Bill Iezzi: Township Softball Makes Statement

Washington Township clobbered No. 8 Eastern, 9-1, Wednesday to send shock waves through The Inquirer's Top 10 rankings.

The unranked Minutemaids stroked 14 hits, including doubles by Christina Austin, Kylie Mullholland, Kristen Turner, Alissa Schoelkopf, Nikki Sandelier and Jessica Fanty.

Junior Steph Vuono, the Vikings' No. 1 pitcher, suffered her first loss of the season.

Schoelkopf earned her second victory of the season in two outings and is looking forward to more pitching assignments.

Abria Tinsley, a junior pitcher-shortstop, has been splitting circle duty with the team's No. 1 pitcher.

Eastern scored its lone run in the bottom of the third inning. Newcomer Stephanie Wolfrom had the Vikings' only extra-base hit, a double.

Schoelkopf's effectiveness was underscored by the fact that Eastern scored a combined 23 runs in outigns with Bishop Eustace and Winslow Township.
