Lehman drops

road match

Piqua softball

picks up wins

TROTWOOD — On a strange night, Piqua softball played one game and picked up two wins.

Piqua was scheduled to play a GWOC American game with Trotwood-Madison Wednesday.

Winton Woods was also scheduled to play at Trotwood-Madison.

When Trotwood had only six players and forfeited, Piqua played Winton Woods, rather than waste a long bus trip for both teams.

Piqua won 13-1, making them 14-4 overall and 6-3 in GWOC American play.

Piqua travels to Greenon Saturday to play Bellefontaine and Greenon.

Mariah Blankenship and Paige Hinkle combined on a no-hitter.

Hannah Anderson was 2-for-3 with one RBI, while Hinkle had a double and three RBIs.

Reagan Toopes was 2-for-3 with a double and two RBIs and Kamy Trissell had two RBIs.
