In their first game of the season, Imperial’s senior girls’ softball team defeated Wauneta 12-0 last Thursday.
Coach Denise Smith said the team is competing in the Tri-County South League. Just two other teams, Wauneta and Benkelman, have a senior girls’ softball team this year.
At last Thursday’s game, pitcher Anna Bauerle got the win in the four-inning game with eight strikeouts and two walks. She did not allow a hit.
Offensively, Imperial tallied 14 hits in the shortened game.
Singles were recorded by Sydney Vetter and Cheyanne Kuhlmann; Emma Mollendor and Charlie Carter both had a pair of singles; Abbi Vetter, single and double; Ally Vrbas, two singles and a triple; and Anna Bauerle, two singles and a triple.
