Indians’ Lehn dominant in win over PHS

PLYMOUTH – Standout pitcher Kennedy Lehn fanned 16 batters and allowed only two hits in pitching Kewaskum to a 13-1 softball win over the Plymouth Panthers here May 15.

Lehn, the East Central Conference’s Co-Player of the Year last season, walked one. She also had a team-high three hits and three RBIs.

The Indians upped their ECC-leading record to 12-0 (14-0 overall). Kewaskum was ranked No. 2 in the Wisconsin Fast-Pitch Softball Coaches Association Division 2 poll last week.

The Panthers finished fifth in the ECC race with a 6-8 record and ended the regular season with a 10-8 mark. PHS showed good improvement over last season when it tied for sixth in the league at 3-11 and was 6-15 in the regular season.

“Lehn is so good. She is fast and locates everything so well,” said PHS head coach Gale Grahn about Lehn’s pitching.

The only hits for PHS were a single each by Sylvia Peters and Izzy Arbuckle in the bottom of the fifth inning. The Panthers scored their run in the fifth. Peters singled, moved to third on an infield error and came home on a fielder’s choice by Sommer Stoney.

Ashley Trapp shared the Indians’ lead in hits and RBIs with three each.

The Panthers committed a season-high eight errors. Seven of those errors led to eight unearned runs by Kewaskum. Peters went the distance and took the loss. She gave up 13 hits and four walks to go with three strikeouts.

“You can’t give a great time like Kewaskum all those extra chances. Hopefully, we got it out of our system before the WIAA tourney starts,” said Grahn.

“We met a goal of moving up in the conference and getting to 10 wins overall.”
