RANDOLPH, NJ- On Monday May 1, the Randolph high school softball team honored their seniors in a pre-game ceremony that included each players parents and most influential teachers.  The Lady Rams made the night complete by following that up with a win on the field, defeating Hopatcong by a score of 3-0.

“These young women have been great role models for our younger players- they understand what is expected of them and what I expect of all the players in this program,” said coach Ashley Kanya.  “They have all been with me for three years and helped me get started building the program in what I want it to be- they love the game.”

Each player was introduced with their parents, and walked onto the field to be recognized.  They also had their favorite / most influential teacher attend to be honored as well.

The four seniors have all contributed to the teams successful season, in which they have posted a 9-5 record so far.

“They have all meant a lot, said Kanya.  “Kristen is a rock, so reliable on the mound, and has a great personality as a leader.  Amanda has been awesome in the outfield contributing greatly to the defensive success.  Karina, although it’s her first year on Varsity, has been a great asset when she was healthy for her speed.  Gina, also a first time varsity player, has been huge as a utility player.” 

When the game started, it was a closely played pitchers’ duel.  The Lady Rams took a 1-0 lead in the first, and added two more in the bottom of the fifth for the final 3-0 tally.

Lindquist threw seven innings, allowing only three hits and striking out five in the shutout win.

At the plate, the Lady Rams did just enough, getting a two RBI double from Gina Russo, and an RBI double from Amanda Iantosca.

With the season entering the home stretch, Kanya had some words to share with her soon to be graduated seniors.

“I will miss this group of girls because I have known them for so long,” said Kanya.  “They are bright, have wonderful potential, and have helped me to build this program. I wish them nothing but success as they move on to the next stage, and want them to know that I will always support them.”
