Former Alco star slams three homers
FREDERICK — Freshman Alexa Sivic belted three home runs to lead the Hood College softball team to a 4-1, 8-6 sweep of Elizabethtown on Friday.
Sivic, a 2012 graduate and former standout at Allegany High, hit her first collegiate homer, a solo shot, in the first game.
In the second, Hood was held to just two hits over five innings before Carly Farr and Sivic hit back-to-back homers in the sixth to tie the game 3-3. Elizabethtown led 6-4 in the top of the ninth, but Hood scored twice in the bottom of the inning and won it when Sivic belted a two-run, walk-off homer.
Hood is 3-1 after four games, and Sivic is batting .417 (5 for 12) with three home runs and four RBIs.
