DALE — After dropping its season opener Friday, Dale ripped Varnum 12-0 Tuesday.

A 12-11 loser at Morris Friday, Dale scored its final run Tuesday in the bottom of the fourth inning. The game was stopped on the 12-run-after-4 innings rule.

The Lady Pirates posted 16 hits with Jobey Savage leading the way with three— a 3-run home run in the third and two singles.

Sara Lock blasted a 2-run roundtripper in the second to go along with a single. Delanie Manning had a solo home run in the third.

Mikayla Rutland added a double and a single, as did Jalynn Haley.

Kaylee Lawson was the winning pitcher as the Whippets were limited to three hits.

“We played OK,” Dale coach Andy Powell said. “We have a lot of improvement to make.”

Friday, Dale’s Classic slate will be Moore at 10 a.m. and Tecumseh at 2 p.m.
