Annika Gereau may not have been perfect on Monday, but she certainly was impressive.
The freshman hurler for Winneconne tossed a no-hitter and carried a perfect game into the sixth inning an 8-0 win in the first game of a softball doubleheader sweep of Omro.
The Wolves won the second game, 7-3.
Gereau struck out 10 and didn’t walk a batter. She lost the perfect game with two outs in the sixth inning on a Winneconne throwing error.
The Wolves backed Gereau with plenty of offense as well, scoring runs in each of the first two innings before pulling away over the final three frames.
Ashley Breister went 2-for-3 and drove in a pair of runs for Winneconne, while Abby King, Sam Olson and Morgan Herbst each added two hits.
Omro took the lead early in the second game, but couldn’t hold off the Wolves, who tied the game at 3 in the fourth inning and then scored three runs in the fifth en route to the win.
Lauren Fisher had two hits, including a home run to pace Omro.
Mikala Russell got the win in relief for Winneconne, tossing three innings of hitless relief with four strikeouts.
