SIOUX CITY — The Le Mars girls softball team remained unbeaten this summer, improving to 9-0 with a doubleheader sweep at Sioux City West Tuesday night, 7-2 and 15-1 in three innings.  The Lady Bulldogs remain tied for the conference lead at 8-0.  In Game One, freshman Lizzie Koonce tossed a two-hitter with no walks and two unearned runs.  Jordyn Davison, Brooke Haage and Avery Pratt drove in two runs each.  In Game Two, the Lady Bulldogs had 12 hits in a 15-1 ‘Mercy Rule’ victory in three innings over the Wolverines.  Kady Leusink had four hits, including a double and a triple.  Her triple ended the top of third when she was ruled out for missing second base.  The two runs counted though and Le Mars took a 14-run lead into the bottom of the third.  Libby Leraas and Mo Marineau drove in four runs each and Alvia Milbrodt had three hits.  Milbrodt ran her record to 5-0 in the pitching circle, tossing a three-hitter.  Le Mars hosts Bishop Heelan Thursday in a varsity doubleheader starting at 12-noon.  There will be no J.V. game.
