RSM tops South O’Brien
REMSEN — Remsen St. Mary’s opened the season with a War Eagle Conference sweep of South O’Brien on Monday.
The RSM softball team put the go-ahead runs across in the sixth inning and eighth grade pitcher Marina Cronin put the Wolverines down in order in the top of the seventh to secure the complete game 3-2 win for the team. Cronin finished with three strikeouts including the final two outs of the game.
The RSM eighth grade class carried much of the load as along with Cronin’s pitching performance, three of the team’s four hits came from eighth graders. Mya Bunkers had a pair of hits and Carmindee Ricke added another as those two picked up the RBIs in the game. Bunkers’ double put the Hawks in front 1-0 in the third, but the Wolverines answered with the next two runs including the go-ahead run on an error in the sixth. The Hawks tied the game in the bottom of the frame with a bases loaded walk to Ricke and Gracyn Schroeder scored the go-ahead run for the Hawks on a passed ball.
The Class 1A No. 2 RSM baseball team started the season with a 10-6 win over South O’Brien.
The Hawks got just five hits, but capitalized on nine free passes in the contest. One of the hits was a home run for Spencer Schorg who went 2-for-4 with 2 RBI and three runs scored. Blaine Harpenau had the other multi-hit game with a 2-for-3 night with a walk and 1 RBI.
Jaxon Bunkers reached three times via walk as he got the win on the mound, striking out five in two innings. Isaiah Gerrietts, Spencer Schorg, Brayden Ricke and Noah Schroeder also took the mound for the Hawks.
RSM has won 11 straight against South O’Brien and have scored in double digits in eight of those games.
Remsen St. Mary’s will host Hinton in conference action Wednesday.
