Lady Jags Repeat as 4A West Champs After 10-0 Victory Over BCC

May 22, 2018

On the way to their second straight 4A West Regional Championship, the Lady Jags did what they’ve done all season. They piled on hits and let their outstanding sophomore pitcher lead the way as they shut out Bethesda Chevy-Chase 10-0 in six innings.

   The Jags came into the game with a record of 16-2, after vanquishing Clarksburg and Quince Orchard in the first two rounds of the postseason, while the Lady Barons had a record of 12-6 coming off of wins over Whitman, and Einstein on route to the regional title game.

   The Lady Barons could not quite figure out how to get on base against Northwest’s Amber Yuille, who allowed just two hits, one walk and struck out seven Barons batters. The sophomore sat down nine of the first ten BCC batters through three innings, allowing just a walk in the first inning.

   Meanwhile, the Lady Jags got hits in bunches from the opening pitch, when leadoff batter senior Chloe Hickman reached on a base hit. She was followed by senior Karlie Stanford who doubled to left, which was followed by a pair of singles from sophomores Kayla Qassis and Jayln Durand.  Qassis’ hit would score two runs to give the Jags a 2-0 lead. Qassis would score on a sacrifice hit by junior Alex Karamihas, while Durand would be brought home after a groundball by Yuille. The Jags would exit the first inning with a four-run read.

   The Jags would get two more runs in the third inning to take a 6-0 lead before BCC were able to earn their first hit in the top of the fourth inning.  BCC senior Julia Dimmick would smack a double to left-center, but she would get no further than second base.

   In the bottom of the fourth, the Lady Jags would get another run when Stanford worked a four-pitch leadoff walk and was eventually brought home by a sacrifice to first base by Karamihas to give Northwest a 7-0 lead.

   In the top of the fifth inning, the Barons threatened when sophomore Rachel Kamis reached second base hitting a double to centerfield. However, BCC could not get a rally going to bring her home and remained scoreless.

   Northwest took advantage of another leadoff walk to post another run in the bottom of the fifth, as sophomore Megan Ridenour worked an eight-pitch walk and was brought home by a Chloe Hickman two-out single to make it 8-0 Northwest.

  The Jags scored two more in the bottom of the six after Qassis and Durand reached on base hits and later scored on hits by Karamihas and Yuille to get to the ten runs and end the game.

   The win marks the fourth time in six years that Northwest has won the 4A West title. The Jags advance to the Maryland State Semi-Finals and will face the 16-4 Howard High School, who defeated Blair High School 2-0 on Monday.

   The Lady Jags were supposed to play with no days rest, but the rain has forced the game to be postponed. They will play at 7:00 pm, Wednesday, May 23, at Bachman Softball Park in Glen Burnie. A win will put the Lady Jags in the Maryland 4A State Championship Game at the University of Maryland on Saturday for the second straight year.
