Sarah Wright led the hit parade with a home run, two singles, three runs and three RBI.
Scott Smith added a single, double, two runs and two RBI; while Veronica Crownover singled, doubled and drove in two.

Wells was the winning pitcher, tossing a three-hitter.
“We came out swinging today and had a very good day at the plate,” coach Kevin McGranahan said. “We hit it hard all day, and the ones that didn’t fall in found leather. We hit our fair share right at them, but we kept hitting anyway.
