PIONEER HIGH SCHOOL: 4
On Friday evening, the Monroe varsity softball team traveled to Ann Arbor and swept a doubleheader from Pioneer.
In game 1, the Trojans carried just a 5-3 lead into the 6th inning before the offensive explosion began. The offense plated 4 runs in the 6th inning thanks to an RBI single by Ellie Sieler, a double by Haley Frank, and a hard line drive by Samantha Spicer that was misplayed by the Pioneer defense. Pioneer scored a run in the bottom of the inning to make it 9-4, but Monroe put up 9 more runs in the 7th to ice the game, Ellie Sieler, McKenzie Peters, Haley Frank, and Samantha Spicer all put up 3 hits to lead the team offensively. Imari Sortor and Erica Everson added 2 hits apiece, and Hailey Schink pitched a complete game for the win.
In game 2, Alexa Amazeen shut down the Pioneer offense, scattering 7 hits in the shutout win. Amazeen was helped by some terrific defense in the game as well. Kayla Peters hit a long 2-run homer in the first inning, on her way to a 3-hit game to lead the Trojans offensively. Ellie Sieler went 4-4, and Samantha Spicer drove in 2 runs.
With the doubleheader sweep, Monroe improves to 17-4 (11-1 SEC).
