Westmoreland County softball notebook: Southmoreland riding high after string of shutout wins
Wednesday, April 12, 2023 | 4:54 PM
Southmoreland picked Easter week to rise into the rankings.
Greensburg Central Catholic (5-0), meantime, bumped up a spot, to No. 2, in Class 2A.
The Centurions outscored their first five opponents 64-8.
Big games ahead
Hempfield has quite the stretch of games coming up.
On Wednesday, the Spartans will host North Allegheny in a rematch of a 1-0 loss to the Tigers.
The teams’ first matchup was shortened to six innings by inclement weather in McCandless.
Thomas, a senior third baseman, was called upon to slam the door on the Falcons. She entered the pitching circle late and earned save, in addition to going 2 for 4 at the plate.
