The Osseo softball team opened the 2014 season with two wins last week.
The Orioles defeated visiting Coon Rapids 5-2 April 14. Senior catcher Ashley Sis highlighted Osseo’s three-run third inning when she blasted a two-run homer to put Osseo up 3-0. Junior pitcher Courtney Calkins had a solid outing scattering seven hits and tallying seven strikeouts. She allowed single runs in the fourth and sixth innings. Allison Tullberg chipped in two hits in the win.
Osseo battled through a tough offensive performance to score a 3-1 home win over the Cooper Hawks April 15. The Orioles scored single runs in the second, third and sixth innings and three runs were enough for Calkins, who threw another solid game. The Orioles manufactured three runs on eight hits. Two hits by Calkins, Faith Lovcik, Caroline Meyers, and key bunts from Kelli Auer and Allison Tullberg, led the way.
The Orioles next host Andover Thursday, April 24, and visit Blaine Friday, April 25.
