More softball…..

We neglected to mention this item in our softball coverage earlier, so we’ll do that now.

It comes from the colleges, and not only has Mount Si High School’s current crop of softball ladies had to work games in around bad weather, one MSHS grad and her college team are also having to do the same.

That would be 2013 Wildcat alum Tamarra Crowe and her teammates with Massachusetts’ Merrimack College’s squad. Since returning from their Florida trip two weeks ago, Merrimack has seen several games postponed due to weather, and yesterday, the Warriors began the process of making all of those games up.

Merrimack played two with conference – and in-state – rival Stonehill, in nearby Easton, MA, and left with a sweep of the twinbill, and Crowe aided the winning efforts in both games.

Crowe, a senior center fielder from North Bend, was 0-2, but walked and recorded a putout defensively for MC in their 11-0 five-inning win in the first of the pair of contests, then in the nightcap, she was 1-4 with two RBI’s pacing the Warriors’ 8-2 victory giving them that doubleheader sweep. Merrimack, with the win, moved to 15-5 on the season in the New England-10 Conference of NCAA Division II, and Crowe is holding her own, hitting .203 thus far with one homer and nine RBI’s. She is only one of four players on the Merrimack team who have hit homers thus far this season.

The two games yesterday were makeups from postponed games about 10 days ago, and the team will not play again until this coming Tuesday, as they make up two more games with Stonehill that were postponed from earlier this week. A weekend set tomorrow and Sunday with Vermont’s St. Michael’s has also been postponed, with no word on when those games will be rescheduled. Additionally, the team has games with New York’s St. Rose and LeMoyne also to make up; doubleheaders with those two schools last weekend were also postponed. So Merrimack’s going to have a lot of catch-up to do before this season is over.
