With eight seniors playing in their final home softball game Monday afternoon, the field was lined with posters, balloons and flowers. E-W played solid and came out on top, winning 11-0 in five innings.

Before the game, each senior accompanied by family was honored with a speech from Coach Mike Venable and a gift from their teammates. Honored seniors were: Cassady Orstad-catcher, Brooklynn Bailey-3rd baseman, Katelynn Lafferty-pitcher, Mckenzie Brendemuhl-pitcher, Kaylie Whitmore- left fielder, Sydney Forseth-center fielder, Lauren Nguyen-second baseman, and Ana Matulovich- first baseman.

With the duo of Mckenzie Brendemuhl in the circle and Cassady Orstad behind the plate, the EW defense saw only 14 at bats and Brendemuhl struck out 6.
