The Serra Catholic Eagles Softball Team defeated the Jeanette Jayhawks in WPIAL first round playoff action yesterday afternoon. 

The Jayhawks jumped to a 2-0 lead in the top of the third, however your Eagles responded in the bottom of the third when Lauren Kolenik smacked a double scoring Peyton Jaworski and Sam Andrekanic.  Maria Lamonde then then hit a single scoring Kolenik and bringing the score to 3-2 Eagles.  In the bottom of the fourth Sam Andrekanic singled home Ashley Howard making the score 4-2.  However, in the top of the fifth the Jayhawks added a run. Your Eagles quickly countered in the bottom of the fifth when Elizabeth Quatrrone demolished a pitch to deep center field scoring Maria Lamonde all the way from first and bringing the score to 5-3 Eagles. In the top of the sixth Gia Husnick stole her 21st base of the season setting a new single season record. Gia then scored on a Lauren Kolenik single, and in the process scored her 30th run of the season, setting a new single season record, and the 95th of her career, setting a new school record for runs scored.  Congratulations Gia!  Later in the inning Sam Andrekanic scored on a Maria Lamonde sacrifice fly, bringing the score to 7-3.  The Jayhawks put up two meaningless runs in the top of the seventh but the Eagles were able to put it away with a final score of 7-5.    

Sam Andrekanic secured her 14th victory of the season, while striking out 10 and walking none.  

The Eagles will face the Monessen Greyhounds in the second round of the playoffs.

GO EAGLES!!!
