Dukes Softball Rolls Past Northampton

The Dukes continued to pour on the runs again on Sunday with wins of 22-0 and 15-3 over Northampton Community College.  Rosalie LaGrotta picked up the win in the first game, allowing just one hit in five innings.  Freshman Marisa Holt (5-1) earned the win in game 2 recording five strikeouts over five innings of work.

Freshmen Gabrielle Castellini, Danielle Cornman, and Dina Brown all launched Home Runs in the second game of the doubleheader.  Brown finished the game a perfect 2 for 2 with two walks, scoring twice and adding that three-run blast in the second inning.  Pennsville freshmen Carly DiDonna and Casey Kisielewski each crossed the plate three times.

Sophomore Kodi Pollock added four runs-batted-in in the first game.  LaGrotta, Holt, and Millville freshman Courtney Weems added 2 RBIs apiece.  Between the two games, Castellini and Cornman combined for 12 total RBIs and seven runs scored.  Through twenty-one games, Castellini (38) and Cornman (37) are first and second in all of NJCAA Division III in total RBIs.

With the two wins, Cumberland improves to 15-6 and has won 9 out of their last 10 games.  The Dukes will look to stay hot this week with doubleheaders against Montgomery County Community (Tuesday) College, Rowan College at Gloucester County (Wednesday), and Lehigh Carbon Community College (Saturday).
