Del Oro High School’s JV girls softball team continued their fine season by posting a pair of recent wins over Woodcreek and Roseville. The two victories helped raise the Del Oro squad’s Sierra Foothill League mark to 5-0. Overall on the season, the girls are 15-1. In an 8-4 win over Woodcreek, Taylor Haynes led the way at the plate by going three-for-four with a double and scoring three runs. The win against Roseville was a bit closer as the Lady Eagles needed to score three fifth-inning runs to make the difference in a tight, 4-3 verdict. Haynes ripped a key two-run double for the Lady Eagles while Megan Moore and Heather Boyce also contributed run-scoring singles. Carly Xepoleas gained the mound win and fanned five batters. Del Oro’s JVs play at Nevada Union Thursday at 4 p.m. ~ Staff report
