This week's voting for UChoose Student-Athlete of the Week has closed.
Jay Skorulski (P) – Ellington Baseball
The senior struck out six and walked just one to dominate Canton in a no-hit performance Tuesday. Skorulski tossed just 81 pitches in the 8-0 win. Just a day later, Skorulski’s teammate Cam Rosa struck out 13 in a 96-pitch no-hitter against Windsor Locks. Rosa walked three in the 8-1 victory.
Sydney Senerchia (P) – North Branford Softball
The 5’5 sophomore pitched a no-hitter and struck out 15 Portland batters in a 7-0 shutout. North Branford is now 9-0 after the lefty’s great performance. According to Mike Pucci of GameTimeCT.com, Senerchia received some help from teammates Sabrina Lemere and Kayee Velez, who homered and drove in three runs each. http://www.gametimect.com/fridays-nh-county-softball-roundup-senerchia-tosses-no-hitter-no-9-north-branford/.
Beth Fleming (P) – Norwich Free Academy Softball
The Wildcats shunned Bacon Academy 15-0 in five innings, Thursday.
THE BOBCATS WENT DOWN IN ORDER! The junior struck out every single batter that she faced in the 15-batter perfecto.
5 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 15 K, 0 BB…WOW.
Autumn Lewandowski (C) – Platt Tech (Milford) Softball
Platt Tech dominated Wilcox Tech 15-6 behind seven RBI from Autumn. The senior hit for the cycle.
Connor Chamberlin (A) – Staples-Westport Boys Lacrosse
Staples had improved to 7-0, Monday, in a thrilling double-overtime triumph over Greenwich. The senior’s goal (he had a hat-trick on the day) with just two minutes remaining in the second extra session, allowed the Wreckers to collect the 13-12 win. Teammate Michael Reale sent the game to overtime on a goal with five seconds left on the clock.
Tim Herget (OH) – Darien Boys Volleyball
For the first time in nearly two years, two-time defending Class L champion Ridgefield has lost a volleyball match. The school that we profiled on last week’s In The Huddle (watch as an additional member benefit at cptv.org/passport) as part of CPTV Sports In Focus (Wednesdays at 7) was beaten by Darien (9-0, 5-0 FCIAC) in four games. The junior captain put up a scintillating line to help the Blue Wave conquer the team that beat them in last year’s Class L final: 36 kills, 22 digs, and five service aces!
