ATWATER — Daylynn Penner struck out seven of the first 10 batters she faced as the Sierra sophomore softball team got 11 hits from eight different girls and made short work of Buhach Colony, 7-2.

Penner finished with a complete game, two-hitter, 11 strikeouts and no walks, allowing two runs, both unearned.

“Daylynn dominated,” Sierra head coach Bull Faulkner said. “She just goes out there, works hard, and shuts them down.”

Michaela Granada finished the day 3 for 3 with a pair of RBIs, and Jessica Lewis drove home two more.

Randi Heriford was 2 for 4 with two doubles and two RBIs.

Sierra (4-2-1) heads to Linden Friday.
