High School Softball:
Rocco Completes Her Mission for Bishop Eustace

The Olympic Conference is loaded with talented players all trying to accomplish their individual goals for their team. No one team has totally run away from the rest in their division leaving the door wide open for each and every team to make some sort of movement toward the top. When starting pitcher Alex Rocco got the call for Bishop Eustace, her goal would be to keep visiting Pennsauken from getting batters on base as much as possible limiting any major rallies. The Crusaders’ defense were able to provide plenty of support for Rocco as Bishop Eustace posted a 5-1 victory in an inter-division match up.

So far this season, the Crusaders have won each of their games against non-division opponents and lost their only division last week. For Pennsauken, just like the Crusaders they haven’t established a winning streak or a losing streak. Alternating wins and losses has been a common theme for both of these teams and it would continue today. Bishop Eustace would get the first runs of the game during the second inning when the Crusaders scored three times. That was plenty of support for Rocco as Pennsauken would score a single run during the fourth inning to avoid the shutout.
