Pitching and defense carried the day for the St. Marys softball team in its 6-1 win over Fort Recovery on Monday at K.C. Geiger Park.
St. Marys pitcher Lexi Roop dominated Fort Recovery, striking out 11 batters.
“She hit her spots,” St. Marys head coach Sue Grothause said. “Her curveball is really working well. She knew she wasn’t on, but sometimes you aren’t on and you have to stay positive and push through it.”
Josh Fleagle, a homeschool student from rural St. Marys who has swam YMCA, club and now USA Swimming, will compete at the YMCA Nationals in Greensboro, North Carolina, next week, where he will be competing in seven events over just a few days.
Fleagle will defend his 100 meter freestyle national title along with swimming in six other events packed into the week.
On April 2-5, Fleagle will swim in four individual events and three relay events with teammates and local swimmers Jared Fleagle, Jared Deubler, Matt Feltz, Matt Hollman and Peyton Jones.
