WISCONSIN RAPIDS — Lexi Dupee hit a pair of home runs, and Rhiannon Corozolla added another long ball to pace the Marshfield softball team in a 13-3 victory over Wisconsin Rapids on Monday at Lincoln High School.
The Tigers smashed 17 hits, including four doubles and the three home runs.
Corozolla and Morgan Nordbeck each finished 3-for-4, Dupee had three RBIs and scored three times, Kaitlyn Konrardy had two hits and two RBIs, and Maddie Mews had two doubles and drove in two for the Tigers.
