    • Skippers take three out of four from Lumberjacks

      The SC4 softball team found Game 1 of its two doubleheaders against Alpena CC to be pretty easy.

      Game 2 of the MCCAA Eastern Conference contests was a different story.

      The Skippers took three of the four meetings with the Lumberjacks Saturday, April 8, and Sunday, April 9, at Pine Grove Park to improve to 3-5 in the league and 4-11 overall.

      Coach Ron Matthews’ squad needed just five innings to win the opener each day – 8-0 and 9-0. The Skippers fell 4-3 in the nightcap Saturday and had to hold on for a 6-5 decision Sunday in Game 2.

      Freshman Kara Collins was the winning pitcher for the Skippers in the opener Saturday as she tossed a two-hitter with five strikeouts. Sophomore Liz Renner, a Richmond grad, and Nicole Finazzo, an Anchor Bay grad, each had two hits. Capac grad Mikaela Parski and Finazzo each drove in two runs, while freshman Kaitlyn Griffith and Collins had a RBI apiece. Freshman Sarah Longuski connected on a double.

      The Skippers were held to five hits in the second game Saturday. Collins led the way with two hits; Griffith, a Richmond grad, Finazzo and Parski each had a RBI. Freshman Gabby Morgan went the distance on the mound.

      SC4 pounded out 11 hits and put up eight runs in the third inning in the doubleheader opener Sunday. Sophomore Taylor Westrick, a St. Clair grad, blasted a three-run home run. Longuski, a St. Clair grad, and Parski sparked the offense with three hits apiece. Freshman Riley Montgomery doubled in a pair of runs, while Longuski had two RBI.

      Finazzo pitched one-hit ball with three strikeouts over three innings for the win. Morgan finished up the shutout, working two innings.

      In Game 2, Collins earned the victory with Morgan recording the final four outs for the save. Alpena grabbed a 2-0 first-inning lead, but the Skippers rallied and led  6-2 heading into the bottom of the sixth.

      Montgomery (double) and Westrick drove in two runs apiece, while Griffith had a RBI and Longuski added a double.

      The Skippers return to conference play 3 p.m. Tuesday, April 11, against league-leading Oakland (7-0, 20-7) on the road.
