The 8th grade softball Lady Dawgs fell behind early and couldn't quite come back enough in an 8-5 loss to Plainfield.
East lost despite out-hitting Plainfield ten to seven. Maddie Starnes, Josie Day, and Brynn Davis all collected multiple hits in the game. However, the Dawgs left the bases loaded at the conclusion of three innings. Emma McDivitt was finally able to cash in some loaded base RBI’s in the 7th inning.
Starnes started on the mound, and Katelyn Wise threw four innings out of the bullpen for a combined total of 9 strike outs.
The ladies will hit the dirt in hopes for a victory on Monday vs. Zionsville at home.
