The Champlain Valley Union High School Redhawks traveled north last Saturday to complete their regular season with a double header against two separate teams.
The Redhawks started the day by falling to 1-14 after losing their first game to the Burlington Seahorses 7-1. Catherine Coulombe went 2-for-2 with a double and Eileen Gomez also rapped out a pair of hits for the Seahorses, who finished their regular season at 6-10 Holly Bachilas singled and scored while Cayla McCarthy took the loss for CVU.
The Redhawks however finished what was a disappointing season on a high note by defeating the South Burlington Rebels 10-7 in their second game last Saturday, and their final game of the year. Heather McLaughlin and Susan Parmelee recorded three hits apiece to lead the CVU offense, while Anna Supple picked up a complete-game win with three strikeouts. The Redhawks end their year at 2-14, while South Burlington finishes up at 1-15.
There were a lot of other teams busy last weekend, finishing up their schedules and trying to improve their playoff seedings.
Mount Abraham Eagles and Vergennes Commodores were in action last Friday and Saturday. The Mount Abraham Eagles split two home games to finish the year at 10-6, while the Commodores suffered back-to-back shutouts on the road to finish 3-13.
Last Friday night, in Bristol, Rachel Nelson tossed a five-hit shutout with six strikeouts to lead the North Country Falcons to a 7-0 win over the hometown Eagles. Nelson not only pitched well, but did her share at the plate too going 2-for-4 with a double. Miranda Roberts added a two-run single and Chelsea Bingham added another pair of hits and scored twice for the Falcons, who improved to 8-7 with the win. Julia Wilkinson went 3-for-3 at the plate for Mount Abe, and Julia Wilkinson took the loss despite her ten strikeout performance.
