MKS vs. Mount Pulaski          Send a link to a friend

[June 18, 2007]  MOUNT PULASKI -- Not only was the temperature hot on Saturday, so was Rebecca Brooks on the mound for MKS Jewelers. Rebecca allowed only two hits and had seven strikeouts to help her team win 9-0 in Mount Pulaski in a game called after three innings because of the heat.

Breanna Waller had two hits and two RBIs. Jordan Wood had a hit and one run scored. Madison Bishop had two hits and one run scored. Ashley Getchel had a hit and two runs scored. Hailey Renfro scored twice. Abby Cline, Stephanie Smith and Kieran Foster each scored once for the team. Hayley Turner had two walks and Jessica Plummer had three walks to move the runners around the bases.

Lilly Picker was losing pitcher for Mount Pulaski, and Julie Beccue helped in the hot-weather efforts. Hannah Freer had a double. Jessie Maus had a single. Ashlee Mammen and Briana Stewart each had a walk. Hannah Riedle had two walks to help Mount Pulaski in their efforts.

Coach Plummer for MKS said: "It was unbelievably hot, and the girls did a remarkable job to make it through the game. We had some girls get sick, and Mount Pulaski did also. We decided to only play three innings in a day that was supposed to be a doubleheader. It just made sense to not get the girls sick for a game that is supposed to be fun in the first place. They were not performing in an ironman competition, but they definitely were strong to make it through the tough conditions."
