By JAMIE KNAPP

Freshman Destini Oehlertz went 3-for-3 with a triple and drove in a run to help Laurens-Marathon beat Graettinger-Terril 8-4 in Laurens on Tuesday.

The Chargers trailed 1-0 after an inning but scored two runs in the second, one in the third, four in the fourth and one more in the fifth.

Graettinger-Terril scored one run in the sixth and two in the seventh, but the Chargers held off the threat.

Laurens-Marathon tallied nine hits, including the three from Oehlertz. Briley Sullivan and Brittany Hubbell each had two.

Sullivan pitched all seven inning, surrendering four runs, two of which were earned, on nine hits while walking one and striking out three.

 

Spirit Lake 11, Alta-Aurelia 3


Spirit Lake scored eight runs in the first three innings and Alta-Aurelia could never recover as the Indians defeated the Warriors on Tuesday at Spirit Lake.

Alta-Aurelia, which scored two runs in the fifth and one in the seventh, had seven hits.

D.J. Flores and Gracie Winterhof each had an RBI single. Micah Barnes, Jacee Ahnemann, Jenna Snyder, Tayler Rohwer and Bailey Duhn each added a single.

Rohwer took the loss. She allowed six hits and eight runs, only one of which was earned, walked two and struck out four.

“Our defense was not sharp and cost us this game,” Alta-Aurelia coach Dave Turnquist said. “We need to refocus and stay aggressive defensively.”

Camryn Mork pitched in her first game as an eighth grader and pitched well. We got a lot of players in and everybody did well. Now we need to strive to stay in the conference race.”
