Area softball: Ellsworth 10, New Richmond 3
The Panthers exploded for six runs in the first inning Tuesday on the road to roll past New Richmond.
The highlight of the opening frame was a grand slam by Kayla Christopherson.
Ellsworth coach Ryan Casper said that Christopherson's blast was over a fence marked at 210 feet.
"That was a pretty good poke," he said.
She went 2-for-5 on the day with five RBI.
Ellsworth scored all 10 of its runs in the first three innings.
