Senecas beat Tornadoes
Magaret Bowers belted a three-run homer to give Calvert a bit of breathing room Monday as the Senecas dropped crosstown Columbian in a 14-10 slugfest.
Most of the runs came early, with Calvert taking a 6-0 lead in the bottom of the first before plating four in the second to go up 10-7.
Columbian trailed 11-9 after the third inning and added a run in the top of the fifth, but could get no closer.
Bowers added two singles and another RBI for the Senecas (4-3), Nicole Fretz had three runs and two RBIs off a double and single and Kate Brickner and Nicole Bickley each scored twice and drove in a pair with a double and a single.
Gabby Bennett chipped in two runs and two singles and Allison Huss scored twice and doubled to help Bickley (3-1) get the win in five innings of relief.
Roni Daughenbaugh’s two triples and six RBIs paced the Tornadoes.
Autum Kuzma scored twice, doubled and singled, Kendalyn Sarka doubled and singled, and Brittany DuMonte and Mercedes Omlor both scored twice.

Reiter a mystery for Gophers
FOSTORIA – Meghan Reiter wasn’t untouchable, but Ridgemont did very little when it got the chance.
Reiter fanned eight Monday and St. Wendelin allowed only two balls to leave the infield – Ridgemont’s only hits – in a five-inning 11-0 victory.
The Mohawks, meanwhile, had plenty of offense, and Reiter helped there as well.
She went 2 for 2 with a solo homer, a double and two other runs while Edy Mowrey belted a two-run homer and a two-run double.
Cailin Reineck tripled in a run, singled and scored two runs, Raegan Preble scored twice and singled in a run, and Jessica Holman and Sammie Digby both singled and scored.
Sara McFadden suffered the loss for the Gophers.
Keysten Creamer doubled and Taylor Knapp singled. Ridgemont’s only other runner reached after getting hit.

Sara Gier suffered the loss despite scattering four hits and a walk against the Bulldogs.
Jaya Smalley and Justeen Searfoss both doubled for the Rams (6-4, 3-1 NCC), and Maranda Stansbery singled and scored.
