Titans Use Long Ball To Stop Southern 8-3

The 2019 Norris Titans softball team got their season started playing a triangular with Wymore Southern and Beatrice on August 22 at Beatrice's Hannibal Park.  Norris opened play against the Raiders of Southern High School and came away with a 8-3 victory. Southern took an early 1-0 lead in the 1st inning, but NHS' Olivia Ozenbaugh tied the contest in the bottom of the inning with an RBI single.  The Raiders forged ahead again in the next inning for a 2-1 margin.  The 3rd frame saw Norris explode for 6 runs to control the game when Molly VanderHamm slammed a 2 run homer and Ozenbaugh followed with a blast of her own. Delaney White added a round tripper in the 5th to complete the Titans' scoring at 8-3. Reliever Alexis Wiggins silenced the Southern bats with a solid effort and earned the win in the circle for Norris. VanderHamm, Ozenbaugh, and Jerica German paced the Titans 10 hit attack with 2 hits apiece.
