Huskies fall at UHS

FAIRMONT — After a big win a day earlier over Lincoln, North Marion’s softball team failed to keep the momentum going on Tuesday in a 8-0 road loss at University.

The Huskies, now 19-11 on the season, were held to just three hits on the afternoon.

“We had a letdown. You can say we were flat,” North coach Brad Harker said. “Sooner or later, you’re going to want to flip the switch and it ain’t going to come back on.”

North got hits — all singles — from Paige Efaw, Shelby King and Chelsi Latocha.

The Huskies had several scoring chances early in the contest, including putting runners on second and third base with no outs in the top of the first inning, but weren’t able to get a run across.

Latocha also started in the circle and tossed a complete game, but the Huskies were tagged for 13 hits.

North is back in action today when it visits Lewis County.

Baseball

Bears topple Buckhannon

Fairmont Senior’s baseball team rolled to a 20-11 win at Buckhannon-Upshur on Tuesday night.

The Polar Bears rolled up 17 hits off five Bucs’ pitchers and erased a 2-0 early-inning deficit with 13 runs in the top of the third.

Austin Norman again led FSHS offensively, going 4 for 5 on the day.

Bailey Mohr got the victory on the mound, and Matt Robbins closed the game out for the Bears.

No other details were available at press time.

Fairmont Senior (14-5, 9-0, in Big 10) visits Preston today.

  • University hands Huskies first loss; East edges Elkins

    The mercy rule has been a familiar part of North Marion’s softball season.
    Through the first seven games, the Huskies regularly pounded their opponents with stingy defense, sharp pitching and timely hitting. Rarely did a game go all seven innings for the previously undefeated team.

  • North Marion’s rally falls short

    North Marion had all the pieces in place for a thrilling come-from-behind victory Saturday afternoon.
    The four runs in the bottom of the seventh. The tying runner on third and the Huskies’ fastest player on second. Even the clear-blue sky on the mid-70s afternoon was the perfect stage for a comeback.

    You always hear the phrase “pass the torch.”
