Regular Season 24-1

Will Host Conference Tournament,
Travel to Nationals

Tori LemayThe NHTI Lynx women's softball team capped a perfect spring with a sweep of the College of Saint Joseph’s (VT) on Thursday April 28. The Lynx jumped out to a 5-1 lead at the end of the second. Tori Lemay (Manchester, right) held off St. Joe’s giving up four runs in a complete game win to improve her record to 14-1 on the season. Lemay struck out eight while scattering 11 hits. The win improved the Lynx to 11-1.

The senior pitcher is tops in the Yankee Small College Conference (YSCC) in wins (14), earned run average (0.68), strikeouts (160), and saves (2). Tori’s dominance extends to the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) where Lemay is first in ERA and strikeouts and third in wins.
Hannah SeidnerThe Lynx boast the nation’s best ERA as a team with 1.17 only allowing one homerun in the 25 games. The pitching duo of Lemay and Hannah Seidner (Pembroke, right) have struck out 210, good for second in the nation behind Iowa Western University who has played 13 more games and has struck out 14 more batters.

Courtney GilmanOn the offensive side the Lynx are hitting .359, second in the USCAA with a pair of homeruns and 155 RBIs. Danyel McNicholas (Raymond) leads the YSCC with 26 RBIs and is second with a .459 batting average. Emma Gagnon (Pembroke) sits third in the YSCC in batting average (.452) and is second in steals with 15. Courtney Gilman (Penacook, above) is second in the YSCC with 23 RBIs and hit .500 to earn herself the YSCC Player of the Week honors last week.

The 24-1 record and 11-1 conference record has earned the team the third spot in the USCAA’s coaches poll. The Lynx are the top team in the YSCC and will host the conference tournament on Saturday May 7. NHTI will play the winner of a semifinal match earlier that day.

The Lynx will head to the USCAA national championships May 15-19 in Akron, OH.
