Game Recap

Wildcats sweep Riverside as Kennihan throws her own no-hit shut out

Geena Kennihan was brilliant in the circle throwing a no-hitter to match Katie Agatucci’s feat in the first game of the double header as the Wildcats topped the Pirates 10-0. The game was halted after 3 innings by the double header mercy run rule.

After starting with two 3-up, 3-down innings Kennihan’s 0-1 pitch hit Pirate left fielder Hannah Rodgers to spoil the perfect game. Later in the inning a dropped fly ball in right field allowed another Riverside base runner but Kennihan then threw her third strikeout of the inning to end the game. She had 4 K’s on the day.

East also matched their offensive output from the first game with 9 hits in the second game. Agatucci was 2 for 2 with a triple while Kennihan and Violet Kehoe both rapped out doubles. Claire Pedersen went 2 for 2 in this game finishing the double header with a perfect 1.000 average.

The Wildcats finish the regular season with a record of 16-3 and a conference record of 11-1. Both are bests in East Chapel Hill softball history. The Wildcats can do no worse than sharing the PAC-6 conference title, assuming Northern wins out over Cardinal Gibbons on Thursday. A tie breaker for NCHSAA seeding will be needed in that event and will be determined at a later date. First round games are slated for Wednesday, May 10 at the higher seed’s home.

Game Recap

Wildcats swamp Pirates as Agatucci throws no-hit shut out

Katie Agatucci followed up her perfect game performance a day earlier with a 3 inning mercy rule shortened no hitter against Riverside. She was a single strike from back-to-back perfect game but lost a 3-2 count and Pirate catcher, Michelle Terron, became the only Riverside runner to reach base. Katie picked up 6 strikeouts along the way to the 16-0 victory in the first game of a double header.

While the ‘Cats took great advantage of 6 free passes by the Pirates their bats were still very productive, rapping out 9 hits. Claire Pedersen went 3 for 3 and Violet Kehoe went 2 for 2, both netting 3 RBIs apiece. They also ran at will once on base. Pedersen had 5 stolen bases and Kehoe had 3.

Katie Characklis nearly repeated her feat from last night’s Jordan game as she hit another inside-the-park home run. Tonight’s version was merely a 3 RBI blast, although she did collect another RBI in the first inning to end up with 4 on the night.

Other Wildcats with hits on the night; Tammie Thompson, Agatucci, Geena Kennihan and Jenny Suwanmanee.

(note – scheduling format did not allow proper home/away placement for this event,  East was the home team)

Game Recap

Agatucci Throws Perfect Game As Wildcats Defeat Jordan

Wildcat ace Katie Agatucci was more than perfect in the circle as she led Wildcats past Jordan 20-0 on Monday. Agatucci also struck out every Falcon batter, throwing only 6 pitches over minimum in doing so. She also contributed to her own cause in the batter’s box with a 2-run homer in the 2nd inning that pushed the score count to 7.

Katie Characklis led Wildcats to victory by driving in five runs. She went 3-for-3 at the plate. Characklis drove in runs on a Grand Slam homer in the first and a triple in the second. She also, in her 3rd at-bat, hit a double and was only deprived of the chance to hit for the cycle by the 3 run mercy rule.

Wildcats scored ten runs in the third inning. Wildcats scored on a double by Claire Pedersen, a single by Agatucci , a walk by Violet Kehoe, a single by Geena Kennihan, a passed ball , a triple by Pedersen, and a wild pitch.

Katie Agatucci earned the win for Wildcats with the three inning perfect game. . A Frauilu took the loss for Jordan. She pitched two innings, allowed ten runs on five hits and struck out two.

The Wildcats collected a total of 12 hits. Pedersen, Characklis, Kennihan, and Agatucci each collected multiple hits for Wildcats. Characklis and Pedersen all had three hits to lead Wildcats.

Wildcats stole eight bases during the game as two players stole more than one. Kehoe led the way with three.

The Wildcats travel to Durham tomorrow for a home and away conference finale double-header against 0-10 Riverside. East most likely will finish 11-1 in the PAC-6 and await the Northern (9-1) v. Cardinal Gibbons (7-3) home and away games later in the week to see if they will have to share the conference crown with the Ladies of Northern. If so a tie breaker will determine post-season seeding.

Game Recap

Two Wildcat Pitchers Team Up As East Shuts Out Cardinal Gibbons

The Wildcats defeated Cardinal Gibbons 13-0 on Thursday as East’s two pitchers combined to throw a shutout. Geena Kennihan struck out Michaela Coats to finish off the game. Katie Agatucci earned the win for Wildcats. She went scoreless four innings, giving up only two hits while striking out eight and walking one. Kennihan allowed one hit, hit a batter and struck out two. Alexandra Mills took the loss for Cardinal Gibbons. She tossed four innings, giving up 13 runs, ten hits, and striking out six.

After the Wildcats defense sat the Crusaders down in order in the 2nd and 3rd inning they erupted for nine runs in the bottom of the third inning. The big inning was thanks to a series of walks, errors and passed balls that plated 4 runs before a 2 RBI double by Katie Agatucci followed by a 2 RBI single by Claire Pedersen plated another 4 runs. Pedersen’s aggressive base stealing induced a throwing error and she was able to bolt from 1st all the way home to cap the inning’s scoring total at nine.

The bright spots for Cardinal Gibbons were singles by Anna Todd, Elizabeth Klavon and Stefanie Coats.

A disputed safe call on a stolen base attempt in the top of the 4th put Wildcat shortstop in an ill frame of mind. So after Agatucci dispatched the batter it was none other than SS Grace Vincent stepping in as the lead off hitter for East in the bottom of the 4th. She looked at strike one. She then fouled off the next pitch to go into an 0-2 hole. But Coach Stape (the young) had already predicted what would happen next. Grace calmly took the 0-2 pitch deep over the left field fence for a solo home run to push the run total into mercy rule country. (see photo: Vincent rounding third and high 5’ing Coach Simmons)

Next, Kayla Characklis singled and was followed by Ella Pedersen drawing a walk. Senior Jenny Suwanmanee’s ground out to short set the stage for Geena Kennihan’s 2 RBI single. She was then driven in on Agatucci’s second double of the day running the total to 13.

Wildcats had ten hits in the game. Agatucci, Pedersen, and Kayla Characklis each collected multiple hits for Wildcats. Agatucci and Kennihan each drove in three runs to lead Wildcats. Wildcats stole six bases during the game as two players stole more than one. Ella Pedersen led the way with two.

With the win the Wildcats knock the Crusaders out of the three-way tie for first place in the conference. With three games next week vs weak conference foes East appears to have wrapped up at least a share of the conference crown. If Gibbons can hang an “L” on Northern in one of their games next week it would be East’s alone. Otherwise the Ladies and the Wildcats will have to face off one more time next week to decide the #1 seed for tournament placement.

Game Recap

Wildcats Holds Off Northern For Victory

Despite seeing its four-run lead whittled down by the end, the Wildcats still held off Northern for a 4-3 victory on Wednesday. Northern scored three runs in the failed comeback on a error in the fifth, a single by Paige Williamson in the fifth, and a home run by Sarah Pleasants in the seventh.

Katie Agatucci earned the win for Wildcats. She tossed seven innings, giving up three runs, six hits, and striking out eight. Hannah Morris took the loss for Northern. She pitched three innings, giving up four runs, two hits, striking out four, and walking none.

The Wildcats 4 run third inning was started with a one out HBP on Geena Kennihan. An infield popup made it two outs before Claire Pedersen reached on an error. Katie Characklis followed that up with another base on error, which also allowed Kennihan and Pedersen to score. Grace Vincent knocked in Characklis with a double and then was promptly brought home on Kehoe’s stand-up triple. The best scoring threat the Wildcats could muster after the 3rd inning was when they got runners on 2nd and 3rd in the top of the 7th inning. But McCullen was able to pick up her second backwards “K” to end the threat.

The Ladies got on the board in the fifth inning with a lead off single. A fielder’s choice and infield pop up caused two outs and a walk put a second runner on base. A routine ground ball was bobbled and then overthrown to first allowing one Northern run to score. A single then scored the second run before a third out could be registered.

In the bottom of the 7th Agatucci faced the #9 batter as lead off and quickly dispatched her with 3 strikes. Sarah Pleasants then took a 1-0 pitch over the fence in right field to make the score 4-3. Ardent then watched 4 balls come over and walked. Two pitches later it appeared East catcher, Kayla Characklis, had bobbled the pitch and Ardent took off for second base. Characklis recovered and threw a flaming dart to shortstop Grace Vincent who applied the tag for the second out.

McCullen then took a 3-0 pitch into deep left center, hitting the fence and settling for a stand up double. The next pitch was a passed ball and McCullen, the tying run, was at third. The next pitch, to Williamson, was a shallow fly ball into center field. Kehoe’s first step slid in the still very damp ground. But the she recovered her feet and made the dash into shallow center for the out to preserve the Wildcats victory.

The Wildcats win puts them in a three way log jam atop the conference leader board with East, Gibbons and now Northern all with one loss.  East faces Gibbons tomorrow while Northern and Gibbons play each other twice next week.

The game against Cardinal Gibbons tomorrow, Thursday April 27, is Senior Day as the Wildcats celebrate their lone senior,
Jenny “The Jet” Suwanmanee.
