The Lincolnwood High School softball team is still in search of their first win after losses to Vandalia and Athens on March 18 and 19.
On Monday, March 18, the Vandals put up 12 runs in the first six innings to score a 12-5 victory over the host Lady Lancers.
The visitors would score four runs in the first, followed by a run in the second, two in the third and three in the fourth to take a 10-5 lead. Lincolnwood's runs would come in the first inning (one) and the third inning (four). The Vandals would tack on two more runs in the sixth to sew up the seven run win.
Morgan Aidy would get the win for Vandalia, allowing five runs on seven hits in three innings, while striking out six. Sidney Herman would take the loss, allowing nine runs (two earned) on five hits and three walks. Lincolnwood would commit seven errors in the game.
Maggie McClelland would lead Lincolnwood at the plate with a 2-for-4 day as she also drove in a run for the Lancers. Madison Ferguson and Morgan Aidy both had three hits for Vandalia, while Laura Miller added two.
On Tuesday, March 19, Lincolnwood traveled to Athens, where the Warriors scored a 13-1 win on their home field.
Ashlyn Weatherford would hold the Lady Lancers to three hits in the five-inning game, striking out two and giving up one run in the top of the fifth.
The solo run came from one of Lincolnwood's three hits as Savannah Bowman parked one over the center field fence to break up the shutout. The Lancers' two other hits came from Sidney Glick, who singled in the third inning and the fifth inning.
The Warriors had 13 hits in the game, including a pair of home runs from Cheyenne Anderson and scored two runs in the second and three in the third before blowing open the game with eight runs in the fourth.
Lincolnwood will be back on the road on Thursday, March 21, when they take on the Pretzels of New Berlin, followed by another road trip on Saturday, March 23, this time to Riverton, with an 11 a.m. first pitch.
