Sting Celebrate Alumni

Prior to the second game of their double header against the Conestoga Condors, the Sting celebrated members of the 1978-1984 teams, the first years softball at Seneca and of OCAA Softball. The celebration saw six members come on to the field for a ceremonial first pitch, coinciding with the grand opening of Seneca Fields.

The game saw the Conestoga Condors (3-5) complete the sweep over the Seneca Sting (1-7) with a 2-0 win.

The Sting outhit the Condors during the game, but were unable to get a pair of runners home from third base. Brianna Bader reached third base in the fourth inning with the game scoreless, but an inning-ending strikeout thwarted the opportunity. Starting pitcher Amanda Van de Graaf reached third base in the bottom of the sixth inning with the Sting trailing 2-0, but a forceout at second base ended their last scoring chance.

The Condors opened the scoring in the fifth inning. Tessa May led off the inning with a walk, was moved to second on a sacrifice bunt and then came hom on an RBI single by Jenny Ciupa.

Leading by just a single run, the Condors doubled their lead in the sixth inning. Brittany Bell led off the inning with a double, moved to third base on a sacrifice bunt and scored on an error.

Van de Graaf suffered the loss for the Sting despite only allowing 5 hits and the one earned run. Van de Graaf was 2-for-3 at the plate while Bader also added a pair of singles.

The Condors were paced by Bell who went 4-for-4 with one run scored. Jensen Chapman earned the win, pitching a scoreless game while allowing six hits.
