Bill Iezzi: Happy & Sad Softball Coaches


Cherokee coach Nicole Lum was beaming after her softball team beat host Camden Catholic, 3-1, Thursday.

Lum liked the efficiency with which her team played, especially since Christine Watson, a captain, pitcher and left fielder was out, sick.

Gina Gryniuk took Watson's place in left, junior Carolyn Griffin pitched a four-hitter and junior second baseman Krystine Rice scored two runs.

Also impressive was Cherokee's defense, which committed only one error as opposed to five in a previous game with Eastern.

Meanwhile, Camden Catholic coach Mavreen Hering was unhappy about the way her defense allowed five errors.

"We came out with our heads in outer space," Hering said. "Routine plays, three to short, one to first and one to left, you can't make five errors against a team that can hit like that.

The Chiefs stroked seven hits and expanded their winning streak to six.
