Owls take opener
The Seymour softball team had to play their originally scheduled home game at Bedford North Lawrence on Tuesday night, but that was in the back of the Owls’ minds.
The Owls built a 10-2 lead in five innings, and hung on as they came out with a 11-5 victory in their season-opener.
Offensively, the Owls came out aggressively behind the plate — something that coach Brian Personett had addressed during the winter months.
In the first inning, the Owls bats were hot as they amassed a 3-0 lead.
Following a single scored run in the second, the Owls added another three runs in the third and fourth to take a 10-0 lead.
The Stars scored three runs in the seventh inning, but it wasn’t enough for a comeback.
Senior Emily Bobb led the Owls hitting-unit with two singles, a double and triple.
Lo Schmidt acted as the winning pitcher for the Owls throwing one strikeout, one hit and two walks in four innings.
With the softball diamond at Seymour still under renovation, the Owls (1-0) will host Edinburgh at Kasting Park in Seymour on Thursday.
