3A-10 softball: Tampa Catholic shuts out Academy of the Holy Names

Class 3A, district 10

Tampa Catholic starts fast in shutout of AHN

TAMPA — One thing has been certain when Tampa Catholic and Academy of the Holy Names have played softball this season.

One team will be shut out.

After a 10-0 victory against and a 1-0 loss to the Jaguars during the regular season, the Crusaders opened district play on the positive side of that statistic, blanking AHN 4-0 in a Class 3A, District 10 semifinal game.

Tampa Catholic (16-5) moves on to Thursday's final.

Crusaders pitcher Tory Bohanan (11-3) allowed one hit while striking out seven and walking none.

Ashton Hill had the Jaguars' lone hit, and only two runners reached base — with one getting as far as second.

Tampa Catholic's offense started fast, with three runs on four hits in the first inning. Amber Hay hit a triple, followed by run-scoring hits by Christina Martinez and Bohanan.

Martinez scored Tampa Catholic's last run on a Christina Piazza single in the sixth inning.

"The girls came out right at the start and played well," Tampa Catholic coach Vernon Tatum said. "We scored those first-inning runs with two outs. That was really clutch hitting. And our pitching was outstanding."

"Tory (Bohanan) is always a go-getter."

    ST. PETERSBURG — Rays manager Kevin Cash liked the way Alex Cobb was competing Friday night. He liked the way the hard contact made by the Rangers batters went away after the second or third inning. So as the game headed toward the ninth, there was no doubt in Cash's mind that sending Cobb back to the mound was …

    Looks like LF Corey Dickerson is coming out of his funk at the plate — .186 average in past 16 games entering Friday. He had two hits Wednesday in Oakland and three hits Friday against the Rangers. Okay, one was an infield hit that bounced high in front of the plate, but the other was a long home run to …

  5. History shows Ole Miss upheaval tough to overcome


    After Mississippi football coach Hugh Freeze resigned Thursday, with the opener six weeks away, offensive line coach Matt Luke is being thrown into an interim head coaching position. He will try to save a season that already had been scarred by a self-imposed bowl ban for NCAA violations.

    After coach Jim Tressel resigned, Ohio State went 6-7, including a loss to Florida in the Gator Bowl, in 2011.
