CHATHAM, NJ - The Chatham softball team is hitting its stride at the right time of the season, and hopes to take a winning streak into its Morris County Tournament semifinal against Morris Knolls on Saturday.

Another positive sign came Wednesday when the Lady Cougars defeated a feisty Randolph team, 6-1, to post its sixth straight win.

"We're all putting the ball in play," Chatham senior co-captain Morgan Pellegrin said. "The score speaks for itself because we all hit the ball hard and they made a lot of good plays. It's exciting. We've hit quite a good stretch hitting-wise and execution-wise in the field. Hopefully, we can carry it through into Saturday."

Senior right-hander Melissa Landry improved her record to 9-3 with another strong performance for Chatham (14-4), allowing a run and two hits in the top of the first before limiting Randolph (9-6) to just two hits over the final six innings.

The only shaky moment for Landry came in the bottom of the sixth inning when a foul pop landed in the dugout and startled her off the bucket she was sitting on. On the mound, Landry was unshakable and closed out the game with a 1-2-3 seventh.

The good feeling spread throughout the Chatham lineup, with five different players driving in runs. Shortstop Camryn Davies used her strong arm to back Landry in the field and contributed two hits, an RBI and a run scored. 

Leadoff batter Bonnie Kennedy tripled and scored in the second inning and Sarah Stubeck had two hits and two RBI for the Lady Cougars. Hallie Pellegrin, Sarah McCabe and Morgan Tobin each knocked in a run for Chatham.
