Gould, Jensen Lead Whitehall over Cougars
Everyone who follows local softball knows that Madi Gould is one of the best, if not the best pitcher in the area. However, Gould is just not a standout in the circle. She can also swing a pretty mean bat.
Yesterday against North Warren Gould's pitchng arm got a day off, but she still had a huge impact on the game as the Railroaders rolled past North Warren 18-2 in an Adirondack League game shortened to five innings by the run rule.
Gould was 3 for 4 at the plate with two home runs, a single and eight RBIs.
Vinna Jensen also had a major impact on the Whitehall victory. Jensen spun a two-hitter and struckout eight to earn the win in the circle. She also was 2 for 2 with a pair of singles at the plate.
Nicole Buckman doubled and drove in a run for the Cougars.
Whitehall is now 3-0, 5-1 on the season. North Warren is 0-5, 0-6.
