USC is shut out by Blooming Prairie

By Chuck Hunt - Editor | Apr 18, 2021

USC began their softball season with a game against Blooming Prairie.

The softball fans were dressed more like it was winter than spring, all bundled up against the temperature in the 40s and a cold north wind, when the United South Central Rebel girls played their first game of the year at Thompson Park field last Monday, April 12.

Unfortunately, the Rebels could not generate much offense and fell to the visiting Blooming Prairie Blossoms team by a score of 11-0.

The Blossoms scored one run in the first inning, one in the third, six in the fourth and three in the fifth to complete their scoring.

Blooming Prairie had a total of 11 runs on 10 hits and two errors, while USC had no runs, three hits and six errors.

Hannah Meyer pitched all five innings for the Rebels, gave up five earned runs, allowed 10 hits, but did strike out seven batters.

The Rebels three hits for the day came from Hannah Olson, Erika Johannsen and Merideth Klingbeil.

Next up for the Rebels was a game Thursday, April 15, at Faribault Bethlehem Academy, followed by a game on Monday, April 19, at home against Hayfield.
