Olympic. Shelby Rohrer's two-out, two-run single in the sixth inning lifted host Cherokee over Winslow Township, 2-0. Tricia Griffin shut out the Eagles despite yielding three hits and nine walks.

Cape-Atlantic. Rosie LaGrotta pitched a three-hitter in improving to 15-4, and Lindsay Dwyer keyed the Sacred Heart offense with three RBIs in an 11-1 home rout of Our Lady of Mercy.

Burlington County League Tournament. Brittany Granahan scattered four hits over seven innings and batted 2 for 3 with one run scored, helping third-seeded Maple Shade oust No. 6 seed Burlington City, 2-1.
