In girls softball Tuesday, the Trojans dropped to a 4-2 decision to New Ulm to fall to 3-2 on the season. The loss was the second straight for the Trojans against the Eagles.
New Ulm had a 3-0 lead through two and a half innings, but the Trojans got two in the bottom of the third when Marin Pederson singled and came around to a score on a three-base throwing error. Olivia Hayenga later reached second on a fielder’s choice play on which Haley Grimmius got caught in a rundown between third base and home, and Hayenga later hustled around to score on an infield single by Hannah McNab.
Those would be the only runs for the Trojans in the game, though, as they finished with just three hits. Grimmius took the loss, giving up eight hits and three earned runs while walking three and striking out 14.
