Pinellas Park edges Tarpon Springs 1-0 in softball

At times this season, the Pinellas Park softball team has had a hard time scoring runs.

Of course, when USF signee Sara Nevins is your starting pitcher, sometimes it doesn't matter.

The Patriots scored a single run in the first, and Nevins made it stand up over seven innings in a 1-0 victory at Tarpon Springs. Nevins allowed two hits and struck out 12.

Sammy Martin drove in the lone run with a single.

The Spongers had runners in scoring position in the first and fourth, but Nevins shut them down each time.

"We just couldn't get that hit we needed," Spongers coach Dion Weaver said.

Annie Causey "threw very well," Weaver said, taking the loss despite allowing six hits.

Northside 7, Farragut 0: Jessica Anderson threw a one-hitter for the visiting Mustangs. Anderson (12-2) also doubled, one of six hits for the Mustangs.


Northside Christian won the girls and boys titles at the Bay Conference meet at Shorecrest.

Victoria Goodwin, Katelyn Greenleaf and Asia Olds combined to win seven individual events and were on two winning relays for the Mustangs.

Goodwin took first in the triple jump and 100- and 300-meter hurdles and was part of the 4x400 relay. Greenleaf won the 1,600 and 3,200 and was the anchor leg on the 4x800 relay.

Olds won the long jump and 200 and also was on the 4x400 relay. She might have won four events but false-started in the 100 after being seeded first.

Will Scott was Northside's only boy to win multiple events (high jump and 200).


Knoxville (Tenn.) Cath. 9, SPC 8: A bases-loaded wild pitch in the seventh inning was the Barons' final mistake in a loss in the semifinals of the Jesuit Easter tournament. SPC made eight errors and allowed five unearned runs. It plays St. John's from Washington D.C. in today's third-place game.

Dixie 5, Boca Ciega 3: Jody Odom struck out nine in a complete game for the visiting Rebels.

    ST. PETERSBURG — It didn't take CF Kevin Kiermaier long to make his presence felt during his return Friday to the Rays lineup. Kiermaier pretended to have Mariners DH Nelson Cruz's first-inning line drive lined up even as the ball went past him to his right and to the wall.
