Lady Hornets open conference action with a 13-0 shutout
space
Things looked a little bleak for the Lady Hornets Tuesday as the visiting Florence team loaded up the bags with its first three batters. But then Jessica Slowik started a perfect game of catch with Kenzie Novak behind the plate to pitch three strikeouts in a row and pull Elcho out of a jamb—leading the way to a 13-0 shutout.

As a coach, you never want to rely on one player to make your team, Elcho coach Jamie Robrecht explained, but tonight, Jess did just that. She was amazing on the mound with strikeouts, and all at crucial times.

Staying focused, Slowik delivered a solid performance on the mound, pitching her way through the Bobcat’s lineup. Coupled with great field play by her teammates, the Lady Hornets restricted its number of errors (something which has plagued the team thus far) to just one while forcing Florence to strand nine on the bases.

The girls really worked hard tonight, Robrecht stated. We had a good night on the field and at the plate. Everyone was making contact.

Slowik earned the W in five innings of work as she faced 23 batters. In all, she issued 10 strikeout, fanned a mere three, and gave up four hits.

In protecting the plate, Novak led the team hitting 3-for-3, a night which included a 3-run in the park home run and four RBIs in all. Grace Palubicki went 3-for-4 with an RBI; Brenna DeNamur hit 2-for-3 with an RBI and extra base hit.

Finishing 1-for-3 were Hope Sprenger, also with a pair of RBIs; Makayla Siebers, and RBI; Kaitlyn Paulsen; and Molli Morrison. Slowik went 0-for-3.

I was pleased with how hard and well Brenna hit the ball tonight, Robrecht said. The same with Kenzie. Being up 4-0 in the second, her home run really added a spark.

Elcho increased its advantage to 7-0 by the end of the second inning before upping the score by six in the third. A move that more than secured the win for the ladies.

After the game was over, I told the girls that this is how you win or lose a game, the coach explained, if you don’t get hits—you don’t win.

Elcho, now 1-0 in conference, 2-3 overall will be off the remainder of this week before returning to action Monday in hosting Goodman-Pembine. The busy week continues Tuesday with a trip to Three Lakes and then closing out things on Thursday by visiting Crandon.
