RANDOLPH, NJ- While the air has remained cold so far this spring, the Randolph varsity softball team has warmed up just fine, jumping out to a 4-2 record to start their season.

“This team is very special, we have such great talent and when we are on watch out,” said coach Ashley Kanya.  “Each individual brings something to the team, and each game they all pick each other up.”

The Lady Rams showed that talent right from the start, when they blasted Parsippany Hills 14-4 in their season opener behind a 3-for-4, two RBI performance from Michelle McMillan, who also scored four runs herself in the game.

Emily Spingarn went 3-for-3 with three RBI, and Captain Jen Iantosca batted 2-for-3, also knocking in three runs.  Amanda Flynn struck out 13 batters to earn that season opening win.

A tough, last inning, 3-2 loss to Montville followed, but Randolph bounced back with another big win over West Morris by a score of 12-2.  McMillan, Katie Oh, Alexis Shaunessy, Mailynn Soto, and Emily Spingarn collected two hits apiece in that game.

Spingarn, ( 3 RBI’s ) Shaunessy, Iantosca, and Flynn ( 3 RBI’s ) all belted home runs to help power the offense.

“I think the team is really coming together, we are happy with our play and where we are right now,” said Iantosca.  “We have make sure we don't beat ourselves, and if we don’t I think we have a chance to do something big. We have hit well and our pitching is good, we just have to be smart on defense as well as at the plate.”

In the Randolph Challenge Tournament on Saturday April 14, the host Lady Rams added two more wins to their record, besting Morristown 3-0 and Madison 12-3.  The tournament is in its 27th year, and the 2018 version saw 18 teams from the area converge on Brundage Park for the day, all playing two games each.

In the Morristown game, Alexis Kemp went 2-for-3 with an RBI and scored the games’ first run, while McMillan ripped a solo home run over the right fielders head for Randolph’s second run of the game.

Against Madison, McMillan had a monster game, hammering two more home runs and collecting six RBI’s on a 3-for-4 batting performance. Lyndsay Danais, Kemp, Oh, Soto, and Spingarn all had two hits, with Oh and Spingarn also posting two RBI’s apiece.  Spingarn tossed a two hitter over six innings, striking out 8 to earn the win.

“For our program this tournament means a lot; we really love what this day is about, great competition, great softball, and a lot of fun,” said Kanya.  “This year we put out donation buckets for Athletes vs. Crohn’s & Colitis which is an organization we found through one of our players who actually suffers from Crohn's disease.  She is an amazing young lady and an awesome athlete, and our hope was to support that and create awareness.”
