BERNARDS TOWNSHIP – The Pingry School softball team had dropped five games in a row entering Thursday’s meeting with Delaware Valley, with three of those setbacks coming by just one run. The Terriers were the opponents that started the Big Blue’s single-run slide and Thursday they got a measure of revenge.
Junior pitcher Katie Marino finished 3-for-4 with a double and a homer, and sophomore Amanda Van Orden added a single, homer and two runs scored, as Pingry grabbed an 8-5 home victory.
“We really wanted to beat them because we should have won last time,” said Marino, whose team fell to Del Val 5-4 on April 14. “We were not going to give them an easy win this time.”
Marino turned in another dominant performance from the circle, allowing just one earned run on four hits, walking three and striking out 14, sidestepping three errors and four passed balls, three of which led to or allowed runs to scored.
