Former O-M coach guides Raptors to 2A semifinals
FORT DODGE — Former Orient-Macksburg teacher and coach Scott Phelps led one of the biggest upsets of the first day of the State Softball Tournament.
The unrated Ridge View Raptors (30-11) knocked off No. 6 Fort Dodge St. Edmond (26-9), 3-1, in a Class 2A quarterfinal game. St. Edmond had four errors in Ridge View’s three-run sixth inning to erase a 1-0 Gael lead.
“We had been putting the ball in play all day, then finally they had a couple breakdowns defensively and we took advantage,” said Phelps, whose wife Jackie is a graduate of St. Edmond. Jackie’s mother, Eileen Imming, remains a strong St. Edmond supporter, but changed allegiances for this contest.
