Alicia Bazonski's no-hitter leads Mount Everett softball


SHEFFIELD -- Alicia Bazonski tossed her second no-hitter of the season on Tuesday afternoon, which is good news for her Mount Everett softball team.

The better news for the Eagles -- and not-so-good news for everyone else -- is that her coach says the best may yet to come.

The junior right-hander struck out 13 and walked only one as the Eagles beat St. Joseph 3-0.

"She still has a way to go," Everett coach Kurt DeGrenier said. "She can throw harder than she's throwing right now. We have yet to see her peak."

Crusader pitcher Chanler Hospot tossed a four-hitter and struck out five, which on most days would be enough to win. But giving up three runs isn't going to win when someone like Bazonski is dominating.

Sam Hoover hit a solo home run in Everett's two-run second inning.

GREAT BARRINGTON -- The host Spartans (1-1) fell behind 3-0 right out of the gate. But in the home first, they scored 12 runs on four hits and nine walks, and never trailed again.

"I've got a lot of young players out there," said Monument coach Sarah Mead. "We played well against Drury [in the opener] and that was a confidence builder."

Aanisah Taylor went 4 for 5 for Monument and Kristen Reed added three hits.

Nikki Laudon had a three-run home run in the second inning and a double for Lee. Stephanie Young and Sara Middleton also had two hits each.

Mount Everett 11,
Housatonic Valley 10

FALLS VILLAGE, Conn. -- Leading 10-3 after 21 2 innings, visiting Mount Everett saw the hosts come back and eventually tie the score with three runs in the home fifth.

Everett's Sage Angell led off the seventh with a single. He took second on a wild pitch, stole third and scored on a one-out squeeze bunt by Erik Derwitsch.

Derwitsch was also the fourth Eagles pitcher and he got out of seventh-inning jam of his own making. Derwitsch gave up back-to-back singles to open the inning. A sacrifice bunt moved the runners into scoring position, but Derwitsch got the next two batters to ground to shortstop Bradley Lupiani and no runs scored.

Derwitsch helped his team's cause with a two-hit, five RBI day.

NORTH ADAMS -- Offense was not the problem for the Hornets. They scored 10 runs in just four innings, but it wasn't enough.

"The loss today was fundamentals, mental mistakes," coach Pat Ryan said. "We just pick it up, go back and get it Thursday."

Westfield, to their credit, hit the ball hard, compiling five doubles and a triple. McCann's lone extra-base hit was a John LeClair double.

The Hornets scored five times in the second to take a 6-3 lead, but gave up five over the next two innings. Their four-run fourth put them back on top, but Westfield put up another crooked number in the sixth to take the lead for good.

Victoria Symanski had a four-goal day for Pittsfield (1-1).

"Most of these goals, the unassisted goals, were [from] running through midfield with the ball to score," PHS coach Jenna Giardina said. "That's how Victoria was scoring, and how Lydia and Megan scored their goals. They're really good players. They know how to go to the ball."
