Tri-County Area Prep Softball Review & Preview

The Eleva-Strum High School Softball Team secured its best season in program history this past Tuesday, May 14 with a doubleheader sweep of Augusta at Augusta.

The Cardinals closed their regular season with a 9-8 overall record, 6-7 in the Large Dairyland Conference. Their record also propelled them to one of their highest seeds in the WIAA Regional Tournament at No. 5 as they travel to No. 4 seeded Mondovi (13-9) next Tuesday, May 21 for a semifinal match-up beginning at 5 p.m. E-S also won at Whitehall 11-1 last week Thursday, May 9 and just missed downing conference champion Melrose-Mindoro last week Tuesday, May 7 in a close 1-0 loss at home. And the best news is the Redbirds have just one senior on the roster in outfielder Emma Brown.

The doubleheader sweep by E-S blunted the late momentum showed by the Beavers (6-13 overall, 4-9 in the Large Dairyland). AHS also knocked off Whitehall on Monday, May 13 by an 8-2 score and downed Eau Claire Immanuel Lutheran 3-2 last week Thursday, May 9 on Senior Day for their young team's two lone seniors Olivia Meyer and Neveah Bergman. They also lost last week Tuesday, May 7 at Cochrane-Fountain City 11-1. The Beavers went 6-7 after losing their first six games and can add to their win total today as they host No. 10 seeded Eau Claire Regis (2-18) in the first round of a WIAA Division 4 regional tournament match-up at 5 p.m.. Augusta is the No. 7 seed.

No. 2 ranked Fall Creek (23-2 overall) took their first loss to a Wisconsin team this season as they fell 2-1 to Medford last weekend in the Thorp-Gilman Softball SlamFest. On the same day they beat Blair-Taylor 10-0 in five innings. The Crickets bounced back from the Medford loss to wallop Elk Mound on Tuesday, May 14 at home 16-1. The Crickets face Prescott (15-7) today in their final regular season contest in Fall Creek and await the winner of today's WIAA D-4 regional tournament first round contest between Glenwood City (5-12) and Spring Valley (4-14) in the semifinals at home next Tuesday, May 21 with the first pitch at 5 p.m. Also last week, the Crickets put the finishing touches on their perfect season in the Western Cloverbelt Conference by sweeping Bloomer at home in a doubleheader on Tuesday, May 7 by scores of 7-1 and 16-2, beating Eau Claire Regis 13-0, also at home on Thursday May 9 then traveling right afterwards the 16 miles to Osseo to beat the Thunder at Stoddard Park 16-0. During the week, FC pitcher junior Grace Herrem threw a perfect game against Regis with 13 strikeouts in five innings while senior Sophie Johnson, one of five seniors on the team along with Averie Barka, Elena Raffensperger, Maissy Nall and Ava Haskins honored before the Regis ballgame, hit a school record 10th home run in a single season.

Osseo-Fairchild (6-14, 4-10) finally got their doubleheader with Eau Claire Regis in the books Tuesday, May 14 after several postponements due to weather. The Thunder won the completion game against the Ramblers (before it was suspended they led 6-0) by a 21-4 score in five innings but lost the second game 15-10, just Regis' second win this season. The Thunder play their final home game this season at Stoddard Park for seniors Hanna Giacomino, Halle Colby, Chole Gunderson, Taryen Kittelson, Tymeka Eisberner and Addisyn Koxlien,as they host Independence/Gilmanton in a first round, WIAA D-4 regional playoff contest beginning at 5 p.m. O-F did get a win over Stanley-Boyd last week Thursday, May 9 at home by a 5-3 score before playing Fall Creek.
