Monarchs and Cardinal girls

Class 3A sixth-ranked Treynor edged Denison-Schleswig by a 2-1 final in nonconference softball action on Wednesday night at Treynor.

The loss snapped a nine-game win streak for D-S, which fell to 22-12 overall. Treynor, on the other hand, improved to 26-2 overall with the one-run triumph.

Due to lightning, the teams went to the dugout with Treynor holding a 2-1 lead and Paige Armijo up to bat for the Monarchs with one out in the top of the sixth inning.

After a stoppage of play for an hour and a half, the game reverted back to the fifth inning with Treynor up 2-1, as the game was called with the Cardinals picking up the win.

Treynor went up 2-0, as the Cardinals scored single runs in the first and third innings.

D-S scored its lone run in the top of the fourth, as Sarah Heilesen singled and eventually scored on a delayed steal to home plate.

Treynor pitcher Sydni Huisman went the distance, as she gave up just three with 14 strikeouts and no walks for the win in an 84-pitch performance.

The Cardinals managed only three hits off D-S hurler Heilesen, who allowed the two runs with six strikeouts and two walks.

Heilesen went 1-for-2 with her team’s lone run and three stolen bases.

Alex Mohr went 1-for-2 with two stolen bases and Kailey Pick was 1-for-2 as well for the Monarchs.

"It was a good high school softball game between two pretty good teams. The Huisman girl is the real deal and she throws hard," commented Denison-Schleswig coach Kevin Dau.

"She was by far the fastest pitcher we’ve faced all year and probably one of the best in western Iowa," he added.

"We didn’t have a lot of scoring opportunities, but we a couple. We tried a suicide squeeze with Mohr on third and Raegan Andersen at the plate."

"The bunt went right to Huisman. She flipped it to her catcher and Mohr was called out on a bang-bang play," Dau said.

"Treynor has a nice team. It was good for our girls to face a pitcher and team like that down the stretch. It was a good competition that we’ll take going into postseason play," Dau remarked.
