Top-ranked Wayland softball claims another tourney title
The Wayland softball team flexed its collective muscles in the championship game of the Centreville Invitational on Saturday, May 10.
On the strength of four home runs, the Wildcats powered their way to an 8-0 lead en route to the 10-4 win over Gull Lake to capture their third tournament title in three weeks.
Freshman Bethany Teunissen led the power surge for Wayland, which is ranked first in Division 2 with a 22-1 record. She hit two of the homers and drove in three runs, giving her four long balls for the season.
“Bethany’s really doing a great job for us,” said Wayland coach Cheri Ritz, whose team defeated Sturgis 4-1 in the semifinals. “And the thing is we’re facing some good pitching, so earning everything she gets.”
