of Scoring Hurts Liberty
By Ted Waddell
LIBERTY April 18, 2000 -- Despite a lot of effort on the mound and
five hits in Fridays Orange County League (OCL)
National Conference Division II softball game, the home
team Lady Indians (02, 02 OCL) were defeated
4-0 by the Lady Hambletonians of Chester (13,
11 OCL). The win was the first of the season for
the Lady Hambletonians.
While freshman pitcher Katie Yaun doesnt cast a
very long shadow from the mound, she heated up the
afternoon with spurts of fire across the plate. Although
her teammates need to work on their base running skills,
the Lady Indians recorded five hits. Scoring singles
were: Ashley Harris, Marissa Rivera, Carly Sklar,
Meredith Symanski and Katie Yaun.
The scoring was all Chester, as Meg Hipsman crossed the
plate in the fourth inning, Jamie More in the following
frame and in the sixth it was Michelle Kraese and Hipsman.
My girls played with a lot of heart, said
Lady Hambletonians coach Ned Roebuck. They made
very few errors, and thats a drastic improvement
According to Liberty co-coach John Wilhelm, his team
played pretty well overall
difference was we didnt score any runs, and
thats been our story since the start of the season.
Katie Yaun pitched a complete game, added
Wilhelm. Shes only a freshman, so that gives
us something to look forward to this year.
Taking to the field this season on the Lady Indians
varsity softball team are freshmen Andrea TerBush and
Katie Yaun; sophomore Michelle Olson; juniors Jacquelynn LaBagh, Michelle Maxwell, Marissa Rivera and Tiffany
Teichs; and seniors Ashley Harris, Kerry Noetzel, Jessica Perno, Carly Sklar and Meredith
Sharing the pitching duties will be Yaun, Olson and LaBagh.
