Redettes fall in first round

OSCEOLA — The Centerville Redettes saw their season come to an end in the first round of regional play against the Clarke Indians.

Centerville held the No. 3 (3-A) Indians scoreless through four innings of play, forcing Clarke to strand four base runners during that span.

In the bottom of the fifth, however, the Indians began to open the floodgates. Clarke’s Sydnee Redman homered to centerfield to break the scoreless tie. Four at-bats later, Vanessa Bakley hit a two-run home run to left field to give the Indians a 3-0 lead.

In the sixth inning, Clarke scored four runs, expanding their lead to 7-0.

The Redettes were denied a hit as Clarke’s Libby Bemis led last year’s Class 3-A runner-up to a no-hit, shut-out. Libby Sebolt and Sara Howard were the only Redettes to reach the base paths, both by walks, to prevent the perfect game.

Centerville (18-5, 3-7 in SCC) says goodbye to a class of seven seniors, as Katie Ahnen, Bayliegh Johnson, Maddison Lange, Sydney Ocker, Kiley Micetich, Kaitlyn Moore and Hannah Sheston end their high school softball careers.

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
