High School Softball:

Picking up the first win of the season gives a team a feeling of confidence. Getting that first divisional win obviously helps in the quest of becoming the top team in that division. For Seneca traveling to Bishop Eustace, both of these teams were looking for that first divisional victory. The Lady Crusaders were taking advantage of the situations put in front of them and scored twice in the first inning to jump out to an early lead. Four more runs scored in the second inning was more than enough for Bishop Eustace to pick up their first win of the season. Hannah Adams success at the plate contributed to the Crusaders’ 7-2 victory at home.

This is the first year the Golden Eagles from Seneca have participated in the league and they get to challenge Camden Catholic, Paul VI, Timber Creek and Bishop Eustace for the divisional title. Seneca would pick up their first victory of their program during their second game of the season when they defeated Eastern by two runs. The Eagles would not get their first win as they watched Bishop Eustace put up six runs to put this game away. Seneca would score twice in the fifth inning but the Crusaders were well on their way giving Noelle St. Claire the win. Hannah Adams doubled and tripled during the game and knocked in two runs.
