Redettes sweep Van Buren

The Redettes picked up two wins Saturday morning as they beat Van Buren 4-3 and 10-4 at home. The two non-conference wins improved their overall record to 14-10.

In game one, the Redettes held a 3-0 lead after four innings. Van Buren would tie the game in the top of the fifth inning with three runs of their own.

The Redettes would prevent extra innings, picking up a walk-off run in the bottom of the seventh to win 4-3.

Kiley Micetich recorded five strikeouts over seven innings of work to claim the win.

A six-run first inning in the second game would eventually carry the Redettes to a victory and the Saturday sweep.

The Redettes added one insurance run in the third inning and three more in the fifth before claiming the 10-4 win.

Sophomore Colleen Boyle picked up the win with three strikeouts over seven innings of work.

The wins follow a Friday night loss to Cardinal by the score 4-1. The Redettes held a one-run lead after three innings in that contest. But, Cardinal would record two runs in both the fifth and seventh innings to take the victory.

Centerville (14-10) was in Chariton last night. They travel to Fairfield for a non-conference varsity doubleheader slated for 5:30 p.m. tonight.

The Iowegian wants readers to think about the solicitation ordinance that will prevent groups or individuals from entering a roadway to solicit money. The Centerville City Council in June by a 5-0 vote passed the first reading of just such an ordinance. Public pressure and during a subsequent special meeting, the council voted 3-2 to table the ordinance. A second special meeting to discuss the solicitation ordinance is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 7 at City Hall. So, the question of the week is, "Do you or do you not support the ordinance to prevent solicitation of funds in city streets?"

A. I support the ordinance
B. I do not support the ordinance
C. Not sure
