Queens swept in MAC opener

ELDRIDGE — Clinton managed just three hits Tuesday as it opened the Mississippi Athletic Conference softball season with a pair of losses to North Scott.

The Lancers (6-1), ranked 13th in Class 4A in the first Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union ratings of the season, won 12-0 and 9-0 on their home field.

“Strong pitching and phenomenal defense by North Scott,” Clinton coach Emily Hoague said. “We did not have hitting.”

Winning pitcher Anne DeVries homered and drove in four runs in the first game, and McKenna Heim had a pair of doubles and two RBIs.

The losses dropped Clinton’s record to 2-7.
