Fort Calhoun Softball

Fort Calhoun's Maddie Reed pitches against Arlington on Saturday at the Blair Youth Sports Complex.

Infielder Kenzie Hansen logged the Fort Calhoun softball team's lone hit Saturday against Class C1 No. 10 Arlington.

Despite what amounted to an 0-3 outing at the Blair Invitational, the Pioneers picked it up offensively from that 12-0 loss to the Eagles on. They logged six hits in a 9-2 loss to Omaha Mercy and six more during a 14-3 loss to Bellevue West.

Against Mercy, Maddie Reed notched two hits, including a double. She added an RBI, while Katie Barta did the same. Bella Benoit, Morgan Therkildsen and Hansen also notched hits in a game Fort Calhoun trailed just 4-2 going into the sixth inning.

Therkildsen then added an RBI against Bellevue West in the Pioneers' tournament finale. Lucy Hubbard added her own Rbi, while Reed had two hits.

Gina Namuth and Sophia Thomas also had base hits against the Thunderbirds.

Fort Calhoun is 0-8 through its first eight games of the 2020 season.
