The New Kensington Lady Lions are coming off a doubleheader loss April 5 to Carlow University, the number one team in the country in the USCAA national Coaches' Poll. The team’s bats were silent as the Celtics shut out New Kensington, 8-0 and 1-0. Sophomore pitcher/third baseman Jenna Swank, 2-6 on the year, took the loss in the opener and sophomore third baseman/pitcher Tarra Oravec, 3-2 dropped the second game.
“Jenna and Tarra pitched well, but we couldn't get anything going offensively,” said Mike Marsili, the fourth-year head coach. “We had many runners in scoring position but couldn't get the timely hit.”
With the losses, New Kensington falls to 5-8 overall. The team remains at 3-1 and tied for second in the Penn State University Athletic Conference.
