The Van-Far Lady Indians softball team moved their record back to .500 last week after winning their first EMO Conference game of the season in convincing fashion.
After scoring 17 runs in the fourth inning, the Lady Indians sealed a 24-5 win over Wellsville-Middletown to end a two game losing streak.
Van-Far’s offense had 22 hits in the win while the defense committed two errors.
“We still aren’t playing the level of defense we should be, but I believe the girls are starting to get use to their new positions and things will pick up,” said Van-Far head coach Kelly Borchert. “Our hitting is starting to come alive as well.”
Alivia Graddy went 4-for-4 with four RBIs and two runs scored while Jayle Jennings added three hits, four RBIs, and three runs scored.
Jordan Garner tallied three hits, four RBIs, and three runs scored; Devyn Keller hit a home run and had three hits, two RBIs, and three runs scored; Colby Wright-Walton went 3-for-3 with three RBIs and she scored three runs; Haley Baskett added two RBIs and three runs scored; Alyse Jensen had two RBIs and one run scored; Makayla McAfee had two runs scored; Mallory Williams added one RBI and one run scored; while Rebecca Moore scored one run.
Keller tossed 2 1/3 innings in the win and allowed three earned runs and four hits with two strikeouts and two walks.

Wright-Walton tossed one inning of shut out ball and allowed just two hits. She also had one strikeout.
