Viking Softball Inches Past Mayville
(Jake McNeal/Times-Record) Valley City State sophomore utility Cejay Hilhorst dodges a tag Wednesday on her approach to second base
Viking junior catcher/outfielder Savannah McMillinâ€™s walk-off single late Wednesday helped Valley City State sweep Mayville State, 3-1 and 2-1, in a North Star doubleheader at Shelly Ellig Field.
â€śWe had to learn to be patiently aggressive â€” that was the word of the day,â€ť Viking senior third base Liz Hall Sewell said. â€śWe needed to play solid defense, and once we got on base we came through. For two freshman pitchers to come in, it really showed their mound presence.â€ť
Freshman right-handers Ashley Metcalf and Morgan Nalley picked up complete-game wins.
Valley City State improves to 2-2 in the North Star standings and 13-15 overall.
Thursdayâ€™s games at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minn. have been cancelled, so the Vikings will play a 2 p.m.-and-4 p.m. conference doubleheader on Saturday and a 1 p.m.-and-3 p.m. conference back-to-back Sunday at Presentation College in Aberdeen, S.D.
