G-R bows in annual senior softball contest
Two big back-to-back scoring innings keyed the Livingston County League to a 15-5 victory over the Genesee Region League in the annual senior softball game between the conferences this afternoon at Genesee Community College.
Trailing 3-2, Livingston County regained the lead for good by scoring five times in the third inning as a trio of errors plated four of the tallies.
The Livingston lead quickly increased to 11-3 after four run fourth inning highlighted by a two-run single by Andrea Coyle and an RBI single by Meghan Mietlicki, both from Caledonia-Mumford. Mietlicki also had RBI singles to key two run scoring bursts in both the first and sixth innings.
The G-R took its only lead at 3-2 by scoring 3 times in the second inning on hits by Kylie Schlagenhauf, Alexa Cory and Serina Velletta, all from Oakfield-Alabama, and Kassandra Norman from Holley and an error.
The G-R’s other two runs came in the sixth inning on a sacrifice fly by Madison Papaj from Holley and an RBI single by Velletta. A triple by Anna Kabel of Notre Dame ignited the uprising which also included hits by Norman and Schlagenhauf.
Norman went the distance in the circle for the G-R, which had only nine players on hand for the contest, registering 6 strikeouts.
The G-R lineup also included Miranda Lembcke from Lyndonville and Emily Keeler and Kimmy Keeler from Notre Dame.
