Saturday was a fine day for the Wayland-Cohocton softball squad to host their softball classic at the Nest.
The Lady Eagles dispatched the Greece Odyssey Leopards handily to the tune of 10-0 in the opener. Erin King pitching told the tale as she went seven innings for the win with zero runs, on two hits, grabbing five Ks while walking three. The big bats were Rachel Meyer 2-4 with two runs and two RBIs, Sarah Wolcott 2-4 with three RBIs and a run, and Laura Kahn 3-4, with a stolen base and two RBIs.
In the championship game, WC ripped the Reds from Newark by a score of  7-1. They wasted no time getting on the board from the pair of first inning errors that threw open the doors for five Golden Eagle runs.  Diane Cork reached on a fielding miscue, Courtney Smith followed with a single and then Rachel Meyer's double drove in the first score. Sarah Wolcott followed with a 2-run single, Heather VanSon reached on an error and then swiped second. Kaitlyn Venable capped the rally with a run-scoring single. 
The maroon and gold scored another run in the second when Kaitlyn Venable singled and later scored on an error and finally in the third, Rachel Meyer tripled, Kelsey Feinman was walked and then scored on Sarah Wolcott's sacrifice fly to make the final 7-1.
Rachel Meyer recorded the win on the slab going the distance with seven strong innings, one earned run, four hits, nine Ks and a walk. Meyer aided her own cause going 2-4 at the plate with an RBI, Kaitlyn Venable went 2-2 with two RBIs and a score, Sarah Wolcott 2-3 with three RBIs and a sacrifice, Diane Cork scored a run, stole two bases and drove in a run, Courtney Smith 1-4 with a run, Kelsey Feinman scored twice, Heather VanSon 1-3, one RBI and a run, and Holly Mann went 1-1.
