Lady Saints fall in semifinals

The regular-season has officially ended for the baseball and softball teams at College of St. Joseph. The Lady Saints  played in the Yankee Small College Conference Tournament on Saturday, May 6, and were defeated by the NHTI Lynx 9-0. They finished their season with an overall record of 7-16 and a YSCC record of 7-5. The team looks poised for good things in the future, losing only one senior after this year and bringing back a solid core to compete next season. The Fighting Saints had their last regular-season games cancelled on Saturday due to rain. They finished with an overall record of 23-21 and won eight out of their last nine games played. They were recently ranked No. 3 on the USCAA Week 4 Coaches Poll behind only Cincinnati-Clermont and WVU Tech. They will be defending their World Series Title starting on May 15 when the 2017 USCAA World Series Tournament kicks off at East Field in Glens Falls, N.Y.

The Lady Saints season came to an end on Saturday when they were defeated 9-0 by NHTI in the semifinal round of the YSCC Tournament. The NHTI Lynx got off to a hot start, tallying three runs in the first inning and CSJ  was never able to recover. The Lady Saints struggled to put their bats on the ball, putting together just one hit by Jenna Crowley throughout the entire game. Brianna Whitcomb was dominant from the rubber for the Lynx, throwing a one-hitter and only walking one as well. She also accumulated four strikeouts. The Lady Saints just simply did not have it going on Saturday and it cost them against the red-hot Lynx. NHTI went on to win the tournament against Southern Maine Community College with a final score of 7-5.

CSJ had a few notable statistical leaders on the team. Jacqueline Rossi led the entire USCAA in total steals with 36. Next closest had 32. Shelby Fenton ranked No. 4 in the USCAA in batting average, at an impressive .528. Fenton also ranked No. 3 in the YSCC for home runs with two on the season. Rossi was named to the YSCC All-Conference Team, alongside teammate Sierra Jaeger.
