Batavia, Bethel-Tate, and Glen Este emerge as winners in early-going of fastpitch softball action

The 2007 season for Clermont County high school varsity fast pitch softball is underway. Batavia, Glen Este, and Bethel-Tate each opened the campaign with victories.

Batavia

Head coach Terry Sheehan’s Bulldogs showed very little love by levelling Loveland’s Tigers 12-2. Jamie Bare was the victorious pitcher for the Green and White. Brit Luginbuhl scored three runs and had four runs batted in (RBI). Heather Harris had two hits and two RBI and Britt Cook scored thrice.

Glen Este

The Trojans showed little or none as they mastered Mercy’s Bobcats 5-2. Caroline Kirker aided her own winning pitching efforts by driving in two teammates. Jody Skeen smashed a home run for the Purple and White.

Bethel-Tate

The Tigers clobbered Cincinnati Country Day 15-0. Hanah Rinehart gave up just five hits and struck out eight of the Indians to earn the triumph on the mound. Kristin Coburn paced the Red and Gray attack with three hits and four RBI, Shena Stayden had three hits and two RBI, and Rachel Johnson had three base raps.

Western Brown edged Bethel -Tate 2-1 in a Southern Buckeye Conference American Division 10-inning classic. Reinhart allowed just four hits to the Broncos, unfortunately she was backed by just two hits from her teammates.
