The Merrill Varsity Bluejays Softball Team ran into a buzz saw at the Merrill Area Recreation Complex (MARC) versus DC Everest on Thursday night, May 9, 2024, which was also Senior Night for Merrill. Two DC Everest pitchers, Mara Meverden and Addison Kluck, combined for a six-inning no hitter, while striking out 13 Merrill batters. The Evergreens didn’t allow a runner to reach base, defeating the Bluejays 10-0.
“It was a tough game for us. They had strong pitching and we tried not to play into their strengths. It was difficult to lay off those rise balls, so we are trying to work on pitch selection and playing to our strengths,” said Head Coach Ali Krohn. “We will continue to work on pitch selection as we head into our final week and on to the post season.”
Box Score:
DC Everest 10 @ Merrill 0
