Three nights in a row the honorable mention (21st ranked) Monroe Central varsity softball team faced a foe as highly regarded. Thursday night the Lady Bears took on honorable mention (26th ranked) and possible sectional foe Shenandoah, dropping a 14-8 contest.
This came on the heels of losses to 7th ranked Tri and 6th ranked Elwood as the Lady Bears are now 4-4 on the year.
Shenandoah was powered by a grand slam during the night as they overcame an early 3-2 Lady Bear advantage.
The Lady Bears were led in hitting by Jocelyn Peckham with three singles, while Mikaela McGrath added a pair of doubles.
MC led after one inning, but their state leading offense went silent until the bottom of the 7th inning when they added four runs.
