Winning national championships is becoming the norm for the Rock Valley softball team. They won their fourth in as many years late Saturday night in Rochester, Minnesota.
The Golden Eagles rocked Suffolk County Community College 20-0 in the National Championship game. With another shut out Rock Valley did not give a single run during the tournament. RVC outscored their opponents 41-0 in their four games.
Sophomore Olivia Fluehr dominated on the big stage like she’s done her entire time at Rock Valley. The former Harlem Huskie pitched five-shutout innings giving up just two hits, and five strikeouts. After a scoreless inning from Jasmine Lawson in the sixth freshman Tori Rentschler shut the door in the seventh with three consecutive strikeouts.
The offense scored 15 of it’s 20 runs in the third, fourth, and fifth innings. Six different batters drove in at least two runs.
Rock Valley’s fourth consecutive national championship comes in record setting fashion. The Golden Eagles won a program-record 57 games with just two losses all year.
