MOSINEE SOFTBALL KEEPS GNC TITLE HOPES ALIVE WITH WIN AT FIRST-PLACE MEDFORD



Zaleski Sports


MEDFORD – The Mosinee softball team needed a win at first-place Medford to keep its Great Northern Conference championship hopes alive, and some clutch hitting helped the Indians get it.


Maria Valls Raya smacked a three-run homer in the top of the fourth inning to erase a two-run deficit and Mosinee held on from there to win 9-5 on Thursday at Medford High School.


Mosinee improves to 14-2 overall and 9-2 in the GNC, halting Medford’s chance at clinching the outright conference championship. Medford (16-3 overall) finishes the Great Northern Conference season with a 10-2 record and will at least share the conference title, depending the outcomes of the final games on the slate.


Mosinee will a nonconference game at Marshfield on Friday, which will be broadcast live at zaleskisports.com starting at 6 p.m., before finishing its GNC schedule Monday at Tomahawk. With a win over the Hatchets, Mosinee would share the conference title.


Antigo also has a chance to share the title as it played at Northland Pines on Thursday (result pending) and will finish its conference schedule at home against Tomahawk on Friday.


Mikah Keller had three hits and two RBI, and Hailey Shnowske also had a home run for Mosinee.


Katie Brehm had a three-run homer for Medford.
