HS softball playoff action

Tottenville 23 – Lehman 0: With several of its players unable to play due to advanced placement exams, Lehman traveled to Staten Island on Thursday, May 22, shorthanded and unable to withstand the hitting onslaught of the Lady Pirates.  Alyssa Corvino struck out 11 Lady Lions and allowed just one hit in five innings of work, as Kaitlyn Flynn slammed a two-run home run off Domenica Regina (5 IP, 20 H, 16 ER) in a hitting clinic that eliminated Lehman from the playoffs.  Clinton is the only team remaining in the A Division playoffs. 

Forest Hills 29 – Columbus 3: The Lady Explorers did not fare too much better in the B Division with Tenesha Crawford (4 IP, 22 R, 7 BB) struggling in the loss. 

Morris 17 – Long Island City 13: With Gompers and High School of American Studies also losing in the playoffs, Morris supplied some much needed relief in the Bronx, with Jacklyn Valdez (2-for-5, 1 R, 3 RBI’s, 1 2B, 1 3B), Jenny Hernandez (2-for-5, 1 R, 2 RBI’s), Stephanie Diaz (1-for-3, 2 RBI’s, 1 3B, 3 BB), and Michele Tolentino (7 IP, 8 H, 13 R, 4 K’s) leading the way in the victory.  Morris, ranked #21, will have its hands full when it faces HS of Construction in B Division 2nd round action. 

Jane Addams 9 – Frederick Douglass Academy 7: Liliana Lopez (2-for-4, 2 R, 3 RBI’s, 2 2B), Nicole Madera (2-for-4, 2 R) and Jocelyn Marin (1-for-3 2 RBI’s) provided the offense to propel Niover Lantigua (7 IP, 8 H, 7 R, 9 K’s) and the 19th ranked Lady Jaguars into the 2nd round against the #3 seeded Flushing team. 

Evander 25 – Queens HS of Teaching 9: Franelba Pena (2-for-4, 2 R, 2 RBI’s) and Josephine Estevez (3-for-5, 4 R, 4 RBI’s) slammed home runs to push the Lady Tigers (10) into 2nd round action against Boys & Girls High School. 

Riverdale/Kingsbridge Academy 16 – HS of Health Professions 4: Janelyn Witkowski (2-for-3, 2 R, 3 RBI’s), Kandace Coston (2-for-2, 3 R, 2 RBI’s) and Nelyssa Rosario (1-for-2, 2 R, 2 RBI’s) provided the run support and Dylan Prill (5 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 2 K’s) held things down on the mound, as Riverdale/Kingsbridge, the #2 seed, advances to take on Beacon High School in the 2nd round of the B Division playoffs this week.
