(Wolf Lake, Ill.) - Shawnee was no match for Elverado on the softball diamond last Friday, as the Lady Falcons’ bats exploded for 18 runs in an 18-0 shutout victory on the road. The win was the fifth in a row for Elverado.
“We hit the ball hard today,” said EHS coach Donette Wheatley. “Emma Funk came in and pitched two great innings after Allie (Whittington) shut them down the first two. It was a great team effort.”
Every starter had at least on hit for the Falcons, and Funk (3-3, 3 R, 3 RBI, HR, HBP) and Whittington (3-4, 2 R, 2 RBI, 2B, HR) each had three hits.
Morgan Bernardini (2-4, R, 2 RBI, HR), Emma Yates (2-3, 2 R, RBI), Kaity Lewis (2-4, 3 R, RBI), Chloe Barnes (1-3, 2 R, RBI), Morgan Cashion (2-4, 2 R, 3 RBI), Sydney Schenk (2-4, R) and Zoe Maple (2-3, 2 R, RBI, BB) also hit safely for EHS against Shawnee.
Neither Whittington nor Funk allowed a hit or a walk, and the duo combined for nine strikeouts with Funk fanning five, Whittington four.
