Molly Bryan struck out 14 and scattered two hits for the Glenwood softball team in a 8-1 win over Griswold on Thursday.
Bryan, a freshman, improved to 3-0 on the season with the win. She has not allowed an earned run in three starts this season and has struck out 32.
“We seem to be putting up runs but we still aren’t hitting that well,” said Glenwood coach Tim Stanton. “We’re happy to be averaging eight runs a game but we still haven’t put it all together yet. With Molly pitching as well as she has and getting a lot of strikeouts, we need to concentrate on staying focused in the field and being ready when they do hit the ball.”
The Rams finished with six hits, led by Sophie Ringsdorf’s 2-for-3 night.
A fifth inning two-run home run by Ana VanScoy blew open a 1-1 game and lifted the Glenwood softball team to an 8-2 win over Fremont-Mills last Wednesday.
The Rams were led at the plate by Emily Robinson and VanScoy who finished with three hits each. VanScoy’s home run was her first career round tripper and keyed a two-run fifth and five-run sixth for the Rams.
“I still don’t think we’re hitting real well yet and we didn’t play defense great defense but Molly carried us,” said Glenwood coach Tim Stanton of starting pitcher Molly Bryan, who finished with 10 strikeouts and did not allow an earned run. “She’s striking out a lot of batters so we have to be ready when they do hit her. It’s an adjustment and we’ll make it.”
The Glenwood girls softball team won its season opener 10-0 over A-H-S-T last Tuesday.
Ram starting pitcher Molly Bryan struck out eight and allowed three hits in the win.
“She really threw well,” said Glenwood coach Tim Stanton of Bryan. “You could really tell out there how much better she’s gotten from last year. She kept them off balance and the way she was throwing, we knew she was in control.”
The Rams finished with eight hits of their own, led by Emily Robinson’s 2-for-2 night with two runs scored. Sophie Ringsdorf added a triple and a run scored.
Chloe Newman’s pinch hit double drove in three runs.
“This was a good opening game for us,” said Stanton. “We got got a lot of base runners and used some our experience to get them around. We didn’t hit it real hard but we had a lot of hits.”
