Hannah Marshall clubbed three hits for the Bullpups, while Madison Hoffman and Jasmine Wann had two. Gracy Feil drove in two runs.
The MHS JVs played South in a pair of games, losing 8-0 and 15-5.
The Bullpups had only four singles in the first game by four different players. In the second game, MHS wasted a 4-of-4 game by Teri Yates. Elle Schrag added two hits.
