COTTONWOOD — All nine batters in the Genesee baseball team’s lineup recorded at least one base hit Monday as the Bulldogs beat Prairie 20-10 in a Whitepine League game.
Nate Guinard racked up a homer, a double and two singles for Genesee (7-3, 7-2), which hit its stride in the fourth and sixth innings.
“I loved our guys’ focus from the first pitch,” Genesee coach Kevin Maurer said. “Our offensive approach I thought was really good and the team is starting to learn how to beat tough outs. We did a great job with two strikes today.”

SOFTBALLPrairie 13-10,Kendrick 10-20
KENDRICK — The Kendrick softball team bounced back with a 20-10 win after falling 13-10 in the first half of a Whitepine League doubleheader against Prairie.
Madison Shears of Prairie had a double, a home run and five RBI in the initial game, while Hailey Taylor had seven hits (two doubles) over both contests for the Tigers (10-2, 8-2).
“The girls are hitting well at times this season but not really when we expect it,” Kendrick coach Morgan LeBlanc said. “We knew (Prairie’s) defense was pretty solid, but we made quite a few errors and the Prairie girls made plays. Our outfielders are struggling to pick up fly balls right now and we’ll need to work on keeping runners where they are.”
