The Spring Lake softball team swept a doubleheader at Ludington on Wednesday, 16-4 and 13-2. The Lakers ended both games in five innings.
“They’re a young team, and they’ve been struggling most of the year, but you’ve still got to push the runs across the plate, play defense and pitch,” said coach Bill Core. “We’re happy to get the two conference victories.”
R.J. Marrow earned the win for the Lakers in Game 1. The junior walked two, struck out six, and gave up four hits. She also banged out two hits to help propel the Lakers offensively.
Ann Marie Galloway scored three runs, while Kelsee Zuidema had three hits — including two doubles.
Ashley Keena got the nod for Spring Lake in Game 2. The senior walked two, struck out three and gave up two hits.
Marrow led Spring Lake offensively with three hits. Desi Sherwood, Keena and Galloway each added two hits. One of Galloway’s hits was an inside-the-park home run.
