The Cambridge Christian softball team opened the season by scoring a load of runs in two victories.
On April 19, The Warriors downed visiting Christian Life 14-4, spurred by a five-run third inning. Junior pitcher Annie KinCannon held the opponents to 0 runs through three innings en route to the victory.
“The team batted well, and we were aggressive on the bases,” commented CCS Coach Kim Aleckson.
The Warriors followed with a 22-7 win over NorthLakes in five innings April 21. CCS was down by one run after two innings, but the team took advantage of several walks in the third to open up the game.
CCS Baseball 4, NorthLakes 2
The Warrior baseball team improved its season record to 5-1 with a 4-2 road win against the Math & Science Academy April 29.
Anthony Lecceardone went the distance, giving up no walks and no earned runs through seven innings. He was aided by catcher Alex Lecceardone throwing out two base stealers, along with big catches in the outfield corners by Billy Enos and Ethan Gilman.
Alex Moses got the Warriors on the board with a slicing double to right in the first inning which scored two runs. M & S tied the game at 2-2 in the second inning, but Anthony Lecceardone’s double in the fourth broke the tie. Insurance was added in the sixth inning after Peter Maring tripled to the right-center gap, and Grant Taylor followed with an RBI single.
• On May 3, Warrior Baseball defeated PACT 6-5 in eight innings.
The Warriors have a good rematch game at home with Liberty Classical May 5, a team they got past 3-0 earlier in the season. Both CCS ball clubs then travel to NorthLakes May 6.
