RANDOLPH, NJ – Things can change fast in high school sports, and the Morristown High softball team can surely attest to this.
At the beginning of the week, the Colonials were winless. On Friday, they had two wins in the bag, including one in the Morris County Tournament.
Twenty-second seeded Morristown stunned eleventh seeded Randolph 11-8 in MCT preliminary action on Friday afternoon to move to 2-7 on the campaign.
The Colonials, who play sixth-seeded Mount Olive in Wednesday’s Round of 16, fell behind 5-0 after two innings, but rallied with a pair of five run outbursts of their own in the fifth and six innings to overwhelm the Rams.
Jillian Ching and Tatum Mullins each had monster days at the plate for the winners, lacing three hits including a double apiece. Mullins led Morristown with four runs batted in.
Freshman Molly Murphy pitched seven innings, striking out one to earn the win.
