The incredibly high level of play by the Pella softball team continued on Monday night, as the Lady Dutch shut out Grinnell 12-0 in four innings.  Pella had four players with two hits apiece, led by Rachel Greving’s two doubles, while Mackenzie Anthony smacked a two-run home run to continue her hot streak at the plate.  

Pitcher Mandy DeMeulenaere was dominant in the circle, throwing a no-hitter that included four strike-outs to earn the victory.  

The Lady Dutch are now 14-5 overall and 9-2 in the Little Hawkeye Conference, and will play North Mahaska in a non-conference game this evening in Pella.
