Triple play boosts
Last week, the Lady Whippets split a pair of games early in the week against Kremlin-Hillsdale and Cherokee. While the bats were unable to get going in their Monday-night loss in Kremlin, the Okeene offense doubled up the Lady Chiefs at home the following night.
In their 13-1 loss to the Lady Broncs, Okeene was only able to muster a trio of walks. Hailey Swart was issued the free pass in the first inning, and Leah Ramey and Caitlin Outhier were hit by the pitch in back-to-back plate appearances, in which Ramey was able to eventually come around and score the Lady Whippets lone run.
However, on Tuesday that was not the case as Okeene reached base 26 times in the contest. The girls’ success has often stemmed from the top of their order getting on base, and that was against the case as leadoff hitter, Hannah Nease collected singles in each of her first three at-bats.
