The Miami Trace Lady Panthers varsity softball team had a terrific battle with the defending South Central Ohio League champions Clinton-Massie Monday, April 10 at C-M High School.
The game was a real pitcher’s dual between Miami Trace sophomore Olivia Wolffe and Massie sophomore Taylor Florea.
“Olivia pitched a great game for us,” Miami Trace head coach Joe Henry said. “She was throwing with power and hitting her spots all night. She is getting better every time she gets on the mound, with her pitching and leadership.”
Wolffe worked nine innings with five hits, no walks, eight strikeouts and three runs (two earned).
Florea walked five and struck out eight.
There was no score through six complete innings.
Miami Trace scored in the top of the seventh, only to have Massie tie the game in their turn at bat.
The eighth inning was scoreless, with Miami Trace scoring one run in the top of the ninth.
However, Massie scored two in the bottom of the ninth to remain undefeated overall on the season.
“Jessica Camp had another great night of hitting, going 3 for 3 and driving in two runs,” Henry said.
Hailey Clayborn hit a solo home run for Massie in the bottom of the seventh.
She later drove in the winning run in the ninth.
“Trace’s pitcher did an excellent job,” Clinton-Massie head coach Anthony Lauer told the Wilmington News Journal.
