WARREN, NJ -- After losing to Scotch Plains-Fanwood in the NJSIAA Sectional Tournament on Thursday, Watchung Hills took advantage of four Raiders errors to notch a 7-3 victory in Warren on Saturday.
During the game, senior Kevin Maxwell went 2-for-3 with a double and notched his 100th career hit. He is the second Raiders player to notch his 100th hit this year. Zach Lipshitz reached the mark earlier this season. On the season, Maxwell has 28 hits, 10 doubles, and 11 stolen bases. He has scored 24 runs and leads the team with 24 RBI in 28 games.
"If I had a son who was learning how to play baseball, I'd say, 'Watch Maxwell,'" said Raiders head coach Joe Higgins. "Kevin puts everything he's got into every swing, throw, and baserunning opportunity. He'd give anything for his teammates. He respects the game, and gets a lot out of it because of that respect."
Saturday's defeat does not impact the NJSIAA tournament. The Riaders will play in the tournament semifinals on Tuesday at home at 4:00 p.m. vs. Ridge.
