Another slugfest

It was another slugfest this afternoon at Cocalico for the Columbia baseball team.
The Tide and Eagles combined for 17 runs and 20 hits as Cocalico scored an 11-6 win over the Tide.
Last night, the Tide gave up 11 runs in a loss to L-S.
The difference in the game was the bottom of the sixth when the Eagles scored six runs.
Cocalico led the game 3-0 with a pair of runs in the second and a single run in the third. The Tide got back in the game somewhat with a two spot in their half of the fifth innings, before the Eagles scored twice in their half of the fifth to take a 5-3 lead.
Columbia closed the gap with three runs in the top of the seventh.

No more warnings

As many of you know, street sweeping has resumed its normal schedule in the borough of Columbia.
Warnings will no longer be issused for vehicles that aren't moved. As of tomorrow, all vehicles not moved will be ticketed.

Tide back to winning ways

Junior pitcher Emily Detz broke open a 0-0 tie game in the second inning with a grand slam home run that cleared the left field fence and led the Crimson Tide to a 6-0 win over visiting Cocalico in a L-L League Section 3/4 crossover game.
 Detz went 2-3 at the plate and also walked in four appearances. In the circle, she struck out 14, while walking two and yielding just 4 hits on the rain-soaked afternoon at Glatfelter Field.

The win improved Columbia to 6-2 in Section 4 and 8-3 overall, and established a new single season school record for wins by the softball team. The previous mark of 7 wins was set in 1995 when the tide finished 7-9.

The Crimson and Gold visit Elco on Friday looking to keep pace with Section 4 front runner Pequea Valley. The Tide currently sits in second place in Section 4, a game ahead of Annville-Cleona.

The Tide had just five hits for the game.
The Pioneers, who hosted the game under the lights, scored three times in the second inning and twice in the third. They also scored once in the fifth and four more times in the sixth.
