Clermont Fla. – The Geneseo softball team (4-8) wrapped up
its spring trip with a 6-5 loss to Elmhurst (4-1) Friday. The Knights won three
of eight games during their week in Florida.
The Knights scored five runs over their first two at bats, but were held to just two hits over the final five innings. Those hits were back-to-back singles by first year shortstop Samantha Brown (Canton/Hugh C. Williams) and junior first baseman Samantha Trapasso (Garden City/Garden City) with one out in the seventh, setting Geneseo up with the tying and go-ahead runs on base. The Cardinals turned a game-ending double play to escape with the win.
Junior outfielder Lexi Williams (Waterford/Shenendehowa) doubled in two runs in the first inning and Trapasso cleared the bases with a three-run double. Trapasso and Brown both had a pair of hits.
Sophomore catcher Ashley Fillmore (Getzville/Williamsville North) scored two runs.
Sophomore Nicole Zimmerman (Canandaigua/Canandaigua Academy) allowed seven hits in a complete-game effort.
The Knights open the northern portion of their schedule Friday, hosting Plattsburgh in their home and State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) opener.
