Beulah ends season at regionals
By Jarann Johnson
Beulah starting pitcher Taylor Christensen found herself in a pitching duel with DLB starting pitcher Erica Hermanson. Christensen and Beulah tried to pull off the upset but fell 2-1 in the opening round of the Class B West Region tournament Monday night.
Neither team could get any offensive rhythm going in the first two innings and the game approached the top of the 3rd inning. Beulah’s leadoff hitter Kayla Gierke struck out, giving Hermanson her sixth strikeout of the game.
No. 8-hitter Trinity Doe followed and drew a walk. Doe was Beulah’s first player to reach base. Doe advanced to second on a steal during an Averi Backus’ at-bat. Backus struck out, pushing Hermanson’s strikeout total to seven.
