4/30/24 Softball Doubleheader: (Game 1) McDonell Lady Macks 15, Osseo-Fairchild 1. (Game 2) McDonell 4, O/F 0.

Headed south for a doubleheader in Osseo, the Lady Macks (10-2, 7-2 Western Cloverbelt Conference) started out quickly against the Thunder (4-10, 2-7 WCC), as McDonell looked to bounce back from a pair of conference defeats on Friday night.

The visitors' bats were alive and well in the first game, as Lady Macks hitters amassed 13 hits, including a 3-4 outing for senior catcher Morgan Wirtz. Though the offense didn't come as easily in game two, junior left fielder Kendall Hepfler went 2-3 and senior pitcher Katie Ruf 2-2, and, after coming close in multiple at bats, senior first baseman Aubrey Dorn clobbered a solo home run to deep center field in the 6th.

Ruf struck out seven batters in game one in just three innings of work, and then hurled an absolute gem in the second half of the doubleheader, with 12 Ks and a seven-inning shutout win.
