Tosa East softball
Tori Froh was too much for Wauwatosa East's softball team to handle in its season opener, as the senior pitcher allowed just two hits to lead Waukesha North to a 10-0 victory over the Red Raiders on March 23.
Riley Breider led off the game with a single for Tosa East, but Froh then struck out the next nine Red Raiders to come to the plate. Tosa East's lone other hit was a single by Morgan Schmanski.
"Their pitcher was in charge," Tosa East coach Ed Raue said. "We had good at-bats, but she kept us off balance the whole time, with her changeup being the difference. Defensively, we couldn't make the big play. It was just out of our reach every time. It was a quick learning experience, one that will prepare us going forward."
Tosa East was scheduled to play four home games this week, beginning with a nonconference game against Waukesha South on March 27 followed by the Greater Metro Conference opener against Brookfield Central on March 28. The Red Raiders were then scheduled to host Sussex Hamilton on March 30 and Milwaukee Lutheran on March 31.
"As a coach, I intentionally scheduled tougher nonconference opponents because, in the end, we will be a better team," Raue said. "Next week will be a great test for us: four games in five days. Next week, we will have a better idea of who we are."
