“These were good games for us to play going into districts, especially that first game,” said Oriole coach Sierra Holms. “Reed City is a good team, and they make plays.
“We saw good pitching too. Our young kids also got some experience tonight. That said, we’re just a little bit out of rhythm right now.
“We really haven’t been able to have a solid practice in quite a while due to weather, games, and graduation, so we’re looking forward to being able to work on some things tomorrow and get ourselves prepared for districts.”
Ludington fell to 16-12 on the season.
