ALEXANDRIA – The Bemidji High School softball team continued its winning ways in Alexandria on Tuesday, picking up its fourth victory in five games.

This time, the Lumberjacks jumped on the Cardinals early and rode a big advantage to a 9-1 win.

Lexie Tatro continued her hot streak at the plate with a three-run home run in the top of the first inning – her third in the last five games. Izzy Neadeau joined her with a two-run blast in the frame, marking her second straight game with a homer.

The Jacks (7-8) tacked on three more runs in the third inning, opening up an 8-0 lead thanks to Kat Malterud’s RBI double and Payton Weidemann’s RBI groundout. Neadeau walked to force in the final run for BHS in the fourth.
