Cedarville softball wins first game in four years — Sports Digest: March 28, 2023


CEDARVILLE — The Cedarville softball team won its first game in nearly four years with a 10-7 victory against Catholic Central at home on Monday.

The Indians last won a game on May 6, 2019. The victory stopped an 18-game losing streak which spanned from the final game of the 2019 season, was prolonged due to the 2020 COVID-19 cancellation of all spring sports and the team not returning in 2021, and coming back in 2022 but losing all 17 games it played.

Cedarville had eight freshman make up the 11 players who took to the diamond in the win. Those new players produced 10 of the team’s 14 hits, along with 5 runs batted in, eight runs scored, two doubles and five sacrifices. It wasn’t all first-year players getting it done, as junior Ryleigh Burnett went 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles, two RBI and three runs.

Joscelyn Evans, one of the freshman, pitched a complete game and allowed eight hits while striking out eight and walking two. She also had three of the RBI at the plate.

The Indians scored seven runs in the first two innings and led by seven heading into the final frame before halting the Irish’s last ditch comeback attempt and begin the year 1-0.
