SCTCC Cyclones Finish 5th at National Tourney
ROCHESTER -- After another 1-1 day, the St. Cloud Tech and Community College softball team placed 5th at the NJCAA Division III National Championship.
The #3 Cyclones lost in the first game of the day 1-0 to Onandage Community College in 10 innings. Paige Larsen had two of the Cyclones' five hits on the day, including a double -- but Onandage's Morgan Nichols pitched all 10 innings keeping SCTCC scoreless.
The loss set up SCTCC with a rematch against Ocean County College, who beat them in yesterday's (Thursday) opening round game.
The game was scoreless until the 6th inning when the Cyclones broke out for five runs in the final two innings. Catcher Olivia Stockinger went 4-for-4 at the plate and Shania Kinghorn and Morgan Majerus each added two RBI for the Cyclones in the victory.
With the win, the Cyclones finish the season with a combined 41-13 record.
