The Glenwood Rams softball team picked up its fourth win of the season on Thursday with a 10-0, five inning win over Red Oak.
The Rams scored runs in all five innings, while defensively holding Red Oak to just three hits.
“Unlike Underwood when we stranded 17 people, tonight we got hits and we got them in,” Glenwood Coach Tim Stanton said.
The Rams finished with 10 hits. Senior Cassie Kruse was 3-for-3 with a home run and four runs driven in. Jaelin Stanton added a pair of hits and three RBIs.
Glenwood was able to win the game despite missing four regular starters.
“Earlier in the year, we talked about depth and we have it,” Stanton said. “I thought the kids that stepped in and replaced the starters that were gone did a great job. I think everybody that we suited played. We did what we needed to do.”
Stanton added depth could be a curse if the players aren’t aware of the importance of it.
“At least you know you can fill any situation that comes up,” Stanton said. “If you can have kids play roles and you can fill all those gaps, then you’re the perfect team. And that’s what we’re trying to accomplish here.”
Lisa Nebel earned the win in the circle, scattering three hits and fanning four over her five innings of work.
