DETROIT — Andrea Elmore walked the first batter she faced.
She sent the next 18 down in order.
Anna Dixon had never hit a home run before.
By the time things were settled, she had two.
All in all, it was a successful evening for the Farmington Hills Mercy softball team Monday, as the Marlins got a dominant pitching performance from Elmore and four RBIs from Dixon in a 10-0 six-inning victory over Pontiac Notre Dame Prep, claiming the Catholic League A-B Division title.
“This is pretty big,” coach Alex Lesko said after the final, played at the University of Detroit Mercy. “This is the first goal of every season, and last year we ended up short of this. We wanted to come out here and make a statement with this game.”
