D’Hanis chalks up 4th straight 18-0 win

 

     “18” appears to be the magic number for the D’Hanis Cowgirls. The softball team won by a score of 18-0 for the fourth consecutive game, this time beating La Pryor in a non-district 21/2 inning home matchup on Thursday, April 1.

     After a day off on Tuesday, the Cowgirls (6-5-1) will return to the field with a 5 p.m. home game against Leakey on Friday, April 9.

On Monday, April 12, they’ll make the short trip to Hondo to take on the Owls in a non-district game at Martin Field. Game time is 7 p.m., preceded by a 5 p.m. JV contest.

     The Cowgirls piled up 11 runs in the first inning and added another seven in the second.

     Three Cowgirls homered in the win. Madi Rhodes and Natalie McFadin both connected for two-run homers in the first inning, and Peyton Burell had a two-run blast in the second.

     Otherwise, Rhodes and Reece Redden both had three hits, while Marissa Santos, McFadin, Mabry Herrmann, Koehler Ruiz and Burell all had two each.

     Santos pitched the three innings for D’Hanis, allowing two hits, fanning six, and facing just one batter over the minimum.
