Softball: Nadia Kemp goes deep twice in John Jay win

By

Nadia Kemp started the game with the first of her two home runs to set the tone as the John Jay High School softball team coasted to a 16-1 triumph over Arlington in Freedom Plains on Tuesday.

The game was halted after five innings due to the 15-run mercy rule.

“Nadia is our leadoff hitter for a reason,” John Jay coach Bonnie Schilling said. “She’s consistent and a spark plug. She sets the tone and the rest of the team follows her.”

Kemp was 3 for 4 with three runs scored and three RBI.

Gabby Bracchi was 3 for 3 with three runs scored, and Andrea Varvara singled, doubled and scored three runs. Megan Theiller added two hits and a run scored, and Erin McHugh doubled, scored a run and drove in two runs.

Winning pitcher Vicky Lattanzio, who contributed a hit and two runs scored, allowed three hits and struck out four.

The Patriots play district rival Roy C. Ketcham Thursday at 7 p.m. at the East Fishkill Recreation Park. John Jay won the previous meeting between the two clubs this season.

“I thought it was a nice win to put under your belt before playing Ketcham,” Schilling said.
