Storm Lake JV team triumphs

The Trojans led 3-2 when they scored two runs in the top of the seventh to secure the win. McDonough hit her home run in that frame.
Halley Cranston drove in two runs for Alta. Casi Flink had two hits and scored a run. Cranston, Jamie Snyder, Brooke Sliefert and Brooke Ryherd each had a hit.
