When Trina Rennie (Short Hills, Sr.) scored a goal early in the first half on Monday, Kenyon went up 3-0 on Birmingham Southern and the sailing was smooth in Alabama.

Kenyon then hit the road back to Gambier, Ohio yesterday after defeating Guilford, 16-13, with Rennie scoring twice and earning two assists.

Nolle, a Delbarton grad, worked out a second-place finish in the 1,000-yard freestyle, which he swam in 9:06.61 (against a winning 9:03.37), to go with third-place efforts in the freestyle at both 1,650 yards (his 15:23.26 against a winning 15:14.83) and 500 yards (his 4:25.67 against a winning 4:20.11). The third-place finishes both provisionally qualified Nolle for the NCAA Division 1 Championships, later this month.


Kaitlin Zampino (Millburn, Fr.) pitched a complete game 3-hitter as Franklin & Marshall defeated Hood, 9-1, in Virginia Beach last Saturday. The Millburn High grad helped her own cause by driving in two runs with a pair of hits. The Diplomats are 2-2.


Montclair State's Sam Politan (Livingston, Jr.) drove in two runs last Saturday in two plate appearances, neither of which registered as an official at-bat, in a 14-5 victory over Rhodes. Politan entered the game in the seventh inning as a pinch hitter, with the Red Hawks down, 5-3, and drew a base on balls with the bases loaded for his first RBI. In the eighth inning, he lofted a sacrifice fly to left field that brought in a runner from third base. 

North Carolina State's John Gianis (Summit, Jr.) went 5-for-8 in a 2-game series against Radford earlier this week in Raleigh.
