Tide swept in track

It was another rough afternoon for Columbia in track.
The Tide was swept on the home track by Hempfield, losing the girls' meet, 133-17 and the boys' meet, 138-12.
Some Columbia athletes will compete in the Shippensburg Invitational on Saturday.
Highlights of the day were Jeremy Daise, who finished first in the 100 and Shaday Frazier, who won the 100 and a leg of the winning 400-meter relay team.

The winning continues

Here is a report on the last two softball games from Columbia coach Brad Brubaker.
We took a 5-1 win over McCaskey in Lancaster. Emily Detz was again strong in the circle striking out 13, walking none and allowing just two hits. The run was unearned.
Freshman Jenna Plastino broke open a 1-1 tie with one out in the 6th inning by crushing her first career home run to deep centerfield. The bomb plated freshman Alexis Eckman, who was pinch running for Ashlyn Phillips, who had walked. The Tide broke it open in the top of the seventh when freshman Brit Germer, who was 2-3 on the day with an RBI, led off with a single. Pinch hitter Marina Benavente would bring her home from third on a drag bunt.

The non-league win over McCaskey runs Columbia's record to 7-1 overall, tying the record for most wins in a season. The 1995 Crimson Tide finished the season at 7-9.
On Wednesday, Detz went for 4-4 with two doubles, a triple, home run and scored 3 times in leading Columbia to a 6-2 win at Lancaster Mennonite.
Plastino also went 2-4 in that game. The Tide scored single runs in every inning but the second and closed the first half of the L-L League Section 4 schedule with a perfect 5-0 mark.
 Detz was dominant in the circle, allowing three hits and striking out 18 while walking none.
