Northern Tier WEST Sports Report
WELLSBORO — With a lone pair of seniors and just three juniors on their roster, the young Lady Hornets’ softball team struggled through a rebuilding year, finishing 4-16 on the season.

Wellsboro earned two of their four wins early, starting the season 2-2 with mercy-rule wins over Canton (13-3) and Coudersport (30-9) and scoring more runs (43) then they would the rest of the season (35) .. save for a 22-run outburst in the Hornets’ third win of the season, over St. John Neumann. 

Another win over Canton, this time by a 12-11 score, would be Wellsboro’s final ‘W’ on the season, as the Lady Hornets would drop their last five games by a combined score of 18-79. 

Paige Logsdon was a bright spot for the Hornets as the junior hit .469 with a .558 on-base-percentage and collected 15 base hits (4-2B, 1-3B, 3 HR), 21 RBI and 14 runs scored. 

Logsdon also threw a team-high 28 innings, going 1-4 with a 7.72 ERA and 25 strikeouts. A pair of freshman in Mazie Johnson (2-5) and Bailee Confer (1-4) pitched 26 and 21 innings with both reaching double-digit ERA’s and Johnson striking out 17 and Confer nine. 

The Lady Hornets got senior leadership from their lone two, Abby Owlett (7 hits, 15 runs, .340 OBP, 3-2B) and Caralyn Warner (8 hits, .356 OBP, 9 R, 8 RBI), and contributions from junior Ariana Lawton (.276 BA, .462 OBP, 8 H, 9 R, 8 RBI, 5 BB) and sophomore Tegan Del Rio (.296 BA, .387 OBP, 8 H, 7 R, 3 RBI).
