Freshman Audrey Weller hurled her first varsity game for Moorestown Saturday against host Holy Cross and did nicely,even though the Quakers lost, 8-2.
Weller struckout eight, walked four anmd looked poised foir the most part. In the third inning she gave up four hits and Holy Cross rallied for six runs.
"Overall it was good," Weller said about her pitching performance. "In the third I got a little shaky. But we collected ourselves and got out of the inning."
Camden Catholic's Laura Messina, one of the top pitchers in South Jersey, will have to wait to start her twofold campaign: a state championship for the team and 1,000 career strikeouts.
Messina, who has 803 Ks, was to start the season Friday against visiting Washington Township in an Olympic Conference interdivisional game. However, bad weather caused the contest to be postponed to May 14.
