Jimmies softball sweep Hastings on senior day

Apr. 20—JAMESTOWN — The University of Jamestown got out to a quick start and that was enough to see them get a 4-2 win over Hastings College on Saturday, April 20, at the Nelson Family Bubble.

The Jimmies opened the scoring two batters in the first inning when Kayla Quintanilla hit a single to score Trinity Gregg and push the lead to 1-0. The Jimmies added two more in the inning to take a 3-0 lead. The Jimmies finished the first inning with three runs on four hits.

The home squad added one more on a sacrifice fly in the second to go up 4-0. That would prove to be the insurance that the Jimmies needed as the Broncos punched back in the fourth inning when Elana Gerhard hit a ground-rule double to score a run and cut the deficit to 4-1. The visitors added one more in the inning to cut the deficit to 4-2.
