Staying in the thick of the title race, Barker downed visiting Medina 7-2 this afternoon to improve to 8-2 in Niagara-Orleans League softball competition.

Barker broke away from a scoreless deadlock by tallying three times in the third inning on a two-run triple by Lilly Monthony and an RBI single by Peyton Bradley.

The Lady Raiders quickly upped the advantage to 7-0 by scoring 4 times in the fourth frame on a two-run single by Kaylee Stoll and RBI singles by Rachel Sutter and Cole Carnes. Sutter and Aaliyah Wheat both had 2 hits on the day.
