Local College Sports Update

East Central Softball (11-6) hit the road for the beginning of spring break and also hit the ball with determination. The first two double headers of the road trip had the Falcons coming up big with four victories. The double header against Missouri Valley JV went all for the Falcons with wins of 11-1 and 23-1. Chelsea Bax and Sarah Westhoff collected the wins pitching for the Falcons and the entire team contributed to the hit parade. Haley Zenner led the charge with seven RBI and the rest of the team was right behind her. Elaine Shoenberger, Kaitlin Evans, Michelle Bryant, Ashley Hill, Sarah Westhoff, Alex Adelsberger and Brittany Miller all had multiple hit games.

The Ft. Scott Community College games were closer in the score book as the Falcons ended up winning 5-4 and 6-0 over the Greyhounds. Ashley Hill and Rachel Micke were the winning pitchers in the contests respectively. A tough first game had the Falcons down early 3-0, but they clawed their way back to win the game in the top of the seventh inning. Brittany Miller collected two RBI in the game to lead ECC offensively. The second game was all ECC as Kaitlin Evans and Haley Zenner both registered two RBI each in the 6-0 victory.

I have been behind the microphone for 10 years now. In the course of time, I have covered many elections and have seen first-hand how bruising and hurtful campaigns can be to people. None have been as difficult to watch, however, as the annexation battle in Washington--which pitted good people who care about their community against good people who care about their community.
