(#4-4A) Le Mars 4, Western Christian 1

(#3-3A) Sergeant Bluff-Luton 20, Gehlen Catholic 5

(HULL) -- Madison Heidebrink's three-run homer in the top of the seventh inning Monday night snapped a 1-1 tie and sent fourth-ranked (4A) Le Mars past Western Christian 4-1 in Lakes Conference softball action at Hull.  Mary Kate Eckstaine drove in the Lady Bulldogs first run with a bunt.  The Wolfpack tied the game with a run in the fifth inning off Molly Renken.  It was the first run off Renken since May and snapped her scoreless streak at 64 innings.  Le Mars improves to 19-and-0 for the season and 7-and-0 in the Lakes Conference.

(LE MARS) -- Third-ranked (3A) Sergeant Bluff-Luton spoiled Gehlen Catholic's return home after nearly three weeks of playing on the road with a 20-5 rout of the Lady Jays Monday night in a non-conference softball game, matching two former War Eagle Conference rivals.  The Lady Jays haven't played at home since May 23rd because of flooding at the River View Complex during the Memorial Day weekend.  The occaissional rains since then have prevented Gehlen from playing on the home diamond.  The Warriors scored seven runs in the first inning, collecting seven of their 23 hits for the night in the opening frame.  Gehlen battled back to within 10-5 thanks to a a four-run fourth inning.  S-B-L turned the game into a rout with eight runs in the seventh to extend a 12-5 lead into a 17-run advantage going into the bottom of the seventh.  Gehlen falls to 9-and-11 for the season.

(#7-3A) Le Mars 7, Western Christian 3

(HULL) -- Hunter Rowe, Parker Rolfes and Colan Borchers combined to strike out ten batters and allowed just one hit against Western Christian Monday night as number-seven (3A) Le Mars held off the Wolfpack to win 7-3 in Lakes Conference baseball action at Hull.  Rowe started the game on the mound for Le Mars and worked two and one-third, giving up Western's only hit, a second inning RBI single by Daniel Van Maanen.  He walked two and hit three batters before turning the ball over to Rolfes in the third.  A wild pitch by Rolfes allowed the Wolfpack to pull to with 4-3 in the third inning.  He quieted Western Christian's offense after that, striking out seven and walking one while holding the Wolfpack hitless.  Borchers threw the final inning, striking out two of the three batters he faced.  Rolfes earned the win to improve to 5-and-0.  Offensively, Colan Borchers' two-run single in the fourth inning capped a three-run inning that extended the Bulldogs' lead to 7-3.  Parker Rolfes, Jacob Lamoreux and Dayton Rand paced the Bulldogs' ten-hit attack with two hits each.  Le Mars improves to 11-and-1 for the season and 7-and-0 in the Lakes Conference.

Le Mars 12, Storm Lake 1

Gehlen Catholic 9, West Sioux 8

(STORM LAKE) -- Janessa Milbrodt led an eleven-hit attack with three hits and Molly Renken threw a three-hitter with ten strike outs as number-four (4A) Le Mars remained unbeaten at 20-and-0 with a 12-1 Lakes Conference softball victory at Storm Lake Wednesday night.  The Lady Bulldogs are 8-and-0 in conference play.  The game did go a full seven innings as Le Mars peppered the scoreboard with runs throughout the contest.  A four-run seventh inning extended an 8-1 lead into an 11-run victory.  Emily Pick and Emily Ellefson had two hits for Le Mars and Ashley Phelan drove in two runs.

(LE MARS) --Senior Brittany Krienert got a pair of fly ball outs with two on in the seventh inning to nail down a 9-8 War Eagle Conference softball win for Gehlen Catholic against West Sioux Wednesday night at the Riverview Complex.  The Lady Jays erased an 8-5 deficit with a four-run sixth inning, getting RBI singles from Abigail Krienert and Miranda Bunkers and a sacrifice fly from Shannon Smith.  Bunkers' hit snapped an 8-all tie.  Gehlen sent ten batters to the plate in the sixth and collected six of their 14 hits.  Bailey Wiltgen had three hits to lead the Lady Jays offensively.  Brittany Krienert got the win in relief.  Gehlen improves to 10-and-11 for the season and 6-and-6 in the War Eagle Conference.

Storm Lake 2, Le Mars 1

West Sioux 9, Gehlen Catholic 5

(STORM LAKE) -- Storm Lake senior pitcher Nic Seaman won a classic pitcher's duel against Le Mars ace Colan Borchers Wednesday night as Storm Lake edged Le Mars 2-1 in Lakes Conference baseball action in Storm Lake.  Seaman checked a usually potent Bulldog hitting attack to two hits and struck out twelve.  Borchers scattered five hits and struck out ten.  The Tornadoes scored both runs in the first inning on a lead-off home run by Aaron Krier and squeeze bunt by Grant Kofmehl.  The Bulldogs scored in the fourth on a sacrifice fly by Andy Hefner.  Hefner and Hunter Rowe had the two hits for Le Mars.  Seaman struck out the final four batters of the game to quell any hopes of a late-game rally.  The loss drops Le Mars to 7-and-1 in the Lakes Conference and 11-and-2 for the season.

(LE MARS) -- West Sioux struck for seven runs in the first inning and Gehlen Catholic never recovered, dropping a War Eagle Conference baseball match-up 9-5 Wednesday night at the Riverview Complex.  Gehlen ace Blake Wiltgen couldn't get out of the first inning against the Falcons, failing to retire a batter before turning the ball over to Austin Herbst.  Michael Whitehead finished the final two innings.  Wiltgen and Whitehead along with Solomon Freking had two hits each for Gehlen and Wiltgen added two RBI's.  The Jays fall to 4-and-8 for the season and 4-and-7 in league play.

Hinton 2, Gehlen Catholic 0

(LE MARS) -- Hinton senior Breana Bollmeyer fired a two-hitter with one walk and seven strike outs to pitch the Blackhawks past Gehlen Catholic 2-0 Thursday night in War Eagle Conference softball at the Riverview Complex.  Kelli Gleason's RBI ground out in the second inning and a RBI double by Taylor Johnson in the fourth accounted for the only runs of the game.  Bollmeyer allowed a first inning single by Bailey Wiltgen and a bunt single by Jill Kessenich in the third.  She retired the final eleven batters of the game as Hinton improved to 14-and-4 for the season and 11-and-3 in the conference.  Brittany Krienert probably threw her best game of her career, scattering seven hits with 17 of the 21 outs recorded on the infield.  Both teams played errorless softball.  Gehlen falls to 10-and-12 for the season and 6-and-7 in the War Eagle Conference.

(#9-1A) Hinton 1, Gehlen Catholic 0

(LE MARS) -- Blake Wiltgen returned to the mound Thursday night against Hinton, a night after failing to get out of the first inning in a start against West Sioux,  and the Gehlen left-handed turned in a much more Wiltgen-like performance, losing a pitcher's duel to Morgan Wenzel and the Blackhawks, 1-0 at the Riverview Complex.  Wenzel finished with a three-hitter with seven strike outs while Wiltgen scattered six hits and struck out four.  Skyler Beller singled home the lone run in the sixth inning for Hinton.  Wiltgen also had one of Gehlen's hits with Angel Chagolla and Austin Herbst collecting the other two safeties.  Hinton improves to 15-and-3 for the year and 13-and-1 in the War Eagle Conference.  Gehlen falls to 4-and-9 for the season and 4-and-8 in the W-E-C.

(LE MARS) -- There's an old adage in baseball that says when the summer temperatures warm up, so do the bats.  That hasn't exactly held true this week as the hometown teams have been involved in several pitcher's duels.  Le Mars' Jacob Lamoreux locked up in such a duel Friday night at the Bulldog Sports Complex as Le Mars beat Sioux City North 3-0 in a non-conference baseball match-up.  Lamoreux checked the North Stars to two hits with no walks and two strike outs.  A bases-loaded walk to Dayton Rand in the fourth inning snapped a scoreless tie and put Le Mars in front 1-0.  The Bulldogs scratched out a couple more runs in the sixth on a sacrifice fly by Andy Hefner and Matt Ellefson scored on a wild pitch.  Le Mars had only four hits with Rand, Lamoreux, Hunter Rowe and Kendall Candor getting a hit each.  Le Mars improves to 12-and-2 with the victory.
