S. Jersey Girls: Tues. S.J. girls: Millville's Etter scores 300th

Posted: May 08, 2014

Before the season, Millville girls' lacrosse coach Claudia McCarthy didn't think Corrine Etter would reach 300 career goals. Etter entered her senior year with 213, but she tends to get double- and triple-teamed.

Once the season started, though, Etter started scoring.

"She was easily scoring five or six per game," McCarthy said. "Then I knew there was a chance it could happen."

Etter had another one of those five-goal games on Tuesday, and she netted No. 300 41/2 minutes into Millville's 16-13 loss at Ocean City in a Cape-Atlantic League matchup.

She poured in four more and now sits at 304 for her career. She is the fifth player in South Jersey history to reach 300.

Etter, who will play for Philadelphia University next year, is also McCarthy's granddaughter. McCarthy said Etter began playing lacrosse in third grade in a youth travel league with teammate Megan Hoffman, who recorded her 200th goal last week.

Valaniece Martin and Alexis Sutley each deposited four goals for Ocean City.

Burlington Liberty. Peyton Sventy had a game-high seven goals in Rancocas Valley's 17-6 win over visiting Cinnaminson.

Paige Maino added five goals.

Softball

Heather Visco belted her 100th career hit in host Hammonton's 8-2 win over Vineland in the Cape-Atlantic American.

Visco notched No. 100 on an RBI single in the sixth. She joins Morgan DiVello as active Hammonton players with 100 career hits.

Cape-Atlantic National. Lauren Dwyer picked up the win in the circle and four hits at the plate for Buena, which trounced Lower Cape May at home, 19-1. Dwyer knocked in two runs. Samantha Monfredo was 3 for 4 with a home run and four RBIs.

Colonial. Zeaenna Brackett smashed her 100th career hit in Audubon's 8-1 road win over Woodbury. She reached the milestone in the first inning.

Olympic American. Michelle Sachais allowed just one hit in Cherry Hill East's 5-0 shutout of visiting Shawnee. Kaitlyn Konopka had the lone hit for the Renegades in the top of the sixth.

Nonleague. Jenna Montana allowed no earned runs on three hits for Bridgeton, which rode an eight-run fourth inning to a 12-2 win over visiting Atlantic County Tech. Montana struck out five.

Callie Forzley struck out 10 in seven innings to help Moorestown win a 2-1 pitchers' duel at Burlington City. Losing pitcher Brielle Morichetti also went the distance and struck out 11.

Erynn Sobieski scattered three hits and struck out 10 for GCIT, which defeated host Deptford, 12-2. Taylor Favinger was 3 for 4 and scored twice. Brandi Chester had two hits and two runs.
