MOUNT VERNON — The Mount Vernon High School softball team extracted a little revenge on Monday evening against the visiting Big Walnut Golden Eagles.
Celebrating Senior Day, the Yellow Jackets pounded out 11 hits and scored 10 times in a 10-0 defeat of the Eagles in Ohio Capital Conference Capital Division play. The win avenges an earlier 4-0 loss to the Eagles (10-12).
“I think we were a lot more aggressive with the bats, and we made a lot of solid contact,” said Mount Vernon (14-4, 10-3 OCC Capital) coach Carisa Frysinger. “I think we were a lot more confident than we have been. Kylee (Marcum) pitched a good game, and we also had some really good defense.
“This was Senior Night, and it is Big Walnut. They upset us last year and in our first game this year, and these girls wanted to take it to them.”
“This feels really good,” said Mount Vernon senior Natalie Scott. “We needed it.”
