Day One - Nan Harvey/Canisius Classic

The Bonnies put in a hard nosed effort today. With five possible starters out, Maureen Wells, Erin Nargi, Kristin Sullivan, Ashley Nowak and Shelly Seeger, the Bonnies pulled off a split losing to Niagara 11-1 and defeating UB 7-3.

The Bonnies are battling the injury bug but no one is playing with anything serious. Some aching quads and sore muscles are the norm for for the fall so it was great to see outstanding athletes gut through some aches and pains.

Some highlights of the day...The major highlight of the day for me watching junior Diana Phalon come back out after a tough couple innings against Niagara and help the Bonnies to a 7-3 win against UB...while dealing with Tonsillitis. Diana is one of the best competitors I have ever coached.

The day started with the debut of freshman, Jen Sansano who had a solid first outing for 5 innings against a very good hitting Niagara team.
Jen's Stats...
Innings (5), Runs (3) Earned (3), Hits (6), Walks (4) Strikeouts (3)

Another debut was of freshman shortstop Ashley Snider who had a great day at the plate...
Ashley's Stats...
AB (7), Runs (3), Hits(4), 3B(1)

We had some solid hitting from hitters up and down the lineup, although we struck out a little too often for my liking. Here are some hitting highlights:
vs Niagara...Junior Brooke Frey 2-4 with a triple
vs Niagara...Freshman Ashley Snider 2-3 with a triple
vs UB...Senior Kara Morenus 2-4
vs UB...Sophomore Jessenia Andujar 2-3 with a double
vs UB...Freshman Ashley Snider 2-4 with 2 runs scored
vs UB...Freshman Lindsay Stowell, Triple
vs UB...Senior Sam Rajski, big RBI single in 7th

So the Bonnies end the day 1-1 and play Canisius tomorrow at 10:00am to determine who will play Niagara in the championship game at 12:00pm. Let's go Bonnies!
