Ordinarily, I’d be frustrated with so many rainouts in a week; but given that I’m trying to catch up on off time, I definitely don’t mind that Mother Nature isn’t letting me miss much. I’m back out there today (see below), but first, take a look at my colleague Adrian Szkolar’s weekly college notebook, which focuses on the Pace softball team:
College notebook: Locals help Pace to first Northeast-10 title
Here’s what happened around the section last night:
Harrison 17, Rye 8: Christina DeCarlo went 3-for-4 with three RBIs, making her the second Husky to accumulate 100 career hits and RBIs. Jenna Webb was the first to join the 100-100 Club. DeCarlo, a fifth-year senior captain, drove in her 100th career run earlier this year. Lauren Madonna also went 3-for-4 with three RBIs.
Rye Neck 15, Hastings 0 (6 innings): Olivia Dunne struck out seven and did not allow a hit in the win. Dunne also went 2-for-3 with two RBIs. Nicole Yannuzzi added four RBIs for the Panthers. Alicia Rodriguez and Rosella Salanitro drove in three and two runs, respectively.

Thursday’s plans: I’m heading over to Brewster, where I’ll get my second look at the Bears and first-ever look at Yorktown, which is putting together a remarkable season under first-year head coach Ryan Iamurri. I’m also planning to get my column topic out of this trip, so with any luck I can kill at least two birds with stone this afternoon.
