East girls rallied back multiple times to squeak out a 14-12 win against the Nicolet Knights on a beautiful Tuesday afternoon.
Elise Sturn gets the no decision throwing 4 and 1/3 innings. Sturn gave up nine runs on five hits, walked five and struck out two. Abbey Nettesheim came in relief with one out in the 5th. In 2 and 2/3 innings she earns the win with giving up three runs on seven hits while walking three and striking out one.
Offensively the Suns hitting was contagious in both the 4th and the 6th inning. Abby Wimmer started the five run rally in the 4th with a leadoff single. Wimmer went 3-4 on the day with a triple. In the 6th inning, every batter in the lineup found their way on base. The 6th inning highlight was a leadoff walk by Megan Lemke followed by a two-run laser over the centerfield fence by 5’2″ Elise Sturn. Sturn finished the day 2-3 with a double off the outfield fence and a home run. She racked up 4 RBIs on the day.
The Suns are scheduled to play on Thursday April 25 vs. WB West at 4:30. Due to weather forecasts the game is looking to be moved to Wednesday April 24th at 4:30. The switch is still to be determined.
