Maple Grove Softball Blanks Blaine
Maddie Wilhm struck out 17 batters as the Maple Grove softball team shut out Blaine 2-0 Thursday.
The senior pitched fanned at least two batters in every inning as the Crimson improved to 7-1 on the season, 6-0 in the Northwest Suburban Conference.
Alyssa Wernz and Izzy Vitense each produced run-scoring singles for the Crimson.
Blaine got the tying run on base in the top of the 7th but Wilhm induced an game-ending groundout.
Maple Grove faces Spring Lake Park in their next game on Tuesday.
