Oskaloosa was able to bounce back with four wins in two nights after suffering a couple of tough losses to Albia and Norwalk earlier in the week. Meghan Moorman had a busy week behind the plate but was also able to do a lot of damage at the top of the order for the Indians.

With the bat, Moorman held a .389 batting average for the week with seven RBIs in the leadoff spot that included a five-RBI game against Newton. On the week she finished with seven RBIs while collecting a pair of walks.

From behind the plate, the senior catcher’s pitchers gave up a combined four runs over the last four games including catching a pair of shutouts. She also threw out a pair of would-be base stealers and made a spectacular diving catch with a hard landing against Pella.

On the season, Moorman is batting .400 with a team-high 12 hits to go along with seven RBIs and has thrown out four base runners.

Moorman and No. 8 (4A) Oskaloosa (7-3, 5-2 LHC) are back in action at home on Monday at 7:30 p.m. as they take on No. 7 (5A) Indianola (10-1, 9-0 LHC) in a top 10 showdown.
