FAIRBANKS, AK-Last night in the Interior the first softball action of the season started at Ryan Middle School. The Lathrop Malemutes were in a non-conference double header with the Eielson Ravens. In the second game the Ravens had some control issues walking a number of Lathrop batters. Still getting the rust off I guess but Lathrop was sharp. The Malemutes exploded with a seven third inning.
Salena Maxwell hit a double that brought in two runners for Lathrop. Then a few batters latter Tina Persinger hit a two run rbi single. Kasey Duffield closed it out with her pitching like her sister Kimmy did in the first game. The Duffield sisters had 10 strikeouts in the double header.
Lathrop wins both games 10-0 and are 7-0 this season.
