Shamrock Softball Splits with Dansville, Wins Title at Lake Leelanau Tournament
St. Patrick Varsity softball hosted Dansville Thursday night for two league contests.
Game 1: Win: 11-8
In a game of grit and determination the Shamrocks took a victory. Carly Scheurer led defensively from the mound with 12 strikeouts! Addie Scheurer held the runners and threw out the only stolen base attempt. Carly also went 3 for 4 with a triple and 2 RBIs, Lydia Meredith went 3 for 5 with 2 RBIs, Aurora Beckhold went 1 for 2 with 2 walks and an RBI, Bella Meyers went 2 for 4 and 2 RBIs, Mara Schrauben also added 1 RBI. The team collectively had one strikeout for the entire game.
Game 2: Loss: 18-19
A trio of pitchers led the Shamrocks from the mound. Tori Sandborn, Natalee Teachworth, and Carly Scheurer held together the lengthy high scoring 7 inning game. Addie Scheurer threw out two stolen base attempts. Lydia Meredith went 6 for 6 with 2 doubles and Grand Slam with 7 RBIs!!! Carly Scheurer went 3 for 6 with a 1 triple and an RBI. Emma Honsowitz went 3 for 5 with 2 RBIs. Jamelyn Forist went 2 for 5 and a double. Addie Scheurer went 2 for 4 with a double and an RBI. Natalee Teachworth went 3 for 5 and an RBI.
The girls absolutely showed up on offense tonight. They had one strikeout on the entire night and made solid connection each at bat. We couldn’t be more proud of that effort. We are currently suffering from injuries and those injuries are compounding into weak areas of defense that increase our margin of errors. These girls used grit and determination to battle each and every inning. Game 1 we were dominate and smooth defensively. Game 2 we moved people defensively and we had to rise above Dansville’s bats. To put up 18 runs and not take the win was a tough reality.
St Patrick in Lake Leelanau

Our program always looks forward to this weekend tournament. It’s a fabulous atmosphere with beautiful scenery and fun competition. It’s a special weekend to share with our baseball program and when we can both take home a championship it really sweetens the deal! We look forward to supporting the benefit’s cause at the Kris Popp tournament and were even able to fundraise this year. We purchased pink team shirts and we had pink accessories donated by Karen Scheurer. As always, we thank our team families for taking time to attend this weekend up north and hope to continue the tradition next year.
