Elkhart, a No. 3 seed, upped their record to 13-4. The Resorters will play at No. 2-seeded Markesan in the semifinals Tuesday, May 21 at 5 p.m. Markesan received a firstround bye.

“We’re glad to move on and are looking forward to the next matchup,” said Resorter head coach Brian Feldmann.

The Resorters bunted well to move runners around and were helped by six Indian errors. Elkhart built a 6-0 lead after scoring three runs in the bottom of the third inning and three in the fifth.

The No. 6-seeded Indians pulled to within 6-4 with four runs in the sixth on three hits and three walks. Elkhart answered with three insurance runs in its half of the sixth to go up 9-4. The Resorters combined four hits and were aided by three Stockbridge miscues in the frame.

“We played great defense. Our hitting was off a little. We were pressing at the plate,” said Feldmann.

The Resorters collected nine hits, led by Aryanna Klemme and Emma Feldmann with two each. Klemme, Feldmann, Ashley Pfeifer and Emma Gross scored a team-high two runs apiece.

Elkhart’s bottom of the order of Feldmann, Pfeifer and Gross came through as they combined for four hits, led by Feldmann’s pair, and six runs.

Klemme was the winning pitcher. She gave up four earned runs on 10 hits with six walks and five strikeouts in going the distance.

“Aryanna pitched out of trouble,” coach Feldmann noted.

The Indians stranded eight baserunners, including five in the last three innings combined.

“Rachael Flora, (third baseman) Charity Rodriguez (shortstop) and Jordan Shaw (center fielder) played great defense,” said the coach.

Stockbridge’s attack was led by Anna Geiser, Jeana Campbell and Kati Zahringer with two hits each.
