WYE MILLS — Potomac State didn’t have much of a problem getting players on base, but struggled to bring them around to score as the Catamounts clogged the bases with 11 stranded runners and ended their season with a 4-3 loss to Hagerstown Saturday in the Region XX Tournament at Chesapeake.
Hagerstown walked eight batters and Potomac State finished with five hits, but the Cats had the few big opportunities by leaving the bases loaded in the first and sixth. They did manage to score one run in the sixth before being retired.
Kendra Hardesty and Sydney Ouzts combined on a three-hitter for Potomac State, but two of those hits were home runs that the Hawks used to jump ahead.
Kayla Ewing connected on a three-run home run in the top of the fourth and Jenna Crunkleton added a solo shot in the sixth to account for all four of Hagerstown’s runs.
The Cats got a double and a single from Allie Lockhart and two singles from Brittani Chambers.
“This was a very hard working group of girls,” said Potomac State head coach Jim Walton. “Beginning with the successful fall season we had, the girls really wanted to build on that and came back and worked hard in the gym over the winter. Though the season ended sooner than we’d hoped, I think this team accomplished a lot.”
Potomac State finished 25-8 and as the undefeated Western Pennsylvania Collegiate Conference champions.
Cats strand 11 in season-ending loss
