LADY LIONS OPEN SEASON WITH SPLIT AT PENN COLLEGE

The Penn State New Kensington softball team, ranked 21 in the United States Collegiate Athletic Association takes the field for its twice-delayed home opener at 2 p.m., Saturday, April 6, with a conference doubleheader against 18th-ranked Penn State Beaver at Wolf Pack Park in Lower Burrell, Pa.

The New Kensington Lady Lions, 1-1 in the conference, continue the four-game homestand at 2 p.m., Wednesday with a Penn State University Athletic Conference twin bill against Penn State Greater Allegheny.

After weather issues forces postponement of first eight games of the regular season, the New Kensington Lady Lions opened the 2013 campaign on the road April 2 with a split of a PSUAC doubleheader at Penn College in Williamsport, Pa.  Coach Mike Marsili’s squad dropped the first game, 8-7, in extra innings before rebounding with an 8-7 victory in the nightcap. Junior pitcher Jenna Swank (Ford City High School) went the distance for the win and helped her own cause at the plate by going 2-4 with an rbi. Swank’s battery mate, freshman catcher Rachel Rojas (Norwin) went 3-3 with a home run,  two rbi, and two runs scored to lead the offense in a five-run seventh inning.
