Waterford-Loudonville Christian; Softball Standings, 5/7/08

Great game today in Loudonville. Waterford slugged three home runs against Loudonville Christian- two came from third baseman Jamie VanBramer, who also made a great over-the-shoulder diving catch to end the game.
The Lady Fordians held on for a 13-9 Central Hudson Valley League victory, leaving Waterford alone atop the CHVL standings.

But it wasn't a cakewalk for Waterford. They jumped out to an early 7-2 lead after two innings, but allowed the Eagles back in the game when Loudonville scored five runs on a string of singles (one batter was hit by a pitch in that sequence). This tied the game at seven.
Other than Jillian Thomton's RBI triple in the bottom of the seventh, the Eagles did not have an extra base hit -but they still put nine runs on the board.

Waterford fell behind in the bottom of the sixth when the Eagles pushed across the go-ahead run. But Waterford's Emily Giroux got things rolling with an RBI fielder's choice, Katie McGreevy followed with a two-run single and VanBramer crushed a huge home run over the short porch in right field.
(Loudonville coach Carrie Hagwell, an admitted Red Sox fan, calls the fence "our Green Monster." - By my guess, the fence is about 125 feet from home plate and 15 feet high. I would've been aiming for it too. But Hagwell said she's seen very few balls go over it, so toady's power display was out of the ordinary.)

Anyway, it was a very entertaining game and VanBramer summed it up with what she called the Lady Fordians' motto after the game.
"The motto at Waterford is that we never give up," VanBramer said. "Never give up. Even when we're down, we just have to keep going."

Below are the most recent section II softball standings that we have been able to put together.
If you have any corrections or updates, feel free to send them along.
The latest state rankings should be released tomorrow - check back for those. I expect Shen and Mechanicville to move up and Troy could crack the top 20 after their recent hot streak.
