5/30/23 WIAA Division 5 Softball Sectional Semi-Final: (1) McDonell Lady Macks 10, (2) Athens 0 (5 inn)

In their final home game of the season, this time in a Sectional playoff game, the Lady Macks (18-6, 11-3 Western Cloverbelt Conference) started out with a bang against the Bluejays (15-8,8-0 Marawood North Conference), as McDonell junior Katie Ruf struck out the side on just 10 pitches in the top of the first.

In the Lady Macks' half of the inning, they plated 2 runs, then really opened things up in the bottom of the second, sending 11 batters to the plate and scoring 5 times, McDonell continued to ride strong performances all over the diamond, eventually ending the game in just five innings and advancing to the Sectional Final.

Sophomore leadoff hitter Kendall Hepfler was 2-3, walked once, swiped two bases, and scored three times, while senior Becca Baier went 3-4 at the plate with a walk and run scored, and junior Aubrey Dorn clobbered a pair of doubles  In the circle, junior pitcher Katie Ruf was dominant once again as she struck out eight.
