Hopkins High School
Hopkins defeated Edina in Lake Conference play 6-1 on Monday night. The Royals bats were idle until the 4th inning when Natalie DenHartog led off with a single. DenHartog stole second and scored on Parker Stoddard’s single up the middle. The Royals continued to roll in the 5th when with 2 outs they put together 5 consecutive base hits to score 3 runs. In the top of the 7th, Hannah Kleist led off with a single and stole her second base of the day. Evelyn Barczak singled and Natalie DenHartog tripled scoring 2 runs. DenHartog scored on a Makenzie Merritt infield grounder. Merritt recorded her 4th win of the season backed by strong Hopkins defensive plays. Hopkins plays non-conference games vs Irondale and Maple Grove later this week.
