The Wellsboro Varsity Softball team fell 16-5 to Wyalusing on Thursday, April 14.

After the Lady Rams took an early 1-0 lead in the top of the 1st, the Lady Hornets answered back in the bottom half of the inning with 3 runs. After a lead off walk by junior Jordyn Abernathy and a base hit by junior Rylie Boyce, Abernathy scored to tie the game after Boyce was thrown out stealing 2nd. A walk by junior Molly Ingerick and base hit by junior Madaline Bordas put two on for sophomore Abby Owlett.

The Lady Hornets produced 7 hits on the afternoon. Abernathy led the way with a pair of doubles while Bordas, Boyce, senior Emma Coolidge, Cavanaugh, and Urena all adding solo hits.
