(high school softball)

(#1-4A) Le Mars 11, Spencer 0  --  5 innings        (RECORD: 30-and-0 / 13-and-0)

(LE MARS) --Molly Renken swatted a three-run homer and recorded her 18th shutout of the season on a two-hitter to lead top-rated Le Mars to an 11-0, five-inning Lakes Conference softball victory over Spencer Monday night at the Bulldog Sports Complex.  Le Mars finished the regular season at 30-and-0 and finished 13-and-0 in the Lakes Conference.  Renken, who walked one and struck out eight, ran her season pitching mark to 24-and-0. Her home run in the second inning capped a six-run inning.  Mary Kate Eckstaine had a two-run double just before Renken's towering shot landed beyond the right-center field fence.  Eckstaine also had a pair of RBI singles and finished 3-for-3 with four RBI's.  Janessa Milbrodt also went 3-for-3 and drove in two runs.  Both Spencer hits came in the first inning.  Renken then retired 13 of the next 14 batters.  Le Mars will host the winner of the Thursday night's Spencer/Humboldt 4A Regional game on Saturday night in the Regional semifinals.



(LE MARS) -- River Valley took advantage of seven errors and ten walks to beat Gehlen Catholic 11-1 in five innings Monday night in the Class 1A Regionals at the Riverview Complex.  Abby Freking delivered a two-out RBI single in the first inning to put the Lady Jays in front 1-0.  But the highlights were few and far between after that.  The Wolverines scored three runs in the second on four walks and a pair of hits to go in front to stay.  An eleven-batter, five-run third inning put River Valley in charge at 8-1 and they won it in the bottom of the fifth with three more runs thanks to three more errors and a pair of walks.  Eighth-grader Makenna Thomas checked Gehlen on four hits with no walks and the Wolverines played errorless softball behind her.  Jill Kessenich and Brittany Krienert split the pitching chores for Gehlen, allowing five hits but walking ten batters and hitting another.  Gehlen finishes the season at 11-and-18 while River Valley takes a 6-and-17 record to play top-rated Akron-Westfield in Akron on Wednesday in the quarterfinals.

Gehlen Catholic 5, Marcus/Meriden-Cleghorn 2           (RECORD: 11-and-11 / 9-and-9)

(LE MARS) -- The Le Mars Bulldogs nailed down their third straight Lakes Conference baseball title Monday night, beating Spencer 12-2 in five innings at the Bulldogs Sports Complex.  Jacob Lamoreux led the way, tossing a five-hitter with four walks and four strike outs and had a double and triple at the plate to drive in three runs.  Colan Borchers, Dayton Rand and Matt Ellefson also had two hits each to pace a twelve-hit Le Mars offensive attack.  The Bulldogs scored four runs in the first, the fourth and the fifth innings and won the game on the ten-run rule.  Number-five Le Mars improves to 21-and-4 for the season and 12-and-1 in the Lakes Conference.

(LE MARS) -- Mitchell Flack took a no-hitter into the seventh inning Monday night before teaming up with Michael Whitehead on a two-hitter as Gehlen Catholic won their fifth straight, 5-2, over Marcus/Meriden-Cleghorn at the Riverview Complex.  Jared Gross led off the seventh inning with a bloop single to left to spoil the no-hit bid by Flack and then scored on a double to right-center by Tanner Utesch.  Utesch scored a second run on a wild pitch.  Whitehead then came on in relief and struck out two of the three batters he faced to halt the rally, earning a save.  The Eagles had runners on second and third when a Whitehead strikeout ended the contest.  Flack struck out six while walking one in his 6 1/3 innings of work to run his record to 6-and-0.  Blake Wiltgen broke up a scoreless tie with a fourth inning RBI single and then scored a second run on a RBI single by Flack.  Solomon Freking made it 4-0 with a two-run hit in the fifth and Freking scored on Ty Kurth's squeeze bunt for a 5-0 lead heading into the final two innings.  Gehlen improves to 11-and-11 for the season and 9-and-9 in the W-E-C.  M-M-C, which started the night in second place behind Hinton in the War Eagle Conference race, fell to 16-and-7 with a 12-and-6 conference mark.

(REMSEN) -- Remsen St. Mary's broke away from a 1-all tie with an eight-run fourth inning Tuesday night and went on to beat Gehlen Catholic 9-4 in War Eagle Conference baseball action in Remsen.  The Hawks capitalized on five walks and an error to turn a pitcher's duel into a one-sided affair.  Three consecutive walks were followed by RBI singles by Andrew Pottebaum and Jerimiah Lewis.  Nate Roder then delivered a two-run double.  A Gehlen error sent another run across the plate and a bases-loaded walk and a wild pitch completed the fourth inning blitz.  Mitchell Flack drove in a pair of runs for Gehlen in the final two innings but the 9-1 deficit was too much to overcome.  Flack finished with three hits and three RBI's for the Jays.  Matt Wesselmann threw a complete game for the Hawks, scattering nine hits and walking two while striking out eleven to improve to 6-and-2 for the season.  Andrew Pottebaum led Remsen St. Mary's six-hit attack with two hits.  Blake Wiltgen and Austin Herbst combined to walk seven and both hit a batter for Gehlen.  Wiltgen took the loss to fall to 1-and-7.  The loss also halted Gehlen's five-winning streak as they closed the regular season at 11-and-12 and finished 9-and-10 in the War Eagle Conference.  Remsen St. Mary's improves to 19-and-8 for the season and 12-and-6 in the W-E-C with two regular season games to play.  Gehlen plays their District tournament opener next Tuesday against Harris-Lake Park at the Riverview Complex.

(LE MARS) --The Le Mars Bulldogs erupted for 13 runs in the third inning and went on to beat Emmetsburg 20-10 in six innings Tuesday night at the Bulldog Sports Complex in the final Lakes Conference baseball game of the 2013 season.  Andy Hefner's three hits and four RBI's led a 15-hit attack for Le Mars.  Parker Rolfes, Jacob Lamoreux, Kendall Candor, Colan Borchers and Dayton Rand had two hits each.  The Bulldogs had six extra base hits in the game, including a home run by Mitch Timp.  Tyler DeVos and Hunter Rowe split the pitching chores, giving up a combined nine hits and walking seven.  Le Mars improves to 22-and-4 for the season and 13-and-1 in the conference.

(LE MARS) -- Unrated Humboldt took advantage of four errors in the first two innings by top-rated Le Mars to score three runs and then held off a late rally to upset the Lady Bulldogs 3-2 in 4A Regional softball action Saturday night at the Bulldog Sports Complex in Le Mars.  The loss brought a crushing end to an unbeaten season and left Le Mars still searching for that elusive first-ever State Tournament trip in softball.  Eighth-grader Avery Terwilliger wriggled out of jam after jam Saturday night to pitch the Wildcats into the Regional finals Tuesday in Le Mars.  The Lady Bulldogs left runners at second and third in the second inning and stranded a runner at second base in the fifth.  Le Mars finally broke through for a run in the sixth on a sacrifice fly by Mary Kate Eckstaine but stranded another base runner at third base.  Kylee Lang cut the 3-1 deficit to 3-2 in the seventh with a one-out single to left, scoring Emily Pick from second base after she opened the seventh with double off the top of the center field fence.  Lang advanced to second on a wild pitch giving Le Mars a glimmer of hope.  But fly ball outs by Ashley Phelan and Holly Schneider ended the game and the season with the potential tying run stranded on second base.  Molly Renken suffered her first loss in the pitching circle after going 24-and-0 in the regular season.  She allowed two hits in the first two innings and three unearned runs.  After Avery Termilliger's two-run double in the second made it 3-0, Renken then settled down and retired the final 17 batters of the game, striking out five.  Le Mars finishes the season at 30-and-1.
