No. 15 (1A) Sigourney polishes off SICL win over English Valleys

SIGOURNEY ­— The Sigourney softball team made quick work of its first game to be stopped in the middle due to rain and picked up several days later. The 15th-ranked (1A) Savages took care of their 17th South Iowa Cedar League victory on Wednesday, finishing off a five-inning 10-0 shutout of English Valleys.

Jordan Carter finished off a one-hit shutout of the Bears that included four strikeouts while several Sigourney stars stepped up to contribute to the “two-day” win. Carter and Becca Ohland each had two hits with Ohland scoring twice while Maddi Denny drove in three runs and scored two more in the win.

“Picking it up in the middle of an inning was unusual for our girls, but we tried to keep things the same going in,” Sigourney head coach Shelly Striegle said. “The girls picked it right back up where they left off and kept things rolling.”

Rain played tricks on Sigourney’s schedule one more time this regular season Tuesday as a scheduled SICL matchup with BGM was called off due to nasty weather in the area. The 15th-ranked Savages (19-5, 17-2) will try to make up that contest Friday before heading into the postseason to host a Class 1A regional second round contest on Wednesday.
