Pitcher Mandy DeMeulenaere allowed just three hits and Whitney Williams was a one-woman juggernaut on offense to help guide the Lady Dutch to a 9-0 win over South Tama in softball Wednesday night.  

Pella totaled up 11 hits in the victory, including an impressive 4-for-4 performance from Williams.  Even more impressive was her showcase on the bases, as Williams stretched one hit into an inside-the-park home run and stole a mind-blowing six bases.  

Mackenzie Anthony went 3-for-3 at the plate with a walk, while pitcher Mandy DeMeuelenaere batted 2-for-4 with 2 RBIs to help her cause in the pitcher’s circle – where she struck out six South Tama batters and gave up no walks.  

The win moves the Pella softball team to 6-3 overall entering Thursday’s contest at Grinnell.
