The Varsity softball team defeated Marist 1-0 to end their regular season in thrilling fashion!  Outstanding pitching by Natasha Sherrod and great defense by the entire team held the War Eagles at bay throughout six scoreless innings.  In the top of the seventh inning, with two outs and the bases empty, Rebecca Ponce de Leon hit a towering HOME RUN over the center field fence for a 1-0 lead.  The Lady Lions held in the bottom of the seventh for the victory.  Early in the game there were several outstanding defensive plays.  Dylan Krause raced to the left field line and held a Marist player to a single, keeping her out of scoring position.  Rebecca Ponce de Leon completed an unassisted double play by catching a line drive and stepping on first to double off the runner.  Second baseman Natalie Corso later fielded a ground ball, tagged the runner, and then threw on to first to complete the double play.  Becca Schaaf raced deep into center field to catch a drive by Marist.  Way to go Lions!

With a regular season record of 18-9-1, and a region record of 6-0, the Lady Lions finished in first place in Sub-Region 5A.  Our first game in the Region Tournament is September 30th versus McNair.  Let's Go Lions!
