Marathon High School sophomore Jordan Roney did it all on Wednesday, knocking in two runs and turning in a dominant pitching performance in a shutout home softball win against Carrollton School, 6-0.
Junior Savannah Rodamer also had a big day, reaching base in all four plate appearances and launching a home run over the left field fence in the fourth inning. Coach Sean McDonald called the homer an "impressive shot" that struck the awning of the school building, which sits well past the fence.
Rodamer, Amanda Bruland and Sydney Konrath all had two hits, while Roney and Rodamer each drove in two. Bruland and Konrath knocked in one run apiece.
Roney was all but untouchable on the mound, striking out seven Cyclones and walking none over seven innings.
"Her first-pitch strike percentage was really high, which is something she's been working on. That's been one of our goals for her," McDonald said, adding that the team settled down defensively behind Roney as the game wore on.
"The defense played solid; we limited our errors, which was nice. The last five innings I don't think we committed one error," he said.
The Dolphins scored one run in both the second and third innings to build an early 2-0 lead, but a four-run rally in the fourth put the game out of reach at 6-0.
Marathon (2-0) is scheduled to visit St. Brendan High School on Tuesday at 4 p.m. The Dolphins defeated the Sabres, 2-1, in their Feb. 7 season opener.
