The Eagles softball team celebrates a home run hit by Dani Post last week on Senior Night.

Dani Post was hit by a pitch in the 11th inning and scored when the Indians left fielder made an error on Ashley Osborne’s hit to the outfield. Osborne pitched the entire game and got the win. Osborne and catcher Kate Ponder led the offense with a pair of hits. The Eagles defeated Pilot Grove 6-3 with Camryn Schaller going the distrance and striking out 15 batters. Post led the offensive effort with a pair of hits.

The Eagles lost a pair of games last week by 10-run margins, falling to Jefferson City and Blair Oaks on Senior Night.
