The Lady Wolverines traveled to Seneca Valley and defeated the Raiders on Wednesday afternoon by a score of 10-0. The game was halted via the Mercy Rule after 5 innings due.
Ariana Garroway led the offense by going 3-3 with a homer, 2 singles, and 5 RBIs. The home run was her first of the over-the-fence variety at the Junior High level. She also scored twice.
Natalia Greco doubled, singled, and drove in a run. Anna Ferrucci rounded out the 2 hit club with 2 singles and scored twice. Winning pitcher Addy Nardone singled, scored twice, and drove in a run while Zoe Maine and Maura Agostinelli also contributed singles. Maine also added 2 RBIs. Taylor Covert scored twice, and Dia Neupauer also scored for the victors.
Nardone tossed a no hitter as she cruised through 5 innings striking out 10 and walking just 2. The dominant right hander has now thrown 8 no-hit innings to start the young season.
Shortstop Greco preserved the no hitter with a spectacular play on a hard hit grounder up the middle with 1 out in the 5th. She ranged far to her left and fired a dart to Ferrucci to get the runner at first. Maura Agostinelli, in right field, gunned down a runner at second attempting to move up on an errant pick off throw.
The team will be back in action next Wednesday as they entertain the Shaler Titans in their home opener. First pitch is set for 6:00 p.m. at Stiefel Park.
