CLEAR SPRING - After starting the season with two losses, the Clear Spring softball team has rebounded with a four-game winning streak, the latest coming Wednesday when the Blazers edged Hedgesville 7-5 on a cold and windy afternoon.

Megan Simmons got the complete-game win for Clear Spring, allowing one earned run and six hits while striking out eight.

"It was really cold and I was just trying to throw strikes," Simmons said. "I had my team behind me the whole time. They kept me up and they kept my confidence high."

Stacey Yeakle had an RBI triple and an RBI double for the Blazers (4-2). Amy Mills and Karen Worthington also had two hits.

"Under tough conditions, Megan Simmons threw well," Clear Spring coach Drew Michael said. "She just needs to get a little bit more confidence."
