Fri. S.J. girls' roundup: Lupton sets Absegami mark

Posted: April 27, 2012

Kelly Lupton continued Absegami's assault on the school softball record book on Friday, becoming the Braves' all-time RBI leader and pitching a two-hit shutout in an 8-0 victory over visiting Millville.

Lupton's solo home run in the third inning of the Cape-Atlantic League game boosted her career RBI total to 77 - eclipsing the previous mark of 76 set by Shannon Houston in 1994.

Lupton, a senior righthander who became Absegami's all-time strikeout leader on Tuesday, added to her record by fanning a dozen batters.

On Wednesday, Becca Maguire set the Braves' single-season homer mark with her seventh blast.

Also in the Cape-Atlantic, winning pitcher Brittany Scott drove in the go-ahead run with a fifth-inning sacrifice fly, as host Buena edged Sacred Heart, 4-3.

Burlington County. Anna Reed pitched a two-hit shutout and Sydney Worek tripled in two runs in the second inning, sending Florence to a 2-0 home win over Bordentown.

Taylor Cowan went 3 for 5, including a home run, three RBIs, and two runs scored, and Juliette Stockton scored four times to help host Holy Cross outslug Willingboro, 15-10.

Colonial. Junior Jenna Hohenberger struck out nine in pitching a one-hit shutout, and Alex Pio drove in two runs with a pair of singles for host Overbrook, which extended its winning streak to five by blanking Haddon Township, 4-0.

Alex Astorga pitched a five-inning no-hitter, as host Gateway put away Paulsboro early, 10-0, behind three RBIs from Erin Kirkbride and two RBIs apiece by Allie Brady and Alyssa Blemings.

Tri-County. Allyson Turner struck out 10 and limited Salem to four hits, and Linda Brostowski batted 3 for 4 with four RBIs to make host Clearview a 10-2 winner.
