Softball stumbles in NAC final

Castleton softball advanced to the first NAC championship in program history after winning the semi-final match taking down Lyndon State 8-0, but fell to Husson in the Championship 6-0. 

            Taylor Lively threw seven strikeouts in the first game to give her 500 for her Castleton career.

            “I knew that I was close to 500 but I didn’t think I would be able to reach it before the season ended” said Lively “It felt great having it be the third out of the inning being able to celebrate with my team, it was a really great way to end my career”

            The ladies would struggle to keep the fire burning in the Championship against the lights-out pitching from Husson’s Becca McCarty who pitched a slim one hitter for the win. 

            The Spartans battled, down two runs for the first four innings, but the spark just wasn’t there for the Castleton bats.  Sophomore Kayla Daigle was the only Spartan to reach base.

            “It was a great opportunity to be a part of the first team at Castleton to compete in the NAC championship game” said Daigle “It’s an experience I will never forget, I cant wait to relive it next year”

            Three Spartans were honored for their outstanding play in the NAC tournament: Kristy Pinkham, Stephanie Sylvester and Taylor Lively.

            Castleton wraps up this season with a record of 18-21.
