“Pitching was excellent, Hannah was on her game,” Morris noted. “Defensively we did our job.”

The Lady Trojans continue to swing the bat well at the plate collecting 12-hits on the night.

“Hitting, I was pleased until about the fifth inning – it was like we stopped,” said Coach Morris. “We have to keep going. It gets to like we’re satisfied and we can’t be doing that. I want to see us continue to attack.”

“She worked hard,” Osborne stated. “We did have that one inning and part of it was just learning our defense behind her – wasn’t anything she gave up, it was errors behind her.”
