Sam Fletcher went 5-for-5 from the plate, while teammate Maddy Flynn added three hits in the win.
“We hit the ball very well,” Peru coach Jason Brown said. “Our defense played strong, too. That’s what we needed for this upcoming stretch. We have a tough one (today) with Plattsburgh High. Hopefully this is a good start to the rest of the week.”
Kara Barber, Kelly Neenan and Brittany Miner all added two hits each.
Megan Kilroy led the Red Storm at the plate with a triple.
