Miners dig up AMAC title

Lewis leads Mtn. Ridge to back-to-back crowns

FROSTBURG — Carlie Lewis struck out 10 hitters over seven innings, sweating out the final few frames, as No. 1 Mountain Ridge snuck past No. 3 Fort Hill 2-1 at home Friday to secure their second straight Appalachian Mountain Athletic Conference championship.

The Miners improve to 13-0 overall and are 12-0 in the AMAC. Fort Hill slips to 10-6 and 8-4 in conference.

It is easily the closest game the Miners have played in this year. The smallest margin of victory they have had prior was eight runs, which happened on three occasions. It is also Mountain Ridge’s lowest offensive output of the season, six runs below their previous low-water mark of eight.

Lewis allowed four walks, and yielded singles to Sarah Lowery and Shania James, who drove in the Sentinels’ run.

Anna Broadwater and Emma Baker drove in the runs for the Miners.

Michala Garrison was a hard-luck loser, ceding one run on four hits and two walks over six innings.

Mountain Ridge plays at Northern today at 1 p.m. Fort Hill  plays at Allegany Monday at 4:30 p.m.

Hyndman    10

Rockwood    0


ROCKWOOD, Pa. — Jess Ringler’s no-hitter was broken up with two outs in the last inning, as she led Hyndman to a 10-0 win, in six innings, at Rockwood Friday.

Rockwood’s starting pitcher Samantha Emert broke up the no-hitter with a triple.

Hyndman (7-5) hosts Hancock Monday at 4:30 p.m.
