Ancilla ties record with 22 wins
Through the springtime mist that was on and off all afternoon, the Ancilla College softball team persevered to pick up a doubleheader sweep over Kellogg Community College by scores of 4-1 and 3-2.
Courtney Clark led the way for Ancilla, pitching all 14 innings for the Chargers, allowing no earned runs all day. Clark scattered 11 hits while striking out six to earn wins nine and 10 on the season.
Ancilla scored in the first inning of game one when Kaitlyn Dreibelbis led off the inning with a single to left and reached second on an error. One batter later, Kayleigh Schroeder knocked her in with a single of her own, giving the Chargers a 1-0 lead.
Kellogg tied the game in the top of the third, but Ancilla took the lead for good in the bottom of the fourth with two runs of their own. Gretchen Gieseking led off the inning with a single, but was thrown out between second and third on Clark’s single. Clark moved to second on a Courtney Ferrell ground out and scored on a Rohni Beck single. Beck would later score on a misplayed fly ball off the bat of Kayla Dell.
The Chargers added an insurance run in the sixth. With two outs in the inning, Dell singled and scored on a double by Emily Steele.
Schroeder finished with two hits for Ancilla, while seven other Chargers each had a hit.
Ancilla needed a dramatic comeback in game two to pull off the victory. Kellogg scored in the first and fifth and held to their 2-0 lead until the bottom of the sixth.
Gieseking led off the sixth with a double and scored on a Clark single to make the score 2-1. Pinch runner Trisha Dillon moved to second on an illegal pitch and stayed put when the next batter, Savanna Weaver walked. Both runners moved up one base when Beck executed a sacrifice bunt. With one out in the inning, Dell lofted a sacrifice fly to center which scored Dillon to tie the game at two. Weaver moved to third on the throw and scored on a wild pitch to the next batter.
Ancilla went through a hair-raising seventh inning on defense when four Kellogg runners reached base, but solid defense by the Chargers held on for the victory.
Ancilla finishes the first half of Michigan Community College Athletic Association (MCCAA) Western Conference play at 9-7 and currently sits in a tie for third place in the conference. The Chargers move their overall record to 22-8, tying the most wins all-time in school history set in 2005.
The Chargers are back in action outside of conference on Tuesday for a 3 p.m. tilt against South Suburban College. They return to MCCAA West competition on Thursday when they take on NJCAA No. 11 Muskegon Community College at 3 p.m. in Donaldson.
