Coach Judi Mansheffer applauded the offense after the successful weekend.

“The team is getting offensive contributions out of all nine spots in the batting order. It’s been fun to see which player is going to step up next and make a contribution,” Mansheffer said. “This isn’t just a team of softball players. They are a close knit family that always has each other's back.”

Mansheffer also shared the regular season stats for her top two pitchers.

“Olivia (Kennedy) and Payton (Yahner) have teamed up for a combined 195 strike outs , 16 hits, 21 walks, 8 runs with only two being earned runs.”

Greene is set to host Unatego in the first round of the MAC playoffs this afternoon (Tuesday) at 4:30 p.m.
