Morris softball outlasts Sandwich

MORRIS — The Morris softball team scored an 8-6 win over Sandwich on Tuesday, improving to 4-3 on the season.

Claire Gugerty slammed a home run and had two RBIs to help power the Morris offense Ashley Phelps (3 RBIs), Kennedy Dransfeldt (RBI), Olivia Schultz, Abbey Moore, Megan Gerischer (RBI), Maddy Hughes, and Paige Thorson each had a hit. Gigi Corban picked up the win, striking out nine in the process. 

"We played a bit sloppy, and it almost cost us the game," Morris coach Jen Bamonte said. "However, we were able to come together as a team when it mattered. We got big hits today when we needed them.

"Gigi was able to shake off some mistakes behind her and help herself when she needed to. I am very proud that we never give up."
