Prep softball: Willmar trips up Alex


WILLMAR — Willmar scored the go-ahead run on an infield ground ball in the bottom of the fifth, and Leah Ruter pitched seven strong innings in Willmar’s 5-4 win over Alexandria in a Central Lakes Conference game on Friday.

Trailing 4-3, Megan Rudnick hit a leadoff single and stole second. She advanced to third on a bunt, and after a Kaitlyn Kienholz walk, Jordan Martins reached on an error and scored Rudnick to tie it up.
