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."
