Your JV Softball team took on the Green Mountain Rams in the league opener. In the 1st, the Rams scored on a walk, error and single. In the bottom of the 1st, the Gators plated 6 with Taylor Zangari starting it off with a single. Taylor VanDyke was hit by a pitch, Chantell Gordy-George got an RBI single. Kaitlyn Startnes singled, Montana Odgers reached on a flyball to center mishandled by the Rams. Abby Sisk, Jackie Paik, and Myranda Thrash walked and it was 6-1. In the top of the 2nd, Taylor VanDyke got her 3rd and 4th strikeouts to help keep the Rams from answering. In the bottom of the 2nd, Kaitlyn Barnes blasted a triple to left to bring in Darian Hausman and Chantelle Gordy-George. Abby Sisk drove in Montana Odgers who had walked with a productive groundout, and it was 10-1. In the bottom of the 3rd, the Gators got a single by Myranda Thrash, and then 8 of the next 9 batters walked helping to plate 7 more. Taylor VanDyke closed out the 4th inducing a flyball corralled by Chantelle Gordy-George and her 6th and 7th strikeouts to seal the win. Freshman pitcher, Taylor VanDyke notched her 1st JV win with a solid performance surrending only 1 run on 1 hit. The Gators record goes to 1-4, 1-0 in the league.
