out 8, and walked zero.  Our ten hits were also brought by Martin, Rebecca Oetting, and LaNya Bates with multiple hits.   Katie Ragsdale was solid defensively coming up with several big plays.  Brie Broderick ended the game with a big seventh inning pop fly catch in right field.
