Ferndale's Hannah Pichulo, Meagan Earley, Taryn DeMille and Maci Branstetter have a little mid-game meeting in the pitcher's circle as the Lady Cats saw their first game action of the season Tuesday versus Willits. Meagan Earley struck out 10 Willits batters over five innings, giving up just 4 hits. Earley, Maci Branstetter and Bailey Collings each went 2 for 3 at the plate and Ferndale looked sharp in their 10-0 win over the visitors. Some of the upcoming action this week includes Willits at Fortuna for boys baseball Friday afternoon and Ferndale hosts Laytonville on Saturday for both baseball and softball double-headers starting at 1 p.m.
