Eastern Tech rolls No. 4 Sparrows Point in softball; Burton and Tawney each drive in four
Eastern Tech’s reign as Baltimore County softball champions ended last spring. The Mavericks hope to start a new streak this spring.
The No. 10 Mavericks routed fourth-ranked and defending league champ Sparrows Point, 23-4, Tuesday afternoon. Senior Miranda Burton went 3 for 4 with 4 RBI and Emma Tawney drove in four runs.
The Mace Avenue school scored 11 runs in its opening at-bat, improving to 2-0 on the young season. The Mavericks failed to qualify for the county final last season, ending their seven-year title hold, but reached the Class 2A state final (lost to Southern Maryland’s LaPlata).
Eastern Tech easily aced its first test of 2019, raking 21 hits in the 5-inning mercy rule match. Sophomore Lena Wondowski finished 4 for 5 with 3 RBI and Bella Schwing added three hits and 2 RBI.
Rilee Fazenbaker allowed 3 earned runs and six hits. Sidney Monaldi and Megan Hamp each doubled for Sparrows Point.
