GREENVILLE – The Springfield Northeastern Lady Jets brought a 10-3 record to Lady Wave Stadium for a Thursday night matchup with Greenville and it was the Lady Wave defeating the visitors 9-0 in non-conference softball action at Stebbins Field.

“Great day for Lady Wave Softball,” said Greenville coach, Jerrod Newland. “Good team today coming in and playing. Their coach a former All-Stater 25-years ago and comes back. They drove 90-mintutes and came and played a great game.”

Cromwell led off the bottom of the 6th with a double to center, Morgan Thompson legged out an infield single and Cromwell scored on a fielder’s choice off the bat of Marissa Hicks for the final run of the night giving the Lady Wave a 9-0 win.

“We had a better offensive mindset tonight,” said Newland. “We’ve been talking about getting a little more aggressive and tonight we came out with a good offensive approach. We’ll get better. We play great teams day in and day out with the league and this so we’re just getting better.”
