Lady Jays Play Boone Central Tournament

by Angelica Volquardsen


The Lady Jays played against Polk County, Boone Central Newman Grove, and Madison in the Boone Central softball tournament Saturday, September 1. The Lady Jays went 1-2.

Pierce’s first game was against Polk County, and the Lady Jays came up short 11-13. In the first inning, there were no runs scored on either team. During the second inning, the Lady Jays scored one run but allowed Polk County four. In the third inning, the Lady Jays matched Polk County as both scored three runs. In the fourth inning, the Lady Jays outscored Polk County 4-2 but still remained behind by one. During the fifth inning, the Lady Jays managed three runs to pull ahead but allowed Polk County four, ending the game with a score of 11-13 with a loss for the Lady Jays.

“The first game we hit the ball really well, but had a few too many errors on defense,” said coach Marika VonSeggern. “Our bats kept us in the first game, even though we were making a lot of errors.”

Against Polk County, Rose Graham, Elizabeth Hammer, and Brianna Aguilera all had one hit, and Kaycie Druyor and Ashton Oestreich each had two hits. Graham had three RBI’s; Druyor, Kaylee Dvorak, and Oestreich all had two; and Aguilera had one. Kiley Bierman, Dvorak, and Oestreich all had three putouts; Graham had two; and Mikala Stone, Hammer, Aguilera, and Druyor each had one. Hammer and Aguilera each had three assists on defense, and Dvorak had one. Aguilera also threw two strikeouts.

The Lady Jays’ second game was against Boone Central Newman Grove, and the Lady Jays went down with a score of 3-14. Things looked positive for the Lady Jays in the first inning, as they scored three runs while holding BCNG to zero, but the Cardinals picked up their momentum after that and didn’t allow Pierce to score any more runs but put away 14 of their own before the game ended in the fourth inning.

Coach VonSeggern said of the BCNG game that,”we started off really well and on top with three runs, but pitching wise we began to struggle. Our bats startest us off on the right foot, but then we struggled to get anything else going.”

Against BCNG, Biermann, Graham, and Druyor all had one hit. Beirmann had two RBI’s, and Graham had one. Dvorak had four putouts, Bierman had three, Aguilera had two, and Hammer had one. Aguilera had three assists on defense, and Druyor had one.

The Lady Jays won their third game against Madison with a score of 12-1. In the first, second and third innings, the Lady Jays held Madison scoreless while scoring nine runs of their own. In the fourth inning, the Lady Jays put away three more runs while letting Madison score only one to end the game by run rule with a score of 12-1.

“The last game, the girls played amazing offensively and defensively,” said VonSeggern. “We kept our errors low, we hit really well, and Brianna Aguilera pitched a great game. We hit extremely well and started off on top and just kept pushing.”

Against Madison, Dvorak had two hits, and Bierman, Graham, Hammer, Aguilera, and Druyor each had one. Dvorak had three RBIs; Bierman and Aguilera each had two; and Graham, Magdalena Dale, Druyor, and Oestreich all had one. Hammer had four putouts, Dvorak had three, Bierman and Aguilera each had two, and Oestreich had one. Aguilera had three assists on defense, and Hammer had one. Aguilera threw one strikeout.

Overall, coach VonSeggern said, “We played really well this tournament. Our normal pitcher is out with an injury, so a lot of the girls were playing different positions. Our offensive game all day was really our strong point. For the next game, we will continue to work on our batting. Even if we struggle defensively, our bats can keep us in games. We will also continue to work on fielding. With maybe not having our main pitcher be able to pitch, the girls will have to get used to new positions.”

The Lady Jays’ next game will be on Wednesday, September 6, at Madison.

I have not seen us bat like we did that night. I knew we were capable of being very good offensively, but we had yet to show up during a game. The girls played extremely well, and I couldn't be prouder.”
