Softball news and notes, 4/22

For Hoosic Valley's Jen Mineau, some things never change. Although the game was abbreviated due to the mercy rule, Mineau pitched a perfect game against Cambridge - striking out all 15 batters she faced.

Although other teams (Greenwich and Schuylerville, both at 3-1) are nipping at the Indians' heels in the Wasaren, it looks like Hoosic Valley should cruise into the sectionals on Mineau's arm.

(You can read a neat feature on South Glens Falls' ace hurler Marissa Carpenter here).

In a potential Uncle Sam tourney preview, Catholic Central beat Troy in the Big 10 opener for both teams. Amanda Case belted two two-run home runs for the Crusaders and Nikki Hedrick fired a four-hitter.

Cohoes and Hoosic Valley present an interesting potential matchup in class B this year, but the Tigers get a test of their own when they take on undefeated Lansingburgh on Wednesday afternoon in Knickerbacker Park.
The Lady Knights impressively captured the Lansingburgh Invitational Tournament on Saturday, beating Averill Park in the championship game, 9-4.
Lansingburgh's Erin Glikes (pictured below) will toe the rubber against Cohoes' Courtney Galuski - two of the Colonial Council's, if not the area's, top pitchers. The Lady Knights knocked off perennial Colonial Council powerhouse Mechanicville on Monday and we will see if they can keep their win steak alive.

I watched Columbia's Dana Rizzo no-hit the Shaker Blue Bison today in an entertaining Suburban Council game. Shaker did put four runners on base (three walks and a fielder's choice) but Rizzo stranded them all. Rizzo also picked up two hits from the three-hole and Sam Chevalier and Hilary Faas each picked up two hits as well.
The Blue Devils looked pretty good defensively too - Faas made a number of strong throws from third base and second baseman Molly Higgins made a great over-the-shoulder catch in the seventh to preserve the no-hitter.
Columbia hosts Guilderland on Thursday in a crucial Gold Division game - both teams are 2-1 in the league.

Is there anything out there I'm missing out there in softball land? Drop us a line and make sure to vote in the poll too.
