TUCSON, AZ - The Nyack College Softball team traveled to face Saint Thomas Aquinas College (STAC) in a non-conference match where the Warriors dropped a pair of games by final scores of 3-1 and 11-1.
How It Happened:
The weather seemed to have its own idea of how the day would go causing a rain delay after the first inning of play. The Warriors huddle in the dugout wishing the rain away and it worked. Senior Richards came ready to battle at the plate going 2 for 4 with a double to the fence.
Sophomore pitcher Ashely Manage kept the Warriors within chasing distance and battled through the rainy weather. The game was tied 1 going into the 6th inning. In the end Nyack would drop the game in a very close fight to the Spartans.
Nyack had a rough start to the bottom of the first inning with the Spartans scoring 9 runs. The Warriors came back in the second inning to get their only run of the game across. The Warriors batting order scattered base hits. Freshman Davidson came up big for the Warriors getting an RBI single. Junior Rivas was seeing the ball big and went 2 for 2.
Junior Yano hit a laser to left field and ran hard to get the run across the board. Freshman Padilla also had a day at the plate going 2 for 2 with a couple of line drives to the outfield. The offense was unable to string a few more hits together to push runs across in the loss.
Nyack's Saturday home doubleheader on March 28th vs Philadelphia University has been postponed to April 3rd. Thw Warriors are next scheduled to play Caldwell College away on Tuesday March 31st in a doubleheader set for 2:30pm and 4:30pm. Visit the 2015 Warrior Softball Schedule for more info.
