Ellie Williams ’22 had three hits and drove in three runs to lead Mercersburg’s softball team to a 17-0 win over host Foxcroft School March 29 in a nonconference game played in Middleburg, VA.

The Blue Storm (2-2) jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the first inning, and scored 11 runs in the second to put the game out of reach early. The game was called after five innings due the run rule.

Yael Hochberg ’25 had three RBI for the Storm, which also got three hits apiece from Monique Garcia ’22 and Pritz Pritzker ’24. Catherine Shaffer ’22 contributed a double and a triple. The Storm defense did not commit an error and Mercersburg pitchers Kayleigh Linn ’22 and Quin Caretti ’24 held Foxcroft to just two hits, striking out six.

Mercersburg hosts Blair Academy Saturday, April 2, in its first home Mid-Atlantic Prep League doubleheader of 2022. The twin-bill begins at 1 p.m. on Spider Field.
