May 12, 2011 LLEY PORTS 0000i0000POST-REGISTER Sophomore outfielder Candice Snyder gets a high-five from assistant coach Pauline Baughman after one of her six hits against visiting Ephrata. Kurtis J. Wood/Post-Register Ladi end, season with sweep00! Quincy tallies first ever sweep versus Ephrata fastpitch By KURTIS J.Wooo sports @ Quincy - After missing the play- offs, the Lady Jacks softball team was looking for a positive note to end the season. Last Thursday's rivalry game was just the ticket to send a trio of seniors out with a bang. It was the type of bang no Quincy softball team has ever felt in the 14 years of playing fastpitch. Quincy swept Ephrata 7-2, 9-4. The battery ofAdrianna Zamarron and Brenda Fregoso kept the Lady Tigers off balance at the plate, while the defense of shortstop Shelan Lybbert kept base runners at a minimum. The trio also combined for a dozen hits to lead the team to the rare sweep. "It was more of a pride thing," coach Bill Gonzales said. "It's been a while since we beat Ephrata twice." Actually, the Lady Jacks had never swept Ephrata in fastpitch. Since 1998, Ephrata has led the series by winning 23 games versus six losses. This year, the Quincy victories gave them seventh in league and dropped Ephrata to eighth. "We ended the year with a win," Fregoso said. "It was great to have both games." In the opener, Zamarron gave up just five hits and two earned runs, while striking out seven Lady Tigers. In the nightcap, she added eight more strikeouts, but gave up nine hits in her career finale. "I' ve been working on my drop ball, which has been working today," she said, "and they are our nvals." Fregoso was a little shocked the Lady Tigers did not hit the ball better. The Ephrata team had accounted for seven home runs on the season and added just one against Zamarron. Kayla Brissey (3-for-4, HR, 3B) hit a hanging drop ball over the fence in first inning, but she was one of the only hard hits off Zamarron all day. "She was throwing drop balls and outside," Fregoso said. "When it's going down, it goes in and tricks them. I was expecting them to hit." Zamarron also has a nuckleball type look to her pitching. "It kind of just shriggles in there," Fregoso said. "It sometimes even fools me." "Adrianna pitched one hell of a game," Gonzales echoed. On the flipside, Quincy belted out 27 hits on Ephrata's Katie Allen. Lybbert went 4-for-8 with three runs, Araceli Serrano was 4-for-8 with two runs and a pair of doubles and Candice Snyder was 6-for-8,while Fregoso was 5-of-8 on the day. "I think it was something slower and we're not used to that, but when we get them (like that) we take advantage," Fregoso said. They took full advantage in the third frame of the opener by breaking open a l - 1 tie with five runs. It started with Madison Petersen (l-for- 1,2BB, HBP) drawing a walk and continued with five straight singles by Zamarron, Bereniz Reyes, Snyder,Aurorah Davis and Marbely Sanchez for the 6-1 lead. The Lady Jacks added one more run in the fifth for the 7-2 win. In the nightcap, Quincy opened with five runs, added one in the second, two in the fifth and one in the sixth for the 9-4 victory.
