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.
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.
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.
