SIOUX CITY - The Ridge View softball team continued its winning ways as the Raptors traveled to Sioux City and took on Sioux City West in non-conference softball action. The Raptors came out on top, 5-1, in a good, competitive contest.

Picking up the win on the mound for the Raptors was Gretchen Kistenmacher, who threw all seven innings and gave up one earned run on three hits, while walking four and striking out four.

Leading the way at the plate for the Raptors was Ashlynn Blenner, who went 3-4, including two triples, with three runs scored and two stolen bases.

The coaches were happy with the patience the kids showed at the plate and how aggressively they ran the basepaths, with eight stolen bases in the contest.

The Raptors are now 20-9.
