On Tuesday, the Alpena High School softball team played Gaylord. The Wildcats lost both games of the doubleheader.

In game one, the final score wrapped up 11-1 in favor of Gaylord.

“I was very proud of our Alpena squad as we played on of our best games of the year in the first game versus the reigning D2 state champions,” Alpena coach Paul Marwede. ” We came out with energy and poise, we had a good mental present at the plate and put the ball in play.”

Entering the fourth inning with Gaylord leading 2-0, Gaylord erupted for six runs and put the game away.

Game two ended with Gaylord scoring 18 against Alpena’s 1.

“Gaylord showed why they are the top team in the BNC and setting their sites on another trip to MSU,” Marwede said. “They are a very good team, a complete team.”
