COUNCIL ROCK NORTH 3, BOYERTOWN 0 >> Behind an excellent pitching performance by hard-throwing sophomore Jenna Khantzian, the Council Rock North softball team beat Boyertown, 3-0, Wednesday in the PIAA District One Class AAAAAA Tournament.
With the victory, the Indians (14-4) advanced to the quarterfinals for the first time in years and will travel to Coatesville Friday afternoon.
Committed to Virginia Tech, Khantzian fired a six-hitter with six strikeouts. All the Rock North scoring came in the fourth when Riley Sheehy and Lauren Begg singled to bring Taylor Briggs to the plate. Briggs delivered big time with a three-run home run.
“Briggs has really stepped up her game,” said Rock North coach John Engelhardt, “And Jenna did a fantastic job. That’s the best defense we played all year. It showed the girls what kind of team they can be when they play good defense.
Boyertown was led by Sarah Reinert, who finished with a team-best three hits. Alyssa Acker added two hits while Allison Melahn struck out five in her six innings of work in the circle.
