Three big wins

Carlie Sweet (shown) went 3-for-6 with a double and 250-foot grand slam in a 20-4 Raider softball rout of Vermilion Sunday at Findorff Field on the Central Lakes College campus in Brainerd. “It was the longest (softball) home run I’ve ever seen,” said CLC Coach Greg Medeck. Six CLC players contributed extra base hits and Jenni Smolke added four RBIs for the Raiders. Samantha Harting pitched a complete game for CLC, allowing four earned runs off of 10 hits, while striking out five and walking five. Foul weather forced cancellation of the second game Sunday. Division: CLC 5-6. Overall: CLC 6-12 . Next: Tuesday at Fon Du Lac (Cloquet), 3 p.m.
