FORT DODGE – Sydni Huisman drove in five runs in her final high school game and earned the pitching win on Wednesday as seventh-rated Treynor outslugged No. 13 Mount Vernon 7-6 in a Class 3-A consolation game of the state softball tournament at the Rogers Sports Complex.

The victory allows Treynor (31-4) to finish in a tie for fifth with Algona in 3-A. The game was shortened to six innings due to a 90-minute time limit.

After Treynor fell behind 5-0, Huisman got her team going in the third inning with a three-run double to pull the Cardinals within 5-4.

In the fifth inning, Konnor Sudmann and Alyssa Kellar singled to set the stage for Huisman’s two-run, go-ahead single. Bella Dingus added an RBI single for a 7-5 lead.

Huisman finished 2-for-3 with five RBIs, while Sudmann and Kellar added two hits each and Stella Umphreys had an RBI. Huisman struck out eight and walked five, finishing the game with a strikeout.

Seven Treynor seniors ended their careers with the victory: Huisman, Sudmann, Reagan Darrah, Alexis Kellar, Kayla Chapman, Jordan Finnegan and Jessica Vohs.
