Blue Jay Roundup: JHS softball sweeps Wolves

Jamestown High School softball produced 43 runs and 34 hits Friday, April 12, as the Blue Jays defeated Watford City in 5 innings by scores of 19-2 and 24-4 at the Western Star Complex in Watford City. The Blue Jays improved to 3-1 on the season, while the Wolves are 0-6.

"The girls did a good job of paying attention in the on-deck circle and made good contact today," said Jamestown coach Marissa Drenth.

Ella Roaldson went 7-for-10 with three home runs and 14 RBIs, while hitting for the cycle in game 2. McKenna Jackson went 4-for-8 with a double, four RBIs and four runs scored. Jenna Fischer recorded a 5-for-9 afternoon with a double, triple, four RBIs and three runs scored.

"They all do a good job of getting quality cuts in practice and it translated into the game," Drenth said. "They knew what they were looking for and were being patient."

Payton Gall earned the victory in game 1 after limiting the Wolves to two runs and three hits. Katie Falk took the ball in game 2 and held Watford City to four runs (two unearned) and five hits.

"Payton was really efficient. She threw 74% for strikes and that was good to see from her early and often," Drenth said. "It was good to get Katie in the game. She did a good job start to finish and didn't let the moment be too big."

Jamestown travels roughly 50 miles North to Williston today for a doubleheader starting at 2 p.m. The Coyotes (0-2) lost to Bismarck Century 10-0 and 12-1 back on April 5.

"We always go in one game at a time, even if we have a doubleheader," Drenth said. "Hopefully we come out and play as well as we did today, clean up what we needed to and get on a roll early."
