Busy week concludes for Decorah sb

By Becky Walz,

Things are clicking for the Decorah softball team (8-5, 5-2 NEIC) as the Vikes picked three wins, getting edged by Crestwood in the other.

Wednesday twinbill
The Vikes took two games from Waukon (6-8, 0-6 NEIC) on the road Wednesday, 21-1 and 11-0.
Decorah’s offense was the story of the night as the Vikes blasted 16 hits through five innings to get the early victory. Decorah scored four in the first and third frames, two in the fourth and plated 11 in the fifth.
Nearly everyone in the line-up had a hit in game one. The highlights include Fiona Buresh going 3-for-5 with a home run and two RBI on the night. Ella Kittelson and Mya Numedahl each had extra-base hits, with Numedahl driving in three runs. Avery Shelton had a strong performance on the mound, going five innings, allowing four hits and striking out seven.
The nightcap also belonged to the Vikes with Decorah connecting for nine hits. Shelton and Isabel Ihde smacked out doubles, while Kittelson rapped out three singles. Emma Johnson was in the pitcher’s circle for the five innings, issuing two walks and striking out six.
