W-G girls make short work of Guthrie Center

Riley Jamison is safe as the throw eludes Earlham third baseman Meridith Hockstetler (8) Monday. Cardinal pitcher Kelsey Tibbs recovered the ball to keep Jamison from scoring.

GUTHRIE CENTER — Woodward-Granger pounded 20 hits and crossed the plate nearly as many times Tuesday in their WCC contest with Guthrie Center.

The Hawks (8-4, 5-0) were 17-4 winners in four innings and completed a season sweep of the Tigers (3-6, 1-5) by a combined 29-4 score.

Dalaney Bice had a single and a home run, her sixth of the season. Riley Jamison was 3-for-4 with two doubles, with Miranda Aunspach and Meagan Bandstra both 3-for-4 with two singles and a double apiece. Bree Lesch and Carli Major also had doubles to help fuel the Hawk onslaught.

Jamison yielded four runs on eight hits but was happy just to see the ball put in play, as all four tallies came with her team leading, 15-0. She finished with two strikeouts.

W-G will return to action Friday and Saturday, playing twice both days in the annual Hawk Tournament. The Hawks face Pleasantville at 10 a.m. and Council Bluffs Abraham Lincoln at 2 p.m. Friday before battling Winterset at 10 a.m. and Perry at 2 p.m. Saturday.
