Ashley Post finished 3-for-4 with five RBI and Sydney Hall had two hits and two knocked in as the Olentangy softball team knocked off visiting Liberty 10-2 in Monday’s regular season finale.

The Patriots scored the game’s first run in the top of the first, but it was all Braves from that point on. Olentangy plated a pair in the second and, after Liberty evened things back up with a run in the third, scored a run in the bottom of the third, five in the fourth and two in the fifth to smooth out the scoring summary.

Logan Sutton picked up the win in the circle, allowing two runs on eight hits while walking a batter in her seven innings of action.

Arica Flaugher and Lilee Larosa knocked in the Patriots’ runs while Katelyn Wilhelm took the loss in the circle.
