After a ten year drought from visiting the Diocesan Finals, this year’s Ss Peter & Paul’s Varsity Softball team was proud to represent against St. Gregory the Great. Unfortunately the competition was too tough to handle, even with the Knights completing an amazing three double plays in back to back innings. The hard fought battle ended in a 9-3 loss, but a fun season overall. Congratulations girls on a great year: Eighth Graders Lorena F, Jaiden M, Sophia Y & Olivia Z, Seventh Graders Abby B, Ashley D, Elizabeth F & Kennedy K. St Mary’s of Swormsville sisters Rosie & Maddie D and Carly A for playing up from JV. Thank you all for trying hard, learning every day and coming together as a team! So proud of all you all for your personal and group accomplishments this year! Go Knights!
Thanks also to Coach Young, Coach Joy & Coach Elaine

JV Softball Review 5/24/16
With the sun shining and the grass freshly cut, the JV Softball team wrapped up their season against rival St. Greg’s. The Knight’s defense started strong, with plays made by Hannah Z and Cassidy M, with support from Savannah E, Juliet T, Abby B and Oaklie Z. SSPP had trouble with the strong Cougars pitching early on with only Sophia Y and Genevieve B hitting singles. Lorena F scored on a sacrifice hit from Cassidy. Genevieve, Kennedy K and Amelia M shared pitching duties. A last inning rally scored Elizabeth F off a home run by Sophia, but was not enough to beat St. Greg’s this time.
Great season girls!
4 wins, 3 losses, infinite memories!

JV Softball Review 5/18/16
As game time approached, the Ss Peter & Paul lineup continued to shrink to eight while the field of green Nardin players grew in height and quantity. Behind Genevieve B on the mound with five strikeouts, the Knights worked hard to keep the game close, but Nardin had other plans. After loading the bases in the third, they powered a home run to center, extending their lead to 8-0. The Knights posting their first two runs in the third off doubles by Sophia Y and Olivia Z. They added five more runs in the fourth helped by a hit from Abby B and aggressive base running by Juliet T and Cassidy M. Hannah Z, Oaklie Z and Olivia Z shared catching duties for SSPP. Sophia joined the pitching team, striking out five of the next seven batters faced, holding Nardin’s lead to one going into the last inning. Nardin only added one more run with Juliet making a great out at first from right field. The Knights kicked off their rally with a triple off both Sophia and Olivia’s bats. Abby added a double scoring two runs and tying the game. With the winning run in scoring position, Genevieve hit a double to finish the Knights come from behind victory 11-9.

The clash of the Lady Knights played out on the diamond last night with Ss Peter and Paul hosting St. Amelia’s. Testing their defense, SSPP led off with Genevieve B bunting and making it to third on two over throws. Sophia Y followed with a squeeze bunt to bring her teammate home. She quickly made it around the bases and scored on a hit by Amelia M. Juliet T and Lorena F each had a hit and stolen base the following inning, but were left on. SSPP held St. Amelia’s to no runs until the fourth inning behind solid pitching from Genevieve and Olivia Z and great catching by Elizabeth F and Amelia. The Knight’s strong defense was highlighted by a rare triple play – a pop fly catch by Sophia at first, put out of the runner on first and a throw to Genevieve at third for the final out. Rolling that excitement into their at bats, Sophia crushed a triple and was hit home by Hannah Z. Olivia and Oaklie Z each had a hit and stolen base the following inning, but were left on. Savannah E, Kennedy K, Abby B and Cassidy M all got their bat on the ball but were put out at first. Going into the bottom of the last inning with the score tied, a reenactment of the first inning with Genevieve and Sophia Y was executed: bunt, steal, steal, squeeze bunt, score – Ss Peter and Paul wins an exciting victory 5-4. Awesome game girls!
