Softball & Baseball News from Down South

The softball team can be found this week in Myrtle Beach, S.C., where the girls are competing in a showcase event.

Two games Monday yielded a split, a 12-3 win over Harlan County (Ky.) and a 10-7, eight-inning loss to Bishop Watterson of Columbus, Ohio.

Freshman Madelynn Solow paced the offense with a double and three RBI. Junior Grace Stansfield (triple) and senior Abby Cohen (double) bagged two RBI apiece. Senior Faith Fenton fanned five.

Versus Watterson, senior Brigitte Gutpelet doubled twice and stole two bases, classmate Emily Zurcher stroked two hits and soph Abby Quinn drove in the run that forced extra innings.

And the big news out of Florida Monday: Penn Charter's baseball team actually was forced to play more than five innings. The Quakers still were dominant, though.

In six frames, they mercy-ruled Shady Side Academy, of Pittsburgh, 11-1, raising their record to 4-0 and their scoring advantage to 49-4.

Senior righthander Alex Cohen pitched the first four innings, throwing 33 of 49 pitches for strikes while allowing no hits and one walk.

Juniors Mike Siani and Luke Mattice fueled the offense by halving four RBI.
