Monica Reedy scattered one run and seven hits over seven innings to claim the win. Ravenna (8-3) will now have plenty of time to prepare for the state tournament which is set to begin July 22.

"Monica pitched a great game," said first-year Ravenna coach Ron Vojtkofsky. "She was a little tired because she was in a tournament (Saturday). But she just sucked it up and had a great game. Our defense played well behind her. We had some excellent plays by Morgan Prater at second.

"Overall, all the girls hit the ball real well. It's just a great group of kids. They have hung together real well. I'm very happy with them all."

Ravenna got all the offense it would need in the bottom of the first inning, plating two runs off Randolph starter and losing pitcher Cindy Steinel.

Andree Schomer led off the frame by reaching on an error and moved to second on Taylor Vespoint's infield single. Schomer then scored the game's first run on a Randolph two-base throwing error.

Steinel recorded the inning's first out on a strikeout, but Jamie Williams followed with a sacrifice fly to make the score 2-0.

The game remained tight until the fourth inning when Ravenna broke the game open by tallying four more runs.

Another Randolph two-base error allowed Reedy to cross the plate with the inning's first run on a Schomer sacrifice fly. Two batters later, Prater came through with the key hit of the frame, a long triple to center that drove home two more runs. A Brooke VonStein single produced the final run of the rally.

Randolph got on the board in the fifth when Beckie Kovacich (2 singles) started things with a single and scored one out later on Lisa Klauka's single. Reedy prevented further damage with a strikeout and induced a fly ball.

The very next inning, Reedy spaced apart three more singles, but did not surrender a run.

Prater led Ravenna with two hits. Her triple was Ravenna's lone extra-base hit.
