Paige Gust tossed a four-hit shutout and Laken Detwiler drilled a three-run double as Lakeland routed Fremont, 12-0 in NECC softball last Thursday.
Gust struckout two and walked one en route to her first-ever shutout win. Gust helped her own cause by slamming a solo home run.
Karissa Troyer and Kristen Wiese each delivered RBI doubles for the Lady Lakers. Abby Bustos lined an RBI single.
The news was not as good for the Lady Lakers the following night against NECC leader Eastside. Led by the hitting and pitching of Ashton Miller, and aided by seven Lakeland errors, the visiting Lady Blazers cruised to a 12-1 victory.
Troyer’s fifth-inning single drove in Madison Campbell with the lone Lakeland run.
The split left the Lady Lakers with a 5-3 NECC record.
