Elly Exline had two hits, scored a run and stole three bases to lead Salem. Taylor Thorpe and Brooke Veglia each had RBI singles. Salem jumped 2-0 in the first and held the lead til the bottom of the 4th. In the bottom of the 4th, softball turned to football as Marlington scored two touchdowns. It was an inning worth forgetting – look … squirrel !!!
Hayden Carner threw out a runner attempting to steal second and Bailee Thorn applied the swift tag. Carner did a very good job behind the dish. Sara Castles kept her composure to make an out in left on a towering fly ball.
Salem will play tomorrow at home vs Carrollton.
Salem JV lost to Marlington.
Gabi Gibson did a great job catching and had a hit. Carlee Best pitched well. Madison Barber made multiple assists defensively from third including two outs at the plate. Ashlee King continued to do a good job at short.
