Errors cost Sting as Montevideo captures sweep
The Yellow Medicine East softball team wrapped up its regular season schedule with a doubleheader against Montevideo Friday in Granite Falls, and miscues in the field hurt the Sting more than they hurt their opponent as the Thunder Hawks earned a sweep.

Allie Trudel was the pitcher for the Sting in both games. Over the two contests she struck out 13 batters and walked three while allowing a total of 17 hits.
Nena McCalla had an RBI triple for YME in the Game 1 loss. In the second game, YME's Marissa Sneller went 3-for-3 with two RBIs and Cassie Struffert was 2-for-4 with a double and three RBIs.
YME (4-11 overall) is the No. 7 seed in the Section 3AA-North tournament and will play No. 2 seed Marshall at 3 p.m. Tuesday at the Marshall Softball Complex.
