Softball takes home two more wins

T he Horde varsity softball team is on a roll.

The girls didn’t give Hoosick Falls an inch Monday night with a 16-0 win, their fourth in a row.

Though the game started off slow with a scoreless first inning, things picked up in the second, and by the third the girls made nine runs to the Panther’s zero.

“Gabby Hilder and Katie Leavey led the way with three hits a piece,” Coach Katie Barber said, while Angela Vladyka went 2-3 with a double. Hilder also had a double.

Hannah Bassett once again showed off her pitching skills along with Vladyka.

“Hannah Bassett won third straight outing and combined with Vladyka for the three hit shutout,” Barber said.

In the fifth and final inning, Lauryn Zovistoski hit a three run double off the fence, and Barber said she also played excellent defense with six outs during the five innings, including a double play.

For the Panthers, Rachel Pine, Frankie Pearson and Olivia Schneider all had singles.

This victory comes days after a 5-2 win over Hoosic Valley last Thursday.

The girls started off with a few runs in the first two innings and got two more in the sixth. Amy Baker kept up the action with two singles, one double and an RBI, while Jordan Harrison had two singles and an RBI.

Zovistoski had the Horde’s only triple and a single, and Nicole LaPlante added a single to play. Bassett had four strikeouts and no walks when she was pitching.

Barber said the girls were looking at a tough week ahead hosting Tamarac on Wednesday and Schuylerville on Friday at 4:15. They also have a double header in Maple Hill on Saturday.

The girls are now 4-0 in the league and overall.
