Orchard Farms, Mo:  The Lady Shamrocks began their season last night against the Orchard Farms Eagles.  The Eagles scored 15 runs off 15 hits defeating the Lady Rocks 15-0 in 4 innings.

After the game Coach Tim Scheer said, “The past few years their girls have always hit the ball well.  Last year they scored 11 runs off 16 hits against us.”

Kierstin Monzyk led the game off with a base hit but Senecal, Strobel, and Oetterer struck out in order.  The Lady Rocks would end the game with only 4 hits and no runs.  Coach Scheer said, “Our pitching was not bad, we gave up a lot of hits, but made a few errors as well that keeped an inning or two alive for the Eagles.”

The Lady Rocks have a young starting pitcher, Stephine Scheer, who is a sophomore and last night was her first start at the varsity level.  Scheer does have an experienced infield behind her with Kayla Oetterer, Rebecca Strobel, and Brandy Senecal who are all seniors.

Give this team a little time and after they have a few games under their belts, they will be fun to watch.

The Lady Rocks will be in action for their home opener tonight against Valley Park at Lions Field.  The first pitch will be at 4:30 p.m.
