Van-Far’s Jayda Borgmeyer follows through on her swing after hitting a double against Silex.

Jayda Borgmeyer hit a home run in two straight games to help the Lady Indians pick up a pair big wins. Van-Far outscored their two opponents, 19-1.
“Jayda Borgmeyer had a huge week this week hitting a home run in each game,” said Van-Far head coach Kelly Orf.
Last Tuesday at home against Silex, the Lady Indians scored their first run in the bottom of the second inning when Borgmeyer scored on Alexis DeTienne’s RBI single.
In the fourth inning, Borgmeyer’s sacrifice fly scored Jayle Jennings for one run.
Jordan Garner then scored the third run on Carleigh Phillips’ RBI bunt single.
After Silex scored their first run in the top of the sixth, Borgmeyer finished the scoring with a solo home run.
Borgmeyer finished with two hits, two RBIs, and two runs scored, DeTienne and Phillips each had one RBI, while both Garner and Jennings scored one run.
Jennings earned the win on the mound after tossing seven innings allowing no earned runs on three hits while striking out five.
Crushing Hermann
The Lady Indians scored 11 runs in the first inning before beating Hermann 15-0 in a three inning game.
Jennings hit a two-run home run and Borgmeyer scored on Gina Clausen’s ground out early in the first.
Makayla McAfee had a two-RBI double, Phillips scored on Garner’s RBI double, and Borgmeyer added a two-run home run of her own.
Borgmeyer scored the final run in the third inning on Alex Connaway’s RBI single.
Jennings finished the game with two RBIs and three runs scored while Borgmeyer tallied three hits, two RBIs, and three runs scored.
Clausen had two RBIs; both McAfee and Garner added two RBIs and two runs scored; Mallory Williams and Reaghan Case scored one run; Phillips had two runs scored; Connaway had one RBI; and Alivia Graddy had one run scored and one RBI.
Jennings earned the win on the mound after tossing a one-hit shutout with four strikeouts.
“Jayle Jennings pitched outstanding in both games this week as well along with adding a home run against Hermann,” Orf said.
“She only gave up three hits to Silex and one hit against Hermann, giving her a second shutout this season. Defensively, we looked pretty good this past week. Finally, in our game against Hermann, we really came out of our slump offensively and really started hitting the ball well as an entire team. The girls have been working extremely hard in practice to improve at the plate and I am hoping the way we executed against Hermann is what we start seeing throughout the rest of the regular season and into the postseason.”
