The Dodge City High School softball team did not play like a team who was 0-8 on Thursday, defeating Wichita South 12-3 and 18-0.
    Dodge City had the bats rolling, picking up 22 hits in the series and limited South’s opportunities to cross the plate.
    “It was a good team win all the way around,” DCHS head coach Heather Steiner said.  “Coach Elder and I spent time with pitchers the last time around and we talked about hitting spots and getting ahead in the count. All the pitchers did a really good job.
    Sophomore left-hander Morgan Schaller picked up the Demons first win of the season, throwing five innings and allowing one run.
    Katie Wood threw five shutout innings for the game two win. Wood also contributed from the plate, going 4-for-9 with three doubles and two RBIs in the doubleheader.
    Jessica Shipps had the hot bat in the first game, going 4-for-5 with three doubles and two RBIs.
    Other key hitters were Alex Sanchez, who went 2-for-3, a double and an RBI, and Taylor Oldham who went 2-for-5 with a double and an RBI. Oldham had two RBIs in the second game off of 2-for-4 hitting.
    Waldman was hot at the plate in game two, going 3-for-4 with a double and three RBIs.
    Dodge City is now 2-8 and will Hays on Tuesday at Legends Park. First pitch is scheduled for 4 p.m.
    “Hopefully we use this momentum and build on these two wins,” Steiner said.
