Softball Results for Tuesday, June 28th
Kuemper at Denison Schleswig
Denison Schleswig 2
The Kuemper Knights continued to play well within the Hawkeye Ten Conference as they took on Denison Schleswig Tuesday for Strike Out Cancer Night.
The first three innings for both teams went very quickly, but Kuemper was able to get a quick score across the plate when Hailey Ostrander scored off a hit from Malinda Schaefer, who was tagged out before she could reach third. Denison Schleswig struggled offensively against Kamryn Venner in the circle as they didn’t get a base hit until the fourth inning. Speaking of Venner, she pitched all seven innings in the circle, and while struggled a little toward the end of the game, did well enough to record eight strikeouts and only allowed two earned runs off six hits.
Kuemper was able to bring two more runners home in the third inning as Denison Schleswig committed an error in the infield that cost them big. The hits kept coming for Kuemper as Ostrander scored Kaci Peter with an RBI double, in the fourth inning, and Venner was able to knock a three RBI homerun in the fifth inning to give the Knights a 7-0 lead. Venner’s pitching allowed Denison Schleswig to find ways to hit the ball and score two runners in the bottom of the fifth to cut down Kuemper’s lead to 7-2. Despite those runs, the Knights’ defense kept three Monarch runners on the bags in the sixth and Venner bounced back with two strikeouts in the seventh to elevate the Knights past the Monarchs by a final score of 7-2.
The win brought the Knights to 19-13 overall on the season and 14-4 in the Hawkeye Ten Conference. They continue their regular season with a double header on Wednesday, June 29th when they host Glenwood.

Carroll at Gilbert
The Carroll Tigers had a rough night in Raccoon River Conference action Tuesday night as they took on Gilbert and gave up a bunch of runs early on.
The Carroll Tiger offense was able to draw first blood with a run scored in the top of the first inning, but it was Gilbert’s first inning that trumped that performance. Gilbert was able to get 12 runners home and leave little room for Carroll to mount a comeback. Carroll did get three runners home in the top of the second thanks to performances from Parker Adams and Josie Ayala. Parker went a perfect 3-3 with a double, triple, and three RBIs along with a run scored, and Ayala went 1-1 with a homerun shot for an RBI and a run scored. Gilbert’s defense was able to keep their 8 run lead intact up until their offense was able to add two more runs to their total in the fifth that ended the game at 14-4.
The loss dropped Carroll to 14-15 overall on the season and 2-12, ending a four-game winning streak. The Tigers continue the regular season with another conference game on Thursday, June 30th when they take on Ballard at home.

Audubon at CAM Anita
CAM Anita 3
The Audubon Wheelers held on until the end against CAM Anita, but it was a single run that made the difference in the end Tuesday.
While both teams didn’t get a large amount of hits in this game, they got runs in when they needed. Audubon got on the board first in the second inning and took the early 2-0 lead. Jordan Mulford was able to single out to right field and stole second base and was able to score off the CAM Anita error. Mattie Nielsen was also able to get around the bags due to more errors from CAM Anita, but she was brought in by Jordan Porsch who singled to left field. The Cougars were able to tie the ball game up at 2-2 when they scored two runners off two ground ball sac hits.
A big highlight for the Wheelers in this game was the performance from Kali Irlmeier. In five innings in the circle, she put up 10 strikeouts and only allowed two earned runs total. The defense behind her was also quite efficient, getting 18 putouts on 23 chances. Despite a solid defense, CAM Anita was able to get one more run past the Audubon defense in the sixth inning, to take the late 3-2 lead. Audubon’s final chance to tie the game up again was thwarted as they got Kali Irlmeier on first but was struck out twice and had a flyout to the second baseman that awarded the 3-2 win to CAM Anita in the end.
The loss dropped the Wheelers to 11-12 overall on the season. Their final regular season game will take place on Wednesday, June 29th as they travel to take on Griswold.
