Shock claim Summer Slam
BELLWOOD — The Ligonier Valley Shock 18U travel softball team opened is fall season by taking first place at the End of Summer Slam in Bellwood.
The Shock outscored their opponents by a combined score of 22-9. Sam Emert led the way at the plate batting .500 with four RBI, Megan DeMartino, Jackie Howell and Breanne Wallace each batted over .400, Tori Parlock batted .375 from the lead-off spot and scored five runs, while MacKayla Maust collected two RBI.
DeMartino earned one win in relief and two more as a starter for a perfect 3-0 record, yielding just two runs while striking out 12. DeMartino and Emert combined for a five-hit shutout in the championship game. Howell was voted Defensive Player of the Tournament, thanks in part to a running catch in foul territory in right field that she turned into a double play when she threw out a runner who broke for home trying to tag up.
The Shock will travel to Wilkes-Barre this weekend for the 10-team Back to School Bash.
