Skippers travel to Concordia today, open conference play
Saturday at home
The St. Clair County Community College women's
softball team looks to start another winning streak today when it travels to
Concordia University for a nonconference doubleheader.
The Skippers are
coming off a successful spring trip to Florida earlier this month. They won
their first six games before falling in the finale.
"We played well up
until the last game," SC4 Coach Ron Matthews said. "The defense and pitching was
good throughout the week.
"I was pleased with how it went, considering we
were playing outdoors for the first time."
SC4, which went 10-0 in five
scrimmages last fall, is scheduled to play its home and Michigan Community
College Athletic Association Eastern Conference opener Saturday against Henry
Ford CC. The first game of the doubleheader begins at 1 p.m. at Pine Grove
Freshmen Riley Thompson, a Richmond graduate, and Elita Wiggins of
Almont handled the pitching duties in Florida.
Matthews praised the play
of outfielders Sarah Hall, a Port Huron Northern grad, and Yale's Carly Taylor.
Hall, a freshman, is in center field and Taylor, a sophomore, plays left field.
He also said Sarah Mousseau, a freshman from Capac, turned in some good plays
defensively at shortstop.
"We hit the ball pretty well," Matthews said.
"Shelby Fridline (Almont) hit a home run on a 240-foot field that cleared a
20-foot high scoreboard by more than 20 feet. They said it was one of the
longest home runs ever hit there."
