RANDOLPH, NJ- The Randolph varsity softball team erupted for six runs in the second inning of their NJSIAA State Playoff opener on Thursday May 17, and then cruised the rest of the way to an 8-1 win over Clifton.

Amanda Flynn had the key hit in the Lady Rams big inning, belting a grand slam to blow the game open.  Flynn went 2-for-3 at the plate, driving in five runs for Randolph.   

I am happy we got that win under our belt, and are moving on to the next round,” said Lady Rams coach Ashley Kanya.  “We are at a point in our season where every day, game, inning and at bat matter and the girls are handling it very well.”

Katie Oh was also a spark plug for the Lady Rams offense, going 2-for-4 at the plate, scoring two runs, and collecting an RBI.  Mailyn Soto and Jen Iantosca had the Lady Rams other RBI’s, while Courtney Downtain went 1-for-2, stole two bases, and scored a run.

“We're really excited and confident that we can go far, plus we've been itching to play because of the weather,” said senior Michelle McMillan, when asked about the teams’ mood entering states.  “I believe we can do really well in the state tournament. We had a great run in the MCT and proved that we can compete with any team.”

Flynn also made her presence known on the mound, where she tossed a one hitter, striking out 12 in the process. 

“Our team has a great bond, if something needs to get done on the field, it gets done,” said Iantosca, the team captain.  “Runners in scoring position score, and if the pitchers are struggling, the defense steps up. Each player on this team has an important role, and we have come together to win each game.”

Randolph has an exciting finish to the season ahead of them.  There is the state tournament in which they hope to make a run, as well as their battle with rival Roxbury down the stretch to win the conference championship.

The Lady Rams and Gaels are tied with 5-1 records in the conference, and due to rain-outs, they each have two games to play.  Interestingly, the two games they have are against each other, so it will be a true “face to face” battle for the title.  The first of the two is scheduled for this Saturday at 10 AM. 

“The team sat together at the beginning of the season to chart out our goals, and we are steps closer to two more of them,” said Kanya.  “This rain delaying things has been difficult because the girls are so eager to just play.”
