The Lake Mills baseball team earned its first victory of the season with an 11-0 nonconference win over Marshall at Campus Field on Friday.
The L-Cats (1-2) scored seven times in the second inning and Caleb Belling went 2-for-3 with three RBI. Andy Carpenter also drove in three runs in the five-inning game.
"We started the week facing some really tough and talented teams," Lake Mills baseball coach Justin Annen said. "Columbus and Prep are very solid and we didn't play our best game in either. We are much better than what we showed in those outings.
"I was happy how we responded versus Marshall. We were focused and played with an edge. We need to keep growing as we are a young team. There are a lot of games in a short time period so we need everyone to be ready and play their role."
Elijah Lee earned the decision, working four shutout innings, striking out seven while allowing two hits and walking three.
Belling and Caleb Quest both had run-scoring doubles in the second inning.
Lake Mills travels to face Poynette on Thursday at 5 p.m.
