Renee Stilwell and Maddie Muscente dominated the mound on Tuesday night with 13 total strikeouts. Ithaca’s tight defense controlled the field while only committing two errors.

Ithaca earned the victory with a powerful offense by scoring 19 runs off 14 hits. Lead-off hitter Meena Colbdorf did her job going 2 for 2 and reaching base at all four plate appearances. Jessica Plue and Maddie Muscente led the team with 3 RBIs a piece along with Sarah Brown, Allie Spada, and Chloe Kroll contributing 2 each.

Ithaca plays their next game this Thursday at Moravia High School at 4:30pm. They return home for a game against Horseheads next Tuesday at the IHS softball field.
