RANDOLPH, NJ-  The Randolph girls softball team celebrated the career of their four seniors in style, holding off a late charge from West Morris to earn a 6-4 victory in their annual “Senior Night” game.

The Lady Rams continue to make a strong push towards the postseason, playing well at just the right time.  The win over West Morris adds to what is now a 5-1 record in their last six games.

The four seniors on the team, Cynthia Merringer, Caroline Perlowski, Amanda Beatrice and Kelly O’Neill all play important roles on the team. First year Varsity Head Coach Ashley Kanya, a veteran of the Randolph softball program, spoke highly of the girls, stating, “These four young ladies have been my rock as I have adjusted into the role as head coach.  They are always dependable, and they have given me great advice.  They have been great leaders for our younger players.”

After a pre-game ceremony in which coach Kanya and assistant coach Kristin Torres introduced the girls with their parents, the Lady Rams came out of the gate strong to start the game.  After getting a run in the bottom of the second, they batted around in a five run third to take a 6-0 lead.

In the bottom of the second, Catcher Rachel Fennel smacked a double, and shortly after scored one of her two runs which gave Randolph the early 1-0 lead.

Starting off the third, Jen Iantosca had a single, stolen base, and scored a run to help trigger the rally that gave the Lady Rams the big lead. 

All four seniors enjoyed a big day, stepping up to make their special game a win all around.  Coach Kanya was not surprised they did, stating, “As ball players they are smart, they know the game and they know what they have to do to win.  They have made mistakes and learned from them and that is one of the biggest indicators for me that they have grown.”

Pitcher Kelly O'Neill threw four innings of no hit ball, holding West Morris scoreless, while also going 2-for-3 at the plate.

Caroline Perlowski went 3-for-3 with an RBI, while Cynthia Merringer was 1-for-2 with an RBI and two walks.

Amanda Beatrice rounded out the senior contributions with a single, stolen base, and a run scored in the big third inning.

Overall the lady Rams hammered out 14 hits, with other contributions coming from sophomore Emily Levitt who was 2-for-3 with two RBIs, Amanda Downtain with a hit and an RBI, and Rose Bollinger with a hit and a run scored.

Coach Kanya had this message for her outgoing seniors, “Remember who you are and what you stand for.  They are all great, caring young women and I don't want them to ever change.  I will certainly miss them.”
