CLARK, NJ - Alexa Raba earned a big milestone as a Charger yesterday, getting her 100th career hit in the Spotswood High School girls varsity softball's big win over Mother Seton. Raba had three RBIs and only allowed five hits in five innings on the mound as the Chargers soundly defeated the Setters, 14-3.

Mother Seton had a 3-0 lead by the end of the first. However, that would be it on the scoreboard for the Clark based regional high school as the Chargers scored 14 unanswered runs to win the game.

Raba walked four and struck out six as she picked up her eighth win on the mound as well as her 100th career hit. Olivia Hellerich had a strong showing at the plate, going three-for-four with a home run and 4 RBIs. Krista VanWageninge also slammed a homerun while going two-for-three on the day. Shannon Gonnella went two-for-four with 2 RBIs. Gabby Pietanza was three-for-three.

Billie Kluse came on in relief of Frost and pitched one and a third innings. Kluse went two-for-three at the plate with 2 RBIs. Bianca Ortega went two-for-two for the Setters.

The win moves Spotswood's overall record on the season to 8-1. They are 5-0 in league play. The Chargers will take on Middlesex on Thursday, April 21 in a 4 p.m. away game at Middlesex High School.
