Severna Park Softball Edged Out In Region Semifinal


Players on the young Severna Park softball team proved they had grown up, and they were three smooth innings away from scoring a huge upset in the region semifinals.

But one rough inning undid the hard work of the first four, and with it the season.

Chesapeake plated three unearned runs in the bottom of the fifth inning to beat Severna Park 3-2 on May 13.

Isabelle Tello and Addison Bianco each hit home runs for the Falcons, while Quinlyn Bary struck out seven in six innings of work in the circle.

The Falcons got to the region semifinal after they cruised in their tournament opener, a 15-5 win over South River. In that game, Bianco homered twice and drove in four runs, while Sally Trent also homered and drove in three runs. Bary also plated three in the win.

Severna Park ended the season at 13-8. The Falcons will graduate five seniors: catcher Trent, center fielder Christina Ballagh, running specialist Kasey Thompson and Katherine Boord, and Ellen Blain.
