A Pirate Welcome Home for Libby Schaadt (by M. Foster)

(BLUFFTON) - Sophomore Libby Schaadt had a big afternoon for the Bluffton softball team as the Pirates defeated both visiting Elida and Mother Nature for a 4-1 victory.  With the field snow covered at day break, the win was much needed for the Pirates who had not played in a week. 

Schaadt struck out 9 batters and allowed one earned run as she improved to 2-0 on the season.  Libby also decimated the Bulldogs with a bat in her hand, launching a two run home run to stake Bluffton to a 3-0 lead in the third inning.   

Averey Rumer went a perfect 3/3 on the day with two runs scored and two stolen bases for BHS (2-0).  Katie Prater had two hits in three at bats including a double and two RBI.  Mara Minnig went 1/2.
