Olympians upset Stars
BEDFORD — Columbus East scored a major upset Friday night, going on the road and shocking Class 4A No. 5 Bedford North Lawrence 8-2.
“We pretty much started hitting when we got off the bus,” East coach Rusty Brummett said. “We scored three runs in the first inning, and that set the tone for the ballgame, and we did a good job of not letting up.”
Kaitlin Wagner went 3 for 5 with a double, and Mady Foster went 3 for 5 for the Olympians (10-7). Kamryn Cantu went 2 for 4
Brooke Valles threw a four-hitter against the Stars (15-2). She struck out seven and walked two.
“It’s a big win for the program,” East coach Rusty Brummett said. “Brooke had a nice game. She was pitching out front a lot, and when you get out in front, you can use all of your pitches and keep them off balance.”
