Warrensburg 13,

North Warren 5

CHESTERTOWN -- Both North Warren and Warrensburg out on a slugging show that ended up with a Warrensburg victory.

Burgher Pitcher Rachel Simkins, a Senior, tallied two doubles and classmate Kirsten Bentham recorded a curious trio of base hits: a single, double and triple for her team's tally of 12 hits.

For North Warren, Senior Chelsey Crossman hit a double, triple and two singles, Junior Senior Morgan Tennyson blasted a homer and a single, and classmate Kelsey Hamblin hit both a triple and a single.

Senior Jenna Remington added two singles and a triple to the team's total of 14 hits.
