FOND DU LAC
The Lourdes Academy softball team saw their season end come to an end at the hands of the St. Mary’s Spring Ledgers 9-1 in Fond du Lac in a WIAA Division 3 regional game Thursday.
The Ledgers were able to tatoo Knights starter Jayne held for all nine of their runs between the second and fourth innings, including four-run frames in the second and fourth innings.
The Knights were unable to respond until the final inning when Paiton Proud drove in Courteny Thompson to provide Lourdes’ only run of the game. But it was too little, too late.
Held pitched six innings in the loss, striking out one Ledger batter. Proud finished the day as the lone Knight with multiple hits, going 2-for-3 with the RBI. Allison Reischl and Thompson also had single hits for Lourdes in the loss.
