There has been a new Alexa Maldonado (Short Hills, Soph.) of late. The version that was mired in a slump that saw her batting average fall to .130 has been shucked for Maldonado 2.0, which has seen the Notre Dame centerfielder hit .404 in 38 games since then. The cycle climaxed in a way on Saturday, when the Millburn High grad hit safely in five trips to the plate in a doubleheader sweep of Villanova at home. Still penciled in at the bottom of the lineup, Maldonado singled and tripled in her two at-bats in the first game (an 8-0 win), scoring twice and driving in a run. The nightcap resulted in her fourth home run and sixth double of the season. She accounted for three RBIs and scored twice as the Fighting Irish prevailed, 11-3. Yesterday, Notre Dame swept the 3-game series with a 10-0 rout of the Wildcats. Maldonado was not credited with an at-bat as she produced a sacrifice bunt and a sac fly in her two plate appearances. Notre Dame is now 38-9 overall and 15-3 in the Big East.

Ramapo's Danielle Rothenberger (Livingston, Soph.) came up to the plate with the bases loaded in the fifth inning of the second game of the Roadrunners' doubleheader with The College of New Jersey in Ewing on Saturday and proceeded to clear the bases. The Livingston High grad knocked a triple that drove in three runs in Ramapo's 5-0 victory. On the previous play, Ramapo's Rachel Wong (Livingston, Jr.) drew a base on balls with the bases loaded to bring in a run. TCNJ won the first game, 1-0, as Ramapo wasted a 3-for-3 effort at the plate by Rothenberger. Ramapo is now 23-13 overall and 10-4 in the New Jersey Athletic Conference.

Caldwell's Danielle Genovese (Livingston, Sr.) went 1-for-3 at the plate in both ends of yesterday's doubleheader with Chestnut Hill. The Livingston High grad produced a single in both games, wins by the scores of 6-0 and 5-0, that boosted the Cougars record to 35-11 overall and 21-3 in the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference.


Northeastern's John Puttress (New Providence, Fr.) was good for plenty of extra bases in Saturday's 4-1 victory over UNC-Wilmington, in the second game of a doubleheader played in Brookline, Massachusetts. Puttress slammed his first collegiate home run and tripled in three at-bats. He scored twice and picked up an RBI on the dinger. Puttress, a New Providence High alum, also knocked out a couple of singles from four at-bats in Sunday's 4-2 loss to Wilmington. Northeastern came out of the weekend with a 9-19 record overall and 2-10 in the CAA.

Williams College's Harry Marino (Westfield, Soph.) started the second game of Saturday's doubleheader at home with Wesleyan, an 8-6 win for the Ephs, and lasted five and one-thirds innings, surrendering five runs, only two of which were earned. Marino, a Delbarton grad, allowed five hits, walked three batters and struck out four. He did not factor in the decision. The Ephs are now 19-9-1 and are now 9-2 in NESCAC play.

Dickinson's Sean White (Summit, Soph.) pitched a 7-inning complete game as the Red Devils beat Swarthmore, 8-6, in the first game of a doubleheader at home on Saturday. White, who prepped at the Salisbury School, gave up five earned runs on seven hits, while walking four batters and striking out seven. He is now 2-4 this season, while the team is 8-25 overall and 4-14 in the Centennial Conference.

John Gianis (Summit, Sr.) delivered a run-producing double for North Carolina State in Friday's 8-5 loss to Boston College in Raleigh, N.C. After dropping two other weekend games to the Eagles, the Wolfpack is 26-14 overall and 9-10 in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

David Kaplow (Westfield, Sr.) had two singles from five at-bats as Drew's designated hitter in yesterday's 10-9 loss to Moravian in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Kaplow, a Westfield High grad, scored one run and drove one in for the Rangers, who are now 8-29 overall and 4-14 in Landmark Conference play.

Plymouth State's Mike Cappiello (Westfield, Soph.) hit safely in three at-bats in the Panthers' 10-1 rout of Norwich at home yesterday in the first game of a twin bill. Cappiello, a first baseman out of Westfield High, singled twice and rapped a double to drive in two runs; he also scored twice. Norwich got its revenge, 16-5, in the nightcap, in which Cappiello went 1-for-3 with an RBI. He also had a 2-for-4 game in a 6-5 loss to Southern Maine on the road Saturday. He managed a double and a single in this contest, which resulted in one RBI. Plymouth is now 6-22.

Saturday's game with Duke turned into a rare romp for Wake Forest. The Demon Deacons turned the 18-3 rout into virtual batting practice, with catcher Mike Murray (Westfield, Sr.) driving in four runs on two singles and a sacrifice fly. Wake then followed that up with a 7-1 Sunday victory over the Blue Devils, with Murray, another Westfield High product, plugged in as the designated hitter. He stroked two singles from five at bats, stole a base and came around to score a run. The Demon Deacons are now 12-31 overall and 4-17 in the ACC.

Franklin & Marshall scored three runs in the home bottom of the ninth inning to defeat McDaniel, 4-3, in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader and get pitcher Josh Gray (Livingston, Soph.) the win. Gray, a Morristown-Beard alum, faced four batters in the top of the ninth, allowed one hit and recorded one strikeout. He is now 3-2 on the season, with the team at 14-9-1 overall and 9-9 in Centennial Conference play.


Duke advanced to the final round of the Atlantic Coast Conference Championship tournament, but lost to Virginia, 4-2, in Cary, N.C. yesterday. Luke Marchese (Summit, Soph.) took care of business at sixth singles with a 3-set victory over Lee Singer, 6-4, 3-6, 6-4. Virginia is the top-ranked program in Division 1, while Duke is slotted at 17. Duke began the tournament by defeating Florida State, 4-0, on Friday, with Marchese getting past Anderson Reed, 6-4, 2-6, 6-3, at the six spot. Marchese, a Summit High product, was then pitted against Wake Forest's Zach Leslie in Saturday's semifinal round. The match was discontinued with Marchese ahead, 4-6, 6-4, 4-1, when Duke clinched a 4-0 victory on another court.


Rhode Island's Amanda Barletta (New Providence, Sr.) defeated Dayton's Chelsea Glankler, 6-4, 5-7, 13-11, at fifth singles in St. Louis on Saturday, as the Rams took ninth place in the Atlantic 10 Conference Championship tournament. Rhode Island defeated Dayton, 4-2.

Williams College polished off Bowdoin, 9-0, in Brunswick, Maine on Saturday. Nikki Reich (Westfield, Jr.) won her match at third singles over Brett Davis, 6-3, 0-6, 6-3. Lucy Marchese (Summit, Jr.) won in straight sets at fourth singles, upending Chantelle Lavertu, 6-1, 6-4. In doubles action, Reich and Kristin Alotta teamed at no. 2 for an 8-6 win over Emily Lombardi and Hannah Hoerner. Marchese and Caroline Capute enjoyed an 8-3 victory at no. 3 over Lavertu and Elizabeth Pedowitz.

Allison Tierney (Berkeley Heights, Fr.) was victorious at fourth singles on Saturday as The College of New Jersey swept Wellesley, 9-0. Tierney, a Gov. Livingston High grad, defeated Mohona Siddique, 6-0, 6-0. She also joined Karisse Bendijo at second doubles for an 8-3 triumph over Siddique and Nathalie Herman.


Franklin & Marshall's Danny Liebowitz (Westfield, Soph.) took 10th place in the Centennial Conference Championship at Stonewall Golf Club in Elverson, Pennsylvania yesterday. Liebowitz, a Westfield High grad, was only two strokes off the lead after the first round, but found conditions difficult in the second round. He carded 22-over-par 232 (74-82-76) for the event, which placed him eight strokes above the low number. Franklin & Marshall did win the team title, however, with an 11-shot cushion over McDaniel.
