April 13: Sophomores Raeanna Dunn and Summer Lancette combined for 10 hits and six stolen bases to create a dynamic one-two punch for the Clarkson University Softball team on Wednesday, as the Golden Knights swept a doubleheader against SUNY Canton 14-5 and 4-3. The Golden Knights improved to 15-5 on the season and will open conference play on Thursday with a doubleheader against St. Lawrence University at Scott Field. In the opener Clarkson's offense was mostly quiet for the first two innings before breaking things open with an offensive barrage in the third, fourth, and fifth innings. Dunn manufactured the run almost on her own in the top of the first, starting things off with a single. She then swiped second and third before coming home on a groundout to make the score 1-0. The Knights were held scoreless until Dunn circled the bases in the third, doubling to the fence and then racing to third on an errant throw before being allowed to score as the ball went out of play. Clarkson wasn't done in the third, however, as Liz Caggiano delivered a two-run single to make the score 4-0. The Knights tacked on seven in the fourth to blow the game open. Dunn doubled home the first run and two more came around on a passed ball. A fielder's choice made the score 8-0 and Sara Armstrong plated a run with a single. Karlie Neuhausser collected her first collegiate runs batted in with a two-run single to cap the scoring and give the Knights an 11-0 advantage. SUNY Canton slugged its way to five runs in the bottom half of the fourth, with the key play being a bases loaded bomb by Jaedyn Ossont. However, the Knights would not be denied in the top of the fifth in their effort to shorten the game. Lancette drove home Dunn with a single and Jamie Bridge added an RBI double before coming home on a ground out by Kelsey Green. The first four hitters combined to go 10-for-14 with 11 runs scored and seven more driven in, as well as five stolen bases. Dunn was 4-for-4 with four runs and three steals, Lancette and Caggiano each went 2-for-3 with a pair of RBI, and Bridge was 2-for-4 with three runs and two driven in. Meg Tully picked up the win to improve to 3-3. She pitched three flawless innings before being touched for the runs in the fourth. Katie Pelton wrapped things up with a scoreless frame of her own. Game two saw a reduced offense for Clarkson, but the Knights still came away with the win. It didn't appear as if that would be the case in the early going as Shannon Dowling delivered a two-out opposite field home run in the bottom of the first, and Stefanie Miller's double in the third just stayed inside the foul line to score Chloe Solomon. Down by three runs, Clarkson chipped away with a run in the top of the fourth inning. Chelsea Elliott doubled to right-center and Caitlin Foley came on to pinch-run for the Clarkson third baseman. Kelsey Green was able to put down a sacrifice bunt to score Foley and make it 3-1. The small ball was put on hold in the top of the six as Ali Schwenzfeier hit a two-run homer to tie the score at 3-3. Three straight hits in the top of the seventh allowed the go-ahead run to come around. Dunn started things with a one-out single to left and advanced a base on a single by Lancette. Bridge's single to right allowed Dunn to score for what proved to be the game-winning run.  Lancette went 3-for-4 in the second game, and Schwenzfeier was the only other Clarkson player with a multi-hit game, going 2-for-3. Maggie Stark started for the Knights, pitching the first three innings, but it was Jamie Bridge who would earn the win, throwing four scoreless innings. Bridge didn't allow a hit, but allowed two walks around her five strikeouts.

April 2: The team has only played a little over 80 games in its history, but nevertheless the Clarkson University Softball team set a pair of new standards on Saturday afternoon when the team broke records for most runs in a game (13) and a doubleheader (24) with a 13-1 and 11-4 sweep of crosstown rival Potsdam State. The Golden Knights improved to 13-5 overall while Potsdam dropped to 6-10. Clarkson hopes to open its home portion of the schedule on Wednesday when it hosts Cazenovia College at Scott Field. Clarkson was scoreless in the first while the Bears pushed one across, but the lead for Potsdam would be brief as the Knights poured on the offense in the next three innings. Clarkson tallied four in the top of the second, with the first two coming on a Raeanna Dunn two-run single. Jamie Bridge singled up the middle to plate the third run and Liz Caggiano drove in the fourth of the inning with a hard struck single in the infield. Though that would be all that the Knights would need in support of starting pitcher Jamie Bridge, the team still tacked on nine more runs in the next two frames. Bridget Woolley doubled home a run and Dunn added another run-scoring single to make the score 6-1 before Summer Lancette singled home two more runs in the third. In the top of the fourth, Woolley delivered another RBI-single and Lancette drove in three more on a double to left-center. Bridge picked up the win in the opener by allowing just a single hit through four innings and striking out five. Maggie Stark came on to pitch the final frame for the Knights. Lancette finished 3-for-3 with five runs driven in, while Sara Armstrong also was 3-for-4 with two runs scored. Chelsea Elliott, Woolley and Dunn each had two hits, with Dunn scoring three times and driving in three more. The Knights appeared to be prepared to keep the offense going in game two when they scored twice in the top half of the first.  Liz Caggiano doubled home a run and Chelsea Elliott forced in another run with a bases loaded walk, but Potsdam scored four times in the bottom half of the inning. The two teams were quiet for the next three innings before Clarkson rediscovered its offense. Erika Jensen singled one run home and two bases loaded fielder's choices gave Clarkson a 5-4 lead in the fifth. Summer Lancette tripled into the left field corner to clear the bases to give the Knights an 8-4 lead. Clarkson tacked on another run in the sixth, and two more came across in the seventh as the Knights' defense played well in the final few innings to keep the Potsdam bats at bay. Lancette was 2-for-4 with three driven in and two runs scored, while Caggiano and Bridge each went 2-for-5. Armstrong was 2-for-3 and was one of three Clarkson players with two stolen bases in the game, joining Raeanna Dunn and Lancette. Katie Pelton pitched the first three innings down by two runs, but came back to earn a save as she pitched the final three innings of the game. In between, Meg Tully tossed a scoreless and hitless frame to pick up the win.

April 13: A pair of late-inning rallies helped Plattsburgh State to two one-run wins in a sweep of the St. Lawrence softball team in a nonconference doubleheader on Wednesday afternoon. The Cardinals won the first game 4-3 and the second 3-2 to improve to 13-9 overall, while the Saints drop to 8-11 after the sweep. Jordan Sheridan led the Saints with a pair of hits in game one, while first-year Mylea Mann had two RBI in game two. Both Emma Gailey and Allie Courtwright took losses on the mound, as Gailey allowed four runs on seven hits with a walk and three strikeouts in the opener, and Courtwright gave up three runs on five hits with three strikeouts of her own in the second game. The Saints had 2-0 lead in game one after one-run innings in both the first and the third, as Kylee Knight scored the first run of the day when Plattsburgh dropped a routine pop fly into short right field off the bat of Kelsey Murphy. Junior Carly Dziekan made it 2-0 when she scored on a RBI single up the middle by Courtwright. Plattsburgh chipped away in the top of the fourth with an RBI single of its own and then added three runs in the top of the sixth thanks to two hits and two errors to take a 4-2 lead. St. Lawrence got one back in the bottom of the frame on a sacrifice fly by first-year Abrianna Schlickenmayer that plated Elle Gray, but couldn't find the equalizer as they stranded one in the bottom of the seventh to end the game. The Saints got opened up a 2-0 lead in game two as well, with a two RBI double to right center by Mann in the third that scored both Sheridan and Kelsey Murphy. Plattsburgh cut the home team's lead in half with a run in the top of the fifth off a muffed throw by the Saints first baseman, but the Saints were able to get two quick outs and strand a pair of Cardinals to prevent any further damage. But the visitor's led off the seventh with a triple to the base of the wall in right field and tied the game on a sac fly to center the next at bat. After a single and a fielder's choice, the Cardinals took the lead for good with an RBI single through the right side for the eventual 3-2 margin. St. Lawrence will travel to Clarkson for a Liberty League doubleheader on Thursday, before hosting RPI and Union for a pair of conference doubleheaders this Saturday and Sunday. 

April 10: St. Lawrence and Skidmore traded one-run victories in a Liberty League doubleheader on Sunday afternoon in Saratoga Springs, with the Saints scoring four runs in the final two innings of the second game to come from behind for an 8-7 win and secure the split. Skidmore won the opening game 2-1 with a walk-off run in the bottom of the seventh. With the split, St. Lawrence is now 8-9 overall and 1-1 in conference this season, while Skidmore is 9-13 and is also 1-1 in Liberty League play. In game one, Skidmore took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning on a solo home run to left center, but the Saints pulled even in the top of the second when first-year Elle Gray hit an RBI double to left center that plated sophomore Emma Reakes for the Saints lone run of the game. With two out and one runner on the in the bottom of the seventh inning for Skidmore, Saints pitcher Emma Gailey walked Karly Fishkin and then intentionally walked Dani DeGregory to load the bases. An error on a ball hit to the infield by the next batter, May-Lin McEvoy, allowed the second and winning run to score for the Thoroughbreds. The Saints outhit Skidmore in the first game seven to four, but stranded seven runners in the game. Elle Gray led the Scarlet and Brown with a 3-for-3 performance, while Kylee Knight also had a multi-hit day, going 2-for-3. On the mound, Gailey pitched six and two-thirds, allowing just four hits and one earned run, while striking out five. With the loss, the Simsbury, Conn. native is now 4-2 on the year. Gailey was also the pitcher of record in the Saints win in game two, picking up the win in a relief appearance as St. Lawrence used its full staff on Sunday afternoon. Allie Courtwright started and pitched one and two-thirds innings allowing five hits and three runs with two strikeouts before she was relieved by Hannah Sears who pitched two and a third with three hits, three runs and two strikeouts before. Gailey worked three innings to finish the game (4H, 1R, 2SO). The Saints jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the top of the second inning on five hits and one error, with runs coming across on a two-RBI single up the middle by Gray and then an RBI sacrifice and single by Kylee Knight and Madison Yarborough, respectively. Skidmore responded with three runs on four hits in the bottom of the frame and took a 6-4 lead with three more runs in the bottom of the fifth. In the top of the sixth, Knight tied the game for the Saints with a two-out, two-RBI double that plated both Elle Gray and Jordan Sheridan before she was thrown out trying to advance to third. Skidmore added another run in the bottom of the sixth to regain the lead at 7-6, but an RBI double by Courtwright and an RBI single by Carly Dziekan in the top of the seventh gave the Saints their eventual 8-7 edge and the win. Of the team's 10 hits in game two, Mann, Courtwright and Gray each had two apiece, while Knight led the Saints with three RBI in the contest.

However that was the only run the Saints would score for the rest of the game.   Cardinal senior Morgan Anderson went five and one third innings, striking out three and allowing one earned runs.   Offensively Fisher led the Cardinals from the batter's box, going 2-3 with two RBI's.   Game 2: Plattsburgh 3, St. Lawrence 2   Facing a 2-1 deficit in the top of the seventh inning, Plattsburgh State Head Coach Stephanie Conroy made the decision to insert Fisher, coming off a solid game one performance, as a pinch hitter to lead off for the Cardinals.   Well that decision proved to be huge as Fisher smacked a triple to right field to get the Cardinals rallying. Nicole Cast then flied out to center field, scoring Fisher and knotting the game at 2-2.   Plattsburgh wasn't quiet done yet. After Kelsey Gage reached on a fielder's choice, the Pine Bush N.Y. native stole second, giving teammate Kaitlyn Preiss a chance to give the Cardinals the lead.   Preiss did just that when she singled through the right side off of Saints pitcher Allie Courtwright, which scored Gage from second base.   The Cardinals had to turn around and play defense in the bottom of the seventh behind sophomore pitcher Katie Pitkin, who went all seven innings.   Pitkin was dominant in her matchup with St. Lawrence, only allowing three hits, giving up one earned run and striking out six batters.   With the two wins the Cardinals sit four games above .500 at 13-9, while the Saints fall to 8-11 overall.   Plattsburgh will be back in action on Friday as it hosts the Brockport Golden Eagles at Cardinal Park at 3 p.m.

Offensively the Cardinals came out of the gates swinging, scoring five runs in the first two innings compared the Oneonta's one.   A quiet third and then three runs in the fourth and four runs in the sixth would cause an eight run rule to take effect and end the game in the bottom of the sixth innings.   Cardinal freshman Amy Glashoff was on third when Red Dragon pitcher Amanda Graziano let one loose and allowed Glashoff to score to end the game.   Cardinal sophomore Katie Pitkin went five innings on the mound, fanning three batters and walking two.
