Softball 6/1/2021 VS St. Edmonds

The Southeast Valley softball team bounced back and bounced back big from a tough outing this past weekend to beat the Gaels from Saint Edmond by a score of 12-9. This win was much needed, well deserved, and took every single member in the line up to earn. It wasn’t an easy feat as the St. Ed’s would score early and often in the first three innings of play. The Gaels would post one in the first, one in the second, and seven in the bottom of the third for an early 9-0 lead. A fire was lit under the Jags and they responded with seven runs of their own in the top of the fourth inning. Freshman Ellie Nolte would reach on a base hit single, scoring from first off of a double from senior Emily Jaeschke who would also advance to third due to an error by the Gael’s center fielder. Jordyn Rowley, Emily Hemmestead, and Chloe Hicks would all record singles and an RBI while Maddie Vansickle and Olivia Tenuta would hit doubles and get themselves an RBI each. The Jags would go quietly for the next inning, but gained one run in the sixth when Ellie Nolte reached base, yet again, taking advantage of an error on the Gael defense and went on to score due to pass balls and a base hit RBI from fellow freshman Jordyn Rowley. Maddie Vansickle would start the Jags last inning insurance rally with a walk, Emily Hemmestead would reach on another St. Ed’s error putting two runners on base. Senior Olivia Tenuta would plate both Lauren Eslick (running for Vansickle) and Hemmestead on a single and advance herself to second on the throw home. Alex Kitchen would run for Tenuta and score the Jags’ last run of the night on a mishandled throw down to third. 


In the circle, the duo of sophomore Maddie Vansickle and freshmen Payton Will would prove to be too much to handle for the Gaels. Vansickle got the ball rolling facing 17 batters in the first three innings, making them earn every run scored. Freshman Payton Will showed out in the circle upsetting the Saint Edmond rhythm forcing pop ups and ground balls into a stellar defense behind her. Seniors Marlie Johnson, Emily Jaeschke, and Allison Bethel all stepped up and made big plays in the outfield while freshman shortstop Kenna Scott and senior catcher Chloe Hicks made big time plays on the infield to hold the Gaels scoreless from the third inning on.
