Peterson of Marion Center wins 200th victory Sports

Ed Peterson of the Marion Center won his 200th career victory as head coach in a 15-0 win over Penns Manor at home in the Heritage Conference softball game on Wednesday.

“As a coach, it’s one of those things where, of course, winning is winning, but I like to look at the way girls play. Our girls played well, and that’s the main thing, ”said Peterson, who has 200-72 in his 15-season career. “This is an important milestone that not many coaches reach, and I am lucky that for 15 seasons in our program there have been many really good players. I have also worked with many very good coaches. I was just lucky to be the leader. “

The Stingers held Penns Manor to three strokes and struck 11. Alexis Rush led with a home run, two and four RBIs as well as four strikeouts to win the mound.

“I’d say Lexi had a pretty good day,” Peterson joked.

Maya Lipsey made two hits, including a double, and scored two RBI, while Abigail Smulik had two singles.

“Our team is really starting to click,” Peterson said. “We have four here in a row now, and everything is going together. We have a big one with Northern Cumbria. They gave us our first defeat, so I hope we can play a little better than the first time. “
