Softball roundup: Battle of aces results in split for Trojans

Fruitport and Orchard View unleashed their ace pitchers on Tuesday, and the Trojans' Bari Lee and the Cardinals' Megan Vanderwall turned in two strong performances apiece, resulting in a doubleheader split between the two rivals. Fruitport took Game 1, 2-1, behind Lee's complete game two-hitter. She struck out five Orchard View batters and didn't issue a walk. Senior Amanda Martin provided the clutch hits for Fruitport, as she tallied both RBIs. Lindsey Slocum was the benefactor, scoring both runs for Fruitport.

Fruitport coach Bob Dorman was confident the win sealed a second-place finish for Fruitport in the Lakes Eight Conference, trailing only league-leading Fremont. The Trojans are 19-9 overall and 9-3 in league play.

Vanderwall turned the tables in Game 2, as her seven-strikeout complete-game effort shut down the Trojans in a 5-1 contest. A solo home run by Orchard View’s Mary Guidice got the Cardinals rolling in the first inning.


Rachael Adams banged out six hits and drove in three runs, helping Spring Lake’s varsity softball team sweep Grant on Tuesday.

The Lakers won 14-3 in the opener, then took the second game, 14-9.
