Swarthmore sweeps McDaniel in conference finale

SWARTHMORE, Pa. – Kathryn Riley threw a no-hitter in game two to key Swarthmore’s doubleheader sweep of McDaniel in Centennial Conference (CC) softball action on Sunday.

            The Garnet (15-22, 5-11 CC) took the opener 8-0 in six innings behind a three-hit, 11-strikeout shutout from Alexandra Zelaski before Riley held the Green Terror (13-22, 3-13 CC) hitless for the third time this season in a 4-1 victory in game two.
            Michele Perch keyed the offense with five hits.
            Four first-inning singles, including a two-run knock from Perch, staked Swarthmore to an early 4-0 lead.
            A Riley double coupled with three singles and an error stretched the lead to 6-0 in the third before single runs in the fourth and sixth set the final margin.
            A Lauren Walker sacrifice fly and Riley RBI single staked the Garnet to a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the third inning of game two.
            A walk, stolen base, error and fielder’s choice sliced the deficit in half in the visitor fourth but an RBI double from Perch and run-scoring single from Kira Kern in the bottom of the frame pushed the lead to 4-1.
            Erinne Warrenfeltz (Smithsburg, Md./Middletown) had two of the three hits for McDaniel.
