Softball In Full Stride
ADPi, Rebec-Hilyard Pitchers
Duel in Best Games of Week
By BARBARA STEPHENS
At last the weather has cleared up so that six of the sched
uled softball games could be played this week. With these
games, we have gained a better idea as to who will be some of
the most outstanding teams of the season. There is only a
few weeks left for the scheduled games to be played, and the
top teams in each league are racing towards the final game.
Decidedly the best game of the
week was played Thursday night
between ADPis and the Rebec
Hilyard combination. Three runs
were scored during the whole game
by the Rebec-Hilyard team and
none by the ADPis. Two of the
three runs were made in the sec
ond inning due to errors. The game
eonsisted principally of a pitching
duel between two top pitchers for
each team. Phyllis Byers, pitching
:or Rebec-Hilyard, has a fast spin
oall that put one batter after an
other out. The pitcher for the
ADPis was Evelyn Stephens who
out over a hard fast ball on the
nside of the plate that was hard
:or any batter to connect with.
Seth of these excellent pitchers
supported by equally good caten
as, ADPi Jean Villair, and Melliss
Schneider for Rebec-Hilyard.
This Rebec-Hilyard team has al
ready won their league, and shows
oromise of being the winners of
the whole tournament. They have
won all of the games in their
league by a good margin.
The laugh of the week was on
Alder lodge who was discovered to
oe playing with 11 players in the
field Tuesday in a game with the
AOPis. During that game, AOPi
Jean Carkin made a beautiful hit
out to left field that kept the in
ligfclers busy trying to get a hold
on the hall for some time.
The wettest game that has been
played this season was between
I he Sigma Kappas and Gamma
Phis during a downpour Wednes
day afternoon. After standing out
in the rain 5 minutes both teams
looked like they had taken time out
lo go swimming in the millrace.
The Sigma Kappas were led to
(heir victory over the Gamma
Phis by their pitcher-catcher com
bination of Jacie Bogan and Eliza
The Kappas lost their game to
Highland house by a large score,
but they did have one of the best
ffiSt base players, Alysone Hales,
that we have seen this term. A
good batter for Highland house
was Dorothy Dixon who hit two
two-base hits for Highland house
that brought in four of their runs.
