News and Announcements
The Robins are now 3-0 after a very nice 8-0 win over the Mounds View Rams. They used a fast start, scoring 7 times in the first two innings, and nearly flawless defense to keep this game in their favor from start to finish. The defense was so solid, the Rams only advance one runner beyond second base in seven innings. Sam Roles and Calvin Gerdt split the pitching duties, allowing a combined 9 hits en route to the shut-out. Roles also had a nice day at the plate, driving in three runs on two hits. Brendan Bosker-Elliott and Ethan Sullivan also had 2 RBI each, while Hayley Engebretsen had 1 RBI of her own.
NOTICE (Fri. 4/13/18 12:15pm): The 2018 Lloyd Olson Adapted Softball Invitational has been CANCELLED due to the “spring” snow storm! Weather forecasts are often varied, but the current storm system models show dangerous travel conditions that will affect many teams. The safety of all teams, fans and volunteers is our #1 priority. We really want to thank our event committee, volunteers and sponsors for their efforts. Let’s hope 2019 will bring us real spring weather!
The Robins pounded out 24 hits, including 3 home runs, en route to a 12-2 win over the Osseo Orioles this afternoon and are now 2-0 on the season. Calvin Gerdt had 4 hits and accounted for 2 of the HR’s to go along with 3 RBI. Vincent Luu also had 4 hits and 3 RBI to go along with his HR. Izear Joiner and Brendan Bosker-Elliott finished the game with 3 hits each, while Hayley Engebretsen, Ethan Sullivan, Lydia Mazza and Sam Roles all had 2 hits each. Roles was the winning pitcher, tossing 4 innings while allowing just 3 hits. The Robins now have a little break in their schedule, with 2 non-conference games on Saturday as a part of the Lloyd Olson Invitational Softball Tournament, and then two practices next week before resuming their regular season schedule on April 23 with a game at Mounds View.
The Robins got the 2018 adapted softball season off to a great start today, defeating the Anoka-Hennepin Mustangs 10-3. A 5-run first inning and a 4-run fifth inning were more than enough to get the job done when the infield defense managed to turn 3 double plays to keep the Mustangs from getting any offense of their own going. Calvin Gerdt led the way with 4 hits, Hayley Engebretsen had 3 hits while Izear Joiner, Ethan Sullivan, Sam Roles and Darius Larson all had 2 hits each. Roles led the way with 3 RBI. Engebretsen and Sullivan each had 2 RBI. The Robins look to stay perfect on Wednesday when they face the Osseo Orioles at 4:15 PM at Armstrong H.S.
