She finished the season with a 6-7 mark on the mound, while the Tritons called it a season with a 19-34 record. 

Dartmouth had its bats blazing in a four-game sweep of Yale in New Haven, Conn. and the Big Green's Alexandra St. Romain (Chatham, Jr.) got her share of the action. The catcher out of Chatham High clubbed her second home run of the season, a two-run shot, in the fourth inning of Saturday's 10-1 Dartmouth win. In Sunday's 8-0 rout of the Elis, St. Romain tripled with two runners on base. The Big Green advanced to 22-17.

Gina Piserchio (West Orange, Sr.) had a good day with the bat as Felician swept a Wednesday doubleheader from Bridgeport in Stratford, Conn. She went 1-for-2 in the first game, a 7-6 victory, along with a sacrifice and a stolen base. The nightcap went to Felician, 10-9, and the leftfielder out of West Orange High went 3-for-4 at the plate, with a double and two singles, along with an RBI and another theft on the base paths. Felician is 15-27.

Swarthmore's Danielle Seltzer (West Orange, Sr.) poked two doubles from three at-bats in a 7-4 road loss to Immaculata on Tuesday. A catcher out of Newark Academy, Seltzer also walked once and scored a run. Behind the mask, she caught her crouching colleague from the Mighty Macs trying to steal third base and gunned the ball down the line in time to remove that rival from the base paths. Swarthmore fell to 19-17.

Amanda Fazio (Chatham, Fr.) pitched seven and two-thirds innings of scoreless ball on Sunday as Bucknell lost, 1-0, to Army in 11 innings in West Point, N.Y. Fazio, a Chatham High product, scattered seven hits over that span, with seven strikeouts and two walks. Bucknell is 16-28.


Notre Dame's men won the Big East Championship with victories over St. John's, 4-0, Marquette, 4-1, and Louisville, 4-0. Quentin Monaghan (Chatham, Fr.), as usual, occupied the second singles position for the Fighting Irish, where he recorded victories over St. John's Valentin Mihai, 6-2, 6-2, Marquette's Vukasin Teofanovic, 6-4, 6-4, and Louisville's Albert Wagner, 7-5, 6-3. The former Chatham High star also took turns at third doubles, where he and a teammate were victorious against their counterparts from St. John's and Marquette; his match against Louisville was halted when Notre Dame clinched the doubles point on an adjoining court. The Fighting Irish now have until May 10 to prepare for the NCAA Championship.

Melissa Mann (Short Hills, Sr.) prevailed in both singles and doubles play as Hamilton defeated Union College, 9-0, in Clinton, N.Y. on Monday.

Matt Romei (Chatham, Jr.), likewise, was a dual winner as Haverford swept Ursinus, 9-0, in Collegeville, Pa. on Wednesday. The Chatham High alum defeated Evan Lord, 6-2, 6-2, in the no. 2 singles position and worked with Matthew Cebul at second doubles to dispose of Tyler Arsenault and Dylan Marsh, 8-1.

Ari Smolyar (Short Hills, Fr.) of Middlebury pulled out victories in the Panthers' two most recent outings, a 5-4 win over Tufts on Sunday and a 6-3 win over Skidmore on Tuesday.
