On Thursday April 28th, the Cabrini softball team hosted Marian in a makeup doubleheader. In game one the Monarchs won in a rout 17-2. Sophomore Brianna Manning went the distance, limiting Marian to 3hits and striking out four in a game shortened to four innings due to the mercy rule.
The Monarchs scored 10 runs in the first inning. Bases loaded walks to Junior Mary Schantz, Sophomores Ashley Pelc and Manning, a single by Freshman Morgan Frank and a Grand Slam by Freshman Aryanna Sandusky led to nine of the first ten runs. Cabrini had nine hit batsmen, Senior Samantha Graf and Junior Mary Schantz were hit twice each, to go along with nine base hits. Sandusky added a single to her grand slam to account for five Monarch RBI. Freshmen Morgan Frank and Sara Neubecker each had singles which resulted in 3 RBI's, two of which belonged to Frank. Other Monarchs credited with RBI's were, Schantz with two, Graf, Sophomores Madison Lewicki, Manning and Ashley Pelc, Junior Kaelynn Schndler and Freshman Faith Sterling.
Game two was a much different story, as Cabrini hung on to an 8-7 victory. In the second game Marian was the home team. Manning again went the distance striking out six and being tagged for three earned runs. Defensively they pulled off another double play on a line drive speared by Manning who fired to Senior shortstop Ella Nowc, who relayed it back to Manning, who in turn tagged out the runner advancing to 2nd.
The Monarchs only mustered five hits, doubles by Manning (one of two hits) and Schantz and singles by Nowc, Graf and Sophomore Lyn Dang. Manning had 3 RBI, Schantz two, and Dang one.
