The Bitburg Lady Barons, who honored their late teacher David Turner by dedicating Saturday’s softball doubleheader to his memory, swept visiting AFNORTH 15-0 and 21-6.

Game 1 winning pitcher Kelsey Wilson and Game 2 winner Ana Guiterrez each limited AFNORTH to a single hit in leading the Lady Barons, some of whom were on the cross country team Turner coached shortly before his death in September.

Wilson, 3-for-3 at the plate, struck out three in the opener, according to Bitburg coach Daniel Vasquez. She was backed by the bat of second baseman Valerie Ruemele, who also went 3-for-3 and drove in five runs.

Guitierrez was 4-for-4 at the plate in the nightcap. She gave way to Wilson, who struck out the final three batters of the game, in the final inning. Wilson drove in five runs, going 3-for-5.
