ENDICOTT – The Norwich Tornado varsity softball team claimed second place at the annual Mary Testa Tournament, which took place in Union Endicott this past Saturday, Apr. 30.
In their first matchup, Norwich faced off against Tioga. They emerged as close victors, 10-9.
The Purple Tornado offense was on fire from the start, and they jumped out to a huge advantage. “We were up 10-1 after five innings and then Hannah started getting some tightness in her arm,” said Norwich head coach Scott Moore. Eddy, who pitched the complete game for Norwich, ended up yielding 12 hits and gave up eight earned runs over the duration, but the Tornado survived by the skin of their teeth to clinch the win. “We played really solid ball for six innings, but that last inning got the best of us. It was just single after single,” said Moore. Kassidy Seary was the MVP of the game. She had a splendid afternoon, finishing 4 for five at the plate, with two RBI’s. Jordan Sanford finished two for four at the plate, with a run batted in.
