Prep Roundup: Stone is a rock for Carson softball
Melissa Stone notched her third win for Carson High School, and the Senators went seven innings for the first time all season in an 8-0 softball victory over visiting Fallon on Tuesday afternoon.
Stone struck out eight and didn’t walk anyone, while Kendra Carlsen was 3-for-3 with two RBIs, as the Senators improved to 4-0 on the season.
“I was real pleased with the girls today,” Carson coach John Sullivan said. “We’re hitting the ball really well, and we only had four strikeouts, which was great.”
Brandi Cotroneo was 2-for-4 with three RBIs and Amanda Hoff continued her strong play with a 2-for-3 effort. Hoff, a junior who hadn’t played softball in two years, has been on a tear in the early going.
“She’s been a pleasant surprise,” Sullivan said. “She’s definitely been hitting the ball well for us.”

Dayton 8, Coleville 4
Jen Dillie had 15 strikeouts en route to the Dust Devils’ victory over visiting Coleville.
At one point, Dillie struck out nine straight hitters, a streak that ran from the fourth to the sixth inning. It was a dominating performance, save the third inning, when Coleville scored all four of its runs.
“She really threw well,” Dayton coach Jeanne Utterback said. “She faltered a bit in the third, but after that she came out strong. With nine straight strikeouts, you can tell that she got mad.”
Carrie Kordonowy was equally lethal at the plate, going 4-for-4 with a two-run homer, a double and three total RBIs. Dillie was also 2-for-4 with an RBI for Dayton.
“Carrie called a good game behind the plate, and she was obviously outstanding in her hitting,” Utterback said.
Dayton (5-0) travels to face Fernley at 3 p.m. today.
