Viking Invitational: April 21, 2018
The Lady Vikings drew the ladies from Montabella to kick off the 2018 Viking Invitational. The Vikings built up a 10-1 lead going into the bottom of the 4th inning, but with the help of 4 Viking errors Montabella put up a seven spot and made a game of it. The Viking hitting attack was led by junior Kristin Terwilliger (3 for 4, 2 RBI) and freshman Taylor Hacker (2 for 3, 4 RBI). For the second game in a row the Vikings put up double digits (13) in stolen bases led by senior Bree Kubasczyk with 4 and senior Val McMaster with 3.
Freshman Taylor Hacker went the distance on the mound to gain the victory scattering 7 hits and 6 base on balls and 4 strikeouts over five innings. She gave up 9 runs with 7 being earned. Montabella was led by center fielder A Chaney with a 2 for 4 day and 3 RBI to go with it.
With the win the Lady Vikes will advance to the championship game later in the day.
