Eliza Rossman struck out 13 Trojans and walked one to lead her Bellingham softball team to a 16-3 non-conference win on Tuesday, March 24, at Meridian.
Rossman also went 3 for 4 at the plate with three doubles.
“Our offense was not there today,” Meridian coach Megan Monaghan said in a phone interview. “We just weren’t being aggressive at the plate. On defense, the balls just got to the gaps and we made a couple errors.”
Emma Weg took the loss for Meridian, but only walked three. She was also 1 for 3 with a double on offense.
