SOFTBALL GRIFFS COME CLOSE TO UPSET
Fullerton, CA - It was close, but no cigar last night for the Canisius women's softball team. The Griffs lost to #4 ranked Oklahoma State, 3-2, in the 2nd round of the KIA Klassic Softball Tournament in Fullerton, California. Canisius dropped to 3-9 on the season with four of those losses coming to teams ranked in the nation's top 15.
The Griffs trailed 2-0 in the 3rd when freshman Lynn Stoczynski (Cheektowaga-Depew HS) led off with a single. Sophomore Jackie Fusco (Lancaster) laid down a sacrifice bunt and a throwing error left Griffs on second and third. Joy Judski (Vestal-Seton Catholic) followed with a double to knot the score at two. The inning ended when junior Jesse Rosenhahn's (West Seneca-West) 220-foot drive was caught up against the left field fence.
Oklahoma State scored a run in the bottom of the third and held on to the win.
Canisius meets number one ranked Arizona this afternoon at 4 PM EST.
