Scots’ softball rolls into CCS playoffs

Scots' softball rolls into CCS playoffs

[media-credit id=15 align=”alignnone” width=”300″][/media-credit]The Lady Scots finished their regular season on a very high note, as they defeated the top two teams in the Peninsula Bay Division, and earned themselves a respected second place finish in this tough division.

On Tuesday, the Scots showed their determination against Capuchino, as they came back from an early 2-0 deficit, and won the game 4-2. Senior Megan Hansen broke the 2-2 deadlock in the bottom of the 6th inning, with a two run single to right field. This was all pitcher Aurora Stottler needed, as she finished the game with three scoreless innings in relief and earned a well deserved win, which improved her season record to 7-0.

On Thursday, Carlmont played a very strong Hillsdale team, who defeated the Lady Scots 3-1 earlier in the season at Hillsdale. The Scots knew that they would have their hands full this game because of Hillsdale’s star pitcher Jordan Richwood, who is one of the best pitchers in the CCS and has recorded a remarkable 309 strikeouts on the year. This seemed to not have bothered the Lady Scots, as they went on to upset Hillsdale 7-6. Melissa Pekarek pitched a strong 3 1/3 innings in relief as she slowed down the Hillsdale bats until the last inning. Hillsdale rallied back from a 4 run deficit in the top of the 7th, and cut the Lady Scots lead down to a run. Stottler came into the game and cleaned the mess by retiring the last two batters and wrapped up the Lady Scots best win on the year.

Carlmont will be rolling on all cylinders, and look to make some noise in the Division I CCS playoffs.
