CAMANCHE – The Camanche softball team rebounded from their Monday loss to take down Cascade 12-0 in an impressive performance.
“I’m very proud of the first but I am still not happy,” head coach Andrew Carbajal said. “We have a lot more games ahead of us and we need to string a few wins together.”
Leading that charge was a one-hit performance from Tarah Wehde at pitcher, nabbing 10 strikeouts in the process.
It took Camanche just a few innings to get the job done, scoring four runs in the first inning. That included a 3-run homer from Abby Beal.
“She absolutely torched the ball,” Carbajal said.
Nearly every played in the lineup recorded a hit and an RBI on the night.
The Indians don’t have an easy game on Friday night. They travel to Goose Lake to take on the No. 10 ranked Rebels, who have been mowing over competition in the first few games of the season.
