Women’s college softball
Ancilla softball wins 3
Unusual weather calls for unusual events. Due to a rainout earlier in the week and the full schedule of all teams in the MCCAA Western Conference, Ancilla College hosted Glen Oaks Community College in a tripleheader and won all three games in five innings by scores of 8-0, 12-1, and 9-1.
In the first game, the host Chargers jumped out to an early 4-0 lead and Plymouth alum Marissa Sullivan threw a three-hit shutout while striking out four to key the victory. Courtney Clark was 3-doe-3 with two RBIs for Ancilla.
Game number two saw Ancilla score eight runs in the first inning. Brianna McClellan and Stephanie Lamm pitched a combined effort for the win. Katherine Grady was 3-for-3 with an RBI, while Emily Wilbur and Sullivan added two hits each. Sullivan finished the game with three RBIs, including a two-run home run.
Ancilla fell behind 1-0 in the first inning of game three, a game in which the Chargers played the role of the visiting team on their home field. The second inning was a different story as Ancilla put together a seven-run frame behind a Clark pitching performance that scattered five hits and struck out four. Kayla Dell had two hits for Ancilla and drove in two runs. Kayleigh Schroder also added two RBIs.
It was the first time in the history of Ancilla College softball that any team has won three games in the same day.
