Arbogast leads Blue Jackets to big win
NEW RIEGEL – It wasn’t a question of what Taylor Arbogast could do to help her Blue Jackets win its toughest early season test; it was a question of what didn’t she do.
The New Riegel junior had a home run, a double, stole a base, scored three times and drove in three runs as New Riegel handed Milan Edison, a Division III district champion last year, its first loss of the season, a 6-2 decision.
Taylor Kirian was 2 for 3 on the day with an RBI and two runs scored. Kara Scherger had a base hit and RBI and Lauren Zoeller had a pair of base hits as New Riegel improved to 4-0.
Kirian picked up the win in the circle scattering six hits and allowing two runs, one earned.
Edison falls to 3-1.
