In what would appear to be the theme for this week, the varsity softball team dodged the raindrops all night and survived two lightning delays to open 2015 GWOC Central play with a 7-1 win over the visiting Springfield Wildcats.
The Elks jumped out in front, 2-0 early, and then had to sit through a couple of lightning delays. When the game resumed, the Elks picked up where they left off on both offense and defense en route to the easy victory.
The win evened their overall record at 2-2 and jump started them to a 1-0 mark in GWOC Central play on the young season.
The team travels to Springfield tonight for a rematch with the Wildcats at 5:00 PM, weather permitting.
