April 24: Heading into the biggest weekend of the year with plenty of playoff implications, the Clarkson University Softball team built a little momentum with a split against SUNY Canton on Friday afternoon, dropping the first contest 6-4 prior to winning the nightcap 8-7. The Golden Knights moved to 18-9 overall, tripling their win total from last season, while SUNY Canton saw its record go to 10-17. Clarkson jumped on top in its first at bat, rallying with two outs on a walk by Jamie Bridge and a single by Chelsea Elliott. Ali Schwenzfeier then singled to center to send Bridge home with the first run of the game, but the Knights lead would be short-lived as SUNY Canton's Shannon Dowling ripped a two-run double to give the Kangaroos the lead. The first batter of the top of the second, Erika Jensen, tied the game up 2-2 when she hit a solo home run to left. Canton scored a run in the third and another in the fifth for a 4-2 lead, but Clarkson responded with two in the top of the sixth. Jensen second on a grounder that ricocheted into the outfield off the first baseman's glove and then Katie Scott came home on a fielder's choice as Katie Pelton eluded a tag between second and third. The Knights rally would not be enough, though, as Canton scored twice in the bottom half of the sixth and then wiggled out of a jam in the seventh to gain the win. Jensen finished 3-for-4 with a pair of runs and Schwenzfeier was 2-for-4 in the opener. Katie Pelton took the loss, allowing only five hits and no walks over six innings. In game two of the doubleheader, both teams found their offense early on once again. Clarkson scored twice in the first when Raeanna Dunn and Summer Lancette both reached and then executed a double steal. Dunn then scampered home on an RBI groundout from Jamie Bridge and Lancette scored on a sacrifice fly from Schwenzfeier. However, Canton's Shannon Dowling hit a three-run homer to center to quickly take the lead. In the second, Clarkson scored two more runs as Katelin Ferguson reached on a fielder's choice and came home on an error and Dunn followed with a sacrifice fly to plate Alycia Short. Canton tied it in the bottom half of the second, but the bats went silent for the next two innings. Things got going again in the fifth for Clarkson as the team scored three times. Dunn led off with a triple and then was sent home on a Jamie Bridge double. Schwenzfeier singled home Bridge and Chelsea Elliott scored on a sacrifice fly by Jensen. SUNY Canton hit back-to-back homers in the fifth to tie the game up at 7-7, but that momentum would not carry over into the following innings. Clarkson needed just one more run to pick up the split, and did so in the seventh inning. Summer Lancette doubled to center to start off the frame and Elliott's double to right-center sent her home easily with what proved to be the winning run. Lancette finished with three hits in four at bats and scored twice, and Dunn, Bridge and Elliott each added two hits apiece as the top four hitters in the lineup combined to go 9-for-14 with six runs scored and four more driven in. Pelton had a no-decision after going the first three innings, and Bridge gained the win by closing out the final four innings, striking out four and allowing four hits.

April 11: Both St. Lawrence and the Clarkson University Softball team leaned heavily on their aces today and the two teams came away with a split as St. Lawrence won the first game 2-1 while the Golden Knights came away with a 9-1 victory in a six-inning contest. The Golden Knights saw their record move to 11-4 overall and 1-1 with their first conference games of the season, while the Saints are now 7-6 overall and 1-1 in the Liberty League. Clarkson will get Sunday off but starts a busy week of games on Monday with a doubleheader against SUNY Canton at Scott Field. Bridge lived up to her end of the bargain in what was expected to be a pitchers' duel in the opener as she struck out six of the first seven hitters she faced, but St. Lawrence's Kyle Plimpton was just as good and held the Knights scoreless through the first three frames. Clarkson got on the scoreboard first in the fourth inning when Chelsea Elliott led off the inning with a single to right-center and advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt. Erika Jensen then delivered a single to left-center to plate Elliott and give Clarkson a 1-0 edge. St. Lawrence responded with a brief offensive outburst of its own in the bottom half of the inning. Brady Cooper singled up the middle and advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt, but that proved unnecessary as Emma Reakes blasted a home run to left to give the Saints a 2-1 lead. Neither team mustered much offensively the rest of the way and Clarkson never really threatened again, as only one hitter reached base (a two-out walk in the seventh) in the final three frames. Bridge suffered her first defeat of the season, striking out nine with no walks and only five hits allowed in six innings, while Plimpton gave up four hits and four walks but struck out 10 in a complete-game effort.  In game two, both pitchers took to the circle again but the fatigue from the first game was evident. After a combined 19 whiffs in the first game, the two combined for just six strikeouts in the second contest. The Saints scored in the bottom half of the first when Aisha O'Connor delivered a two-out double to start the late rally, and Reakes sent her home with a single to give St. Lawrence a 1-0 lead. It was the last run that the Saints would get as Bridge relied more heavily on her defense in game two yet still allowed only four hits in the contest. The same could not be said for Plimpton, who was rocked for 12 hits and three walks while only striking out two. The first runs the senior would allow came in the top of the third on a two-out, two-run double from Jensen. In the fifth, Clarkson scored another run when Summer Lancette led off with a walk and circled the bases on a double by Elliott. But the big inning came in the sixth as Clarkson tallied six times. Katie Scott and Bridge each singled, but with two outs the rally looked like it could be snuffed out. However, Lancette laced a triple to right-center to score both runs and give the Knights a 5-1 edge. Lancette then scored on a single by Elliott, and after another hit and a hit by pitch, Plimpton was done. However, her line wasn't finished as Ali Schwenzfeier cleared the bases with a hit to push Clarkson up 9-1. Despite allowing one hit in the bottom half of the sixth, Bridge finished the game unscathed and Clarkson earned the split. Bridge went 3-for-4 in the second game, while Elliott, Schwenzfeier and Scott each went 2-for-4. Elliott drove in two and scored twice and Schwenzfeier drove home three.

April 11: First-year Emma Reakes hit a two-run homerun – her third of the season – to help the St. Lawrence softball team to a 2-1 come-from-behind win over Clarkson in the first game of a Liberty League doubleheader on Saturday afternoon. The Golden Knights took the second game 9-1 in six innings to earn a split on the Saints Softball Field. All the runs in the first game came in the fourth inning, as Clarkson jumped out to a 1-0 lead on an Erika Jensen single to left center that plated Chelsea Elliott in the top half of the frame. Senior Brady Cooper led off the bottom of the fourth with a slap single up the middle and advanced to second on a sac bunt down the third base line by fellow senior Aisha O'Connor to set up Reakes. The Brewerton, N.Y. native fought off a pair of pitches from Clarkson pitcher Jamie Bridge before ripping a line drive over the wall in left center to put the Saints in front for good, 2-1. Reakes and Cooper led the Saints with two hits each in the first game, while Kyle Plimpton earned another complete-game victory for her senior campaign. She allowed just four hits and one run while striking out 10 to improve to 7-3 on the season. In the second game it was the Saints who struck first, as Aisha O'Connor started a two-out rally with a double to left center and Reakes followed with a single down the left field line that scored O'Connor for the Saints only run. Reakes drove in each of the Saints three runs on the afternoon. Clarkson used 13 hits; including three for extra bases to build a 9-1 lead through the last four innings. The visitors took a 2-1 lead in the top half of the third inning on a two-run double by Jensen and never looked back. They added one in the fifth and six in the sixth to put the games eight-run rule into effect. Golden Knights' pitcher Jamie Bridge shut down the Saints on the mound, allowing just four hits and recording four strikeouts in game two, but she also lead her team at the plate; with a 3-for-4 game in the leadoff spot. Plimpton threw five and two-thirds innings in the loss, while first-year Emma Gailey closed out the sixth inning for St. Lawrence. After the split, the Saints are 7-6 overall and 1-1 in Liberty Games, while Clarkson sits at 11-4 overall and is also 1-1 against conference opponents. St. Lawrence will play host to Skidmore on Sunday, April 12 for another Liberty League doubleheader. The first pitch is schedule for 1 p.m.

Mar. 14: After trading runs with Western New England in both the fourth and eighth innings, the St. Lawrence softball team was able to capitalize on a throwing error and push home a run in the bottom of the ninth to win 3-2 and earn a split on their first day of competition in Clermont, Fla. First-year Emma Reakes led off the bottom of the ninth for the Saints, while classmate Jacqueline Dufour started as the runner on second for the inning. Reakes hit a slow roller toward the mound and Western New England pitcher Heidi Grieger fielded it cleanly, but she put the throw in the dirt and it skipped behind her first baseman; allowing to score all the way from second. "I'm really proud of the way the girls played this afternoon," Head Coach Elisa Van Kirk said. "That was one of the most fun games I've been a part of as a coach. We did all the little things we needed to do to get runners on base and find a way to win – everyone contributed, it was a team victory." St. Lawrence came-from-behind on two different occasions and didn't lead until Dufour came around to win the game. Western New England took a 1-0 lead in the top of the fourth inning on a double by Alexis Bukowski, but first-year Kylee Knight plated the Saints first run of the season in the bottom half of the frame with a single to center field that brought Kelsey Murphy around to score and tie the game at 1-1. In the top of the eighth inning the Golden Bears regained the lead on a run by Jocelyn Agnelli, who started on second for the visitors. In the bottom half of the inning, with the game on the line, Knight hustled down the line to beat out a throw from short; earning an infield single and advancing runner Carly Dziekan to third. Senior Aisha O'Connor then hit a hard ground ball to second that took a wild hop over the second baseman's glove and into short left field, scoring Dziekan to force the decisive ninth inning.   Senior pitcher Kyle Plimpton struck out 14 in the win for St. Lawrence. She was also the pitcher of record in the Saints first game of the day; a 2-0 loss to Babson. Both of Babson's runs came from a triple by Madison DiNaso that split the St. Lawrence outfielders in right center and rolled to the wall. Despite outhitting the Beavers 7-4, the Saints left nine runners on base in the contest. Babson worked out of a bases loaded jam in the top of the fifth to keep the Saints off the board. Jordan Sheridan got the Saints started with a slap single to shallow right field; Kylee Knight followed with her second hit of the day – also to right. Aisha O'Connor walked to load them up, but Kelsey Murphy popped out to short and Jacqueline Dufour struck out swinging to end the threat. Plimpton was also the pitcher of record against the Beavers; striking out eight. At the plate, each of the first-year students (Knight , Kelsey Murphy, Dufour, Reakes and Laura Finley)  recorded a hit on their first day of collegiate competition, as Kylee Knight led the Saints with a combined five hits on the day. She and Finley both recorded three hits in the second game win. The Saints will continue their Florida schedule with games against Wesleyan and Macalester at 5:00 and 7:00 pm, respectively, on Sunday afternoon.

April 11: A big inning in each game of today's SUNYAC doubleheader was enough to power SUNY Oneonta (14-6, 3-1) to a sweep of the SUNY Potsdam women's softball team (3-16, 0-8) on Saturday afternoon. The Red Dragons broke open game one late for a 9-1 win and jumped out early for a 14-0 win in game two.   In the opener, Oneonta took a 2-0 lead in the bottom first on back-to-back RBI singles from designated player Traci Lichtenstein and shortstop Marlene Cuevas. Bears freshman pitcher Meghan Dougherty (East Greenbush, N.Y./Columbia), making her first collegiate start, settled in over the next three innings and held the Red Dragons in check. Potsdam sophomore shortstop Jordan Ott (Hilton, N.Y./Hilton) cut the lead in half with an RBI double that scored pinch runner Rachel Grefke (Livonia, Mich./Clarenceville) in the top of the third. The score remained the same until the Red Dragons broke out for seven runs on seven hits in the bottom of the fifth.   Dougherty (1-1) allowed eight earned runs on 14 hits, while walking one and striking out one. Freshman pitcher Jaime Hoskins (Fairport, N.Y./Fairport) pitched a third of an inning. Sabrina DeAngelis (8-3) went the distance for Oneonta, allowing a run on six scattered hits and striking out seven. Ott finished the game 2-for-3.   The Red Dragons scored all 14 of their runs in the second inning of game two, with nine RBI's coming on five extra-base hits. Sophomore second baseman Alexis Lerman (Fayetteville, N.Y./Jamesville-DeWitt) went 2-for-2 for Potsdam, while Ott and senior center fielder Kayla Taylor (Keeseville, N.Y./AuSable Valley) also had singles.   Hoskins (1-8) was roughed up in 1.1 innings, allowing eight runs on eight hits. Junior pitcher Carina Chirinko (Fairport, N.Y./Fairport) allowed four earned runs on five hits and four walks over the next 1.2 innings. Dougherty closed out the game allowing just one hit in her inning of work.   Rachel Hitt (5-3) earned the victory with three scoreless innings pitched. She allowed two hits, while striking out two and walking one. Julia Simpson pitched two hitless innings and recorded two K's and a walk.   The Bears return to Maxcy Softball Field on Tuesday with the hopes of finally getting in their home opener against Plattsburgh. The Cardinals come to town for a pair of games at 3 and 5 p.m.

April 10: SUNY New Paltz (10-7, 3-1 SUNYAC) out-homered the SUNY Potsdam softball team (3-14, 0-6) 6-4 to take both games of a doubleheader on Friday afternoon. The Hawks took game one 14-5 and then held off the Bears 9-8 in 10 innings in game two. Sophomore shortstop Jordan Ott (Hilton, N.Y./Hilton) was 3-for-6 on the day with two home runs, four runs scored and three RBI's.   The Bears started quickly in game one as Ott led off the contest with a home run to center field. However, New Paltz left fielder Juila Perhacs answered in the bottom of the first with a leadoff homer of her own. The Hawks broke the game open in the bottom of the second with nine runs. The big blow came on a Nicole DeCosta grand slam with two outs to make it 10-1.   The Bears got a run back in the top of the third as Ott scored on a ground out. Two innings later junior pitcher Carina Chirinko (Fairport, N.Y./Fairport) doubled in sophomore right fielder Noelle Rufa (Helena, N.Y./St. Lawrence Central) and junior catcher Katie Marsman (Wantagh, N.Y./Wyoming Seminary) followed with a two-run bomb to cut the deficit to 10-5. New Paltz struck for its last four runs in the bottom of the sixth and it was DeCosta blasting a three-run shot to put the exclamation point on the win.   Chirinko (1-7) allowed seven runs on two hits and four walks in the first 1.1 innings. Dougherty closed out the last 4.1 with seven runs, three earned, on eight hits, while striking out one. Hawk hurler Erika Trainer (1-1) went the full six innings for the win. She allowed three earned runs on six hits and recorded seven K's and two walks.   The nightcap was an evenly matched slugfest. New Paltz scored a run in each of the first two innings, highlighted by DeCosta's third homer of the day. The Bears loaded the bases in the top of the third and freshman catcher Lauren Brace (Moriah, N.Y./Moriah) crushed an 0-1 pitch to left center field for a grand slam. Freshman center fielder Lyndale Nephew (Plattsburgh, N.Y./Seton Catholic) followed with an RBI single that scored junior second baseman Alexis Lerman (Fayetteville, N.Y./Jamesville-DeWitt) and Potsdam led 5-2.   The Hawks rallied to take a 6-5 lead in the bottom of the fourth as Fallon Spriggs and Kiersten Carlomagno each hit home runs. Lerman scored on a ground out RBI from sophomore first baseman Erin Murphy (Kingston, N.Y./Kingston) and the game was tied after four and a half. Spriggs hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the fifth and New Paltz led 8-6. Ott stepped up again in the next frame, belting a two-run shot that scored Rufa and the game was tied again.   Potsdam freshman pitcher Jaime Hoskins (Fairport, N.Y./Fairport) stranded six runners over the next 4.2 shut out innings, but the Hawks broke through in the bottom of the 10th. Spriggs was placed on second to start the frame as per the NCAA rule for extra innings. Spriggs was bunted to second base and then moved to third on a fielder's choice. New Paltz pitcher Katie Rutcofsky then got her self the win with a walk off RBI single to left center to score Spriggs.   Hoskins (1-7) was solid in 9.2 innings pitched. She allowed eight earned runs on 13 hits, while striking out four and walking two. The Bears roughed up Carlomagno in the first four innings. She allowed six runs, three earned, on seven hits and struck out three. Rukcofsky allowed just an earned run in six innings and struck out four without a walk.

The Roos (10-17) took the opener 6-4 before falling 8-7 in the nightcap to the Golden Knights (18-9). Game 1 Clarkson scored once in the top of the first on an RBI single but the Roos were able to tag out the second runner at the plate to limit the damage. SUNY Canton took the lead in the bottom half of the inning on a 2 RBI double from Shannon Dowling (Oneida, NY). She put the ball in the gap in left center to score Kaleigh Foran (Fort Ann, NY) and Stephanie LaValley (Champlain, NY).

The Roos regained the one run advantage in the third when Rhea Coad (Wheatfield, NY) grounded out, but Foran advanced on an error and scored. SUNY Canton extended its lead in the fifth. Rachel Thornhill (Heuvelton, NY) led off with a double to left field and moved over to third on a sacrifice bunt by Kristyn Reynolds (Malone, NY). Thornhill scored on the next at-bat as Foran grounded out to second. Clarkson scored a pair of unearned runs in the top of the sixth to knot the game at four. The Roos quickly responded in the bottom of the sixth when Coad led off the inning with a double. Ashley Merritt (Watertown, NY) pinch-ran for Coad and Stefanie Miller (Latham, NY) singled to center and advanced to second on the throw. Merritt would score on a passed ball and Sharlow helped her own cause with a one out sacrifice fly to left to plate Miller. The Knights had the tying runs in scoring position with two outs in the top of the seventh but Sharlow shut the door fielding a grounder and firing to first to end the game. The freshman threw seven innings giving up just two earned runs. She walked four and struck out four. LaValley, Coad, Thornhill and Dowling all doubled in the game and Dowling led the way with 2 RBI.

March 29: Just one day later Kelsey Morgan (Central Square, NY) recorded the second Roo no-hitter in as many days. The freshman fanned eight batters in a complete game, 11-0 shutout.
