Against Fennville, Kylie Masko dominated on the mound. She threw a complete game and struck out 10. Morgan Hill led the way offensively with three triples. Kaylee Hartwell and Mikayla Gronback each had two triples.

Hill and Gronback were leaders at the plate once again, going 3-for-3 and 3-for-4, respectively.

Grand Haven bounced back quickly against Saugatuck, scoring 19 runs on 17 hits in just four innings. Gronback and Jordan Buckingham each had three hits for the Bucs, while Hartwell legged out an inside-the-park home run. Audrey Boersen picked up the win on the mound.
