DIVISION II QUARTERFINALS

June 6: No. 4 Sanborn 2, No. 5 HB 1

Hollis Brookline ace Ashley Skey went the distance, scattering seven hits, walking one and allowing two runs.

Unfortunately for the fifth-seeded Cavaliers (13-5), her strong effort in the circle was matched by her counterpart, as fourth-seeded Sanborn (15-3) held on for a 2-1 Division II quarterfinal win.

The Indians’ defense was strong, led by freshman left fielder Paige DeRosiers, who made three outstanding catches to prevent runs from scoring, while their offense was paced by junior catcher P.J. Ross, who hit a solo home run in the bottom of the sixth.

HB’s offense was able to put something on the scoreboard, led by Skey (double, two walks), Victoria Sargent (one hit), Kenzie Day (one hit) and Stephanie Buchanan (one hit).
