A barrage of hits led the way for Northfield’s varsity softball team on the evening of Wednesday, April 27 after the Norse used 10 runs in the fifth inning en route to dominating county rival Wabash in a 17-0 Three Rivers Conference beatdown.

Northfield rode the momentum of their win over Wabash a day later when they defeated Marion 16-13 but their game over the Apaches was a culmination of work throughout the season said head coach Kyle France.
