Softball gets fast start
For the first three innings of the softball season, the Washington Demons certainly looked like an offensive juggernaut.
In the bottom of the first inning on Wednesday night, the Demons put up six runs on Columbus, and were able to add a few more before the game was called, giving Washington the win 13-0 in a three-inning win.
“It was a nice first game for us,” softball head coach Angie Shrader said. “We hit the ball extremely well tonight, and besides Grace ending with a two-run home run, we had a lot of shots that went off the fence and had a chance. Our girls ran the bases extremely well.”
Senior Grace Redlinger went 2-for-3 in the game, hitting a home run and driving in three runners, while senior pitcher Ashley Rausch stuck out six batters while not allowing a hit or walk in the game.
The team will travel to take on Highland for its next game on Friday, with first pitch set for 7 p.m.
