Softball: Top-seeded Rockets knocked off early
The top seed in the Section 1A-East bracket, Randolph was supposed to cruise by eighth-seeded Rushford-Peterson. Then Savannah Skalet took the rubber and changed the outcome.
The Trojans' senior held the Rockets to one hit, by Skyler Turek, in a stunning 1-0 victory Monday in Randolph.
“Tough way to end a great season,” said Randolph head coach Dennis Trom. “We just couldn't get the bats going. Both pitchers did a great job tonight, but unfortunately our one mistake in the field cost us.”
Taking the circle for the Rockets, Morgyn Otte struck out 10 while allowing just three hits, one walk and one run in the loss.
“I am very proud of the way the girls performed all year as they continued to work hard to get better and better,” Trom said. “We have a young team and will apply all the lessons we learned this year to become an even better team next year.”
Randolph ends the 2017 season with a 16-3 record.
