Going, going, gone!: Geringer hits four home runs, Eagles clinch share of Heart title

Going, going, gone!: Geringer hits four home runs, Eagles clinch share of Heart title
Central Methodist first baseman Lauren Geringer has held the Eagles’ career home run record since the middle of her sophomore year. It took just 18 home runs to set the program’s new record.
For more than two years, every home run she has hit has added to her own record, much like when Babe Ruth broke his own Major League record 576 times before finishing with 714 career home runs.
Geringer added to her home run total on Thursday when Central Methodist traveled to Missouri Valley for a doubleheader. The Central Methodist senior blasted a total of four home runs in the two games — two home runs in each game — and led the Eagles to a doubleheader sweep of the Vikings.
