The Mid-Prairie Golden Hawk softball team ran their current winning streak to five with a pounding of No. 12 in Class 3A Anamosa on the road Tuesday 7-0. Action was scoreless until the third, when the Hawks batted through the order, scoring four times on four hits against starter Mady Meeker with Sophie Miller and Brittni Kinsinger supplying the RBI hits to drive in Molly Yoder, Dakota Mitchell, Gabi Robertson and Kinsinger. Mid-Prairie would score again in the fourth as Yoder capitalized on an Anamosa error to cross home plate. Two more scored in the sixth with Yoder and Mitchell coming home on RBI knocks from Robertson and Schrader. All of that offense was more than enough for freshman starter Sydney Knebel in the circle who threw a complete game three hit shut out while striking out five. After the game Knebel talked about her night in the circle and Yoder her day at the plate. Knebel said, “I think my rise was working good and my drop was good and I was hitting my spots really well tonight.”

Yoder said, “I wanted to be sure to keep my timing down. Their pitcher was a good speed so we were all able to time her up. So we were all able to hit her.”

Mitchell had three hits, Robertson two, Kinsinger drove in a pair, Robertson, Schrader and Miller all had one RBI and Yoder scored three times. The Golden Hawks current winning streak is their longest since a six-gamer in 2016. They have a 9-7 record. The Hawks travel to West Branch Wednesday.
