KALAMAZOO – The Ravenna Bulldogs’ stellar softball season came to an end on Tuesday in the Division 3 quarterfinals.

The Bulldogs dropped a 3-1 decision to Buchanan and saw their season end with a 33-9 record.

Ravenna opened the scoring in the third inning. Reese Herremans drew a walk, stole second, advanced to third in a sacrifice bunt by Emily Postema and scored on Sydney Morrissey’s sacrifice fly.

Buchanan pushed three runs across the plate in the bottom of the fifth inning and took a 3-1 lead.

Ravenna threatened in the top of the seventh. With two out, Raelyn Olsen walked, Natalie Rosel singled as did Herremans. A great defensive play on a long fly to left center by Postema ended the game.

Herremans finished the game with two hits. Addison Gillard, Kendra Denhof, Taylor Nutt and Rosel each had a hit.

Rosel suffered the loss on the mound for the Bulldogs. She allowed three runs, two earned, six hits and one walk.  She struck out three.

Buchanan will take on Evart in the state semifinals on Friday at Michigan State University.
