Pitcher stifles Keswick hitters


© St. Petersburg Times, published May 4, 2001

NAPLES -- After blowing through the Class A regional quarterfinals, Keswick Christian was blown out Thursday at Community School.

The Crusaders (10-5) were blanked by the Seahawks 8-0, putting an end to a promising season that looked even more promising after Tuesday's 20-0 shellacking of Bayshore Christian.

But Community School's Whitney Stites baffled Keswick from the get-go, allowing one hit while striking out 10. The Seahawks (17-3) supported her with nine hits and some timely baserunning.

"We were in the game the whole time. We just couldn't get hits put together," Crusaders coach Robin Hintz said. "We made some good contact here and there, but we just couldn't get anything going."

The game was scoreless after one inning before Community School scored two unearned runs in the second on a throwing error by Keswick starting pitcher Amanda Colangelo.

One inning later, the lead increased to five after Ashley Stites hit a three-run home run. Hintz made a pitching change in the sixth inning with her team down 6-0, bringing in first baseman Lindsey Crosby. But she was tagged for two runs on three hits.

"We had a lot of improvement in a very short season," Hintz said. "I honestly feel if we had a little bit more time to work together and jell together, it would have been a little bit different outcome here. But overall we had a pretty good season."
