On Friday Buxbaum continued to show her skills at the plate. With 2 outs and 2 strikes in the final inning, the Lady Vikings had the bases loaded and were down 2-1, Buxbaum sent the 1-2 pitch over the center field wall for a grand slam, securing the first career varsity win for sophomore Rebecca Peirce. It also improved Baxbaum’s batting record for the day to 2-3 and 4 RBIs. Jones also went 2-3 including a double that scored a run. The Lady Vikes defeated Burleson Centennial 5-2.
