Freshman Ann Marie Galloway burst onto the scene in a big way on Thursday.

She pounded a three-run walk-off homer in the opening game of Spring Lake’s doubleheader sweep of Lakes Eight Conference rival Grant and finished the day 7-of-10 from the plate with six RBIs.

“I was hoping for a nice season from her, but I wasn’t looking for that kind of a start,” coach Bill Core said with a smile.

Ashley Keena earned the win, striking out five and walking two.

In the second game, the Lakers scored six runs in the bottom of the first inning and coasted to a 13-7 win.

Junior Varsity: The Lakers swept Grant, 19-1 and 16-14. Macie Kosch stuck out 14 batters over 10 innings and also hit the go-ahead three-run homer in Game 2. Addison Lindsey had two doubles and scored six runs on the day.
