Wingers get first win of the season
Junior Tesha Buck went 3-for-4 with two doubles and a triple to help Red Wing secure its first win of the season, an 8-1 victory against Rochester Century Wednesday in Red Wing.
Buck also made numerous great plays and finished with 10 assists and two put outs in the game, Red Wing head coach Cheryl Borgen said.
“Tesha was something to watch all night,” she said. “The only time she didn’t get a hit it was a line shot to left field. Defensively, she was just I don’t even know what to say. She took away things that should have been base hits. It was amazing.”
Junior Laura Chalmers threw a complete game for the Wingers (1-14, 0-11 Missota), giving up one unearned run on five hits and striking out two. Senior Elle Anderson was 1-for-3 with a double and an RBI, sophomore Hailee Johnson went 1-for-4 with a double and two RBI and senior Kelsey Bystrom finished 1-for-3 with an RBI.
“We played well,” Borgen said. “We played like ourselves.”
Red Wing committed one error in the win.
