Fillies ride past Tigresses

MORRISON — All Princeton coach Bob James could do was chalk this one up to a learning lesson after the Tigresses went down in defeat to the Morrison Fillies 16-2 in four and half innings Tuesday.

“We’ve got some kids injured and some medical stuff, so we’re thin and inexperienced,” James said. “We got more at-bats tonight, the more the better.”

Courtney Oeder drove in both of the Tigresses’ run with a single through the infield in the fourth inning.

Alisa Holmbeck had a double and Rachel Lawson, Devin Truesdon and Abby Jaques each hit safely.

Morrison (3-0), the 2011 class 2A State champion, brought out its big bats, belting three homers and cracking out 17 hits in just four turns at-bat in the 10-run rule shortened contest. Holmbeck took the loss.

Brooke Stralow and Emma Sitzmore each clubbed grand slams and Lauren Pannier hit a 2-run homer for the Fillies. Lauren Rice singled four times and Chelsea Eads had two doubles and a triple.

Winning pitcher Allie Wiersema struck out eight batters.

Morrison won the F/S contest 14-1 which followed the varsity in the twilight chill. Brooke Hieronymus, Hailey Schultz, Michaela Jonas and Alysia King each collected hits for PHS (1-2).

Tiger tales: Senior second baseman Mollie Bates, the lone PHS senior, was held out once again Tuesday, still nursing a leg muscle injury. She planned to go full out in Wednesday’s practice and was hopeful to make her season debut Thursday at home vs. St. Bede. .... Princeton fell 13-6 at home Monday with the Lady Crusaders breaking open a one-run game with six runs in the top of the seventh inning.
