Softball Advances, BB Loses in Extra Inning

Softball and baseball returned to action Thursday with games in the PAISAA tournament and the result for PC was a 1-1 split.

Softball topped visiting Baldwin, 8-2, in a semifinal (not many teams entered the tourney and PC received a first-round bye) while baseball fell to visiting Mercersburg Academy, 8-7, in eight innings, in a quarterfinal.

Junior Faith Fenton claimed the girls win thanks to homers by soph Grace Stansfield and senior Eileen Hennessy. The latter had two RBI and scored two runs. Senior Brigitte Gutpelet went 3-for-3 with two steals en route to scoring three runs.

PC's opponent in Saturday's final will be SCH Academy.

Junior Dom Toso (double, three RBI), frosh Sammy Siani (two RBI) and senior Colin Mattice (3-for-4, two runs) paced the boys, who allowed seven runs in the fifth but bounced back with two in the bottom half to create a 7-7 tie.

The team finished with a 14-9 record.
