Area softball roundup

COLFAX — The Tigerhawks kept their home record perfect so far this season by defeating Iowa Valley, 8-5, Thursday night.

Eighth grader Ries Wilson earned her first varsity victory by throwing a complete game for Colfax-Mingo. She gave up four hits and only one earned run.

Wilson benefitted from her teammates scoring in each of the first four innings. Rhiannon Haley and Rylee Thompson both had two hits a piece in the win, and Haley was one of four Tigerhawks who had a RBI.

The Tigerhawks won despite committing six fielding errors, which helped Iowa Valley score four unearned runs.

Colfax-Mingo (6-2) travels to Monroe tonight to play the PCM Mustangs (5-0).

The win was North Polk’s second straight after the Comets lost their first seven games of the season.
