Adirondack Chill win one, tie one
The Adirondack Chill 16-and-under softball team traveled to Old Forge on Saturday to play a doubleheader against the Monroe Blazers from Fairport. The Chill won the first game 11-3 and tied the nightcap 9-9.
Olivia Jacques and Serina Hayes combined to throw a four-hitter in the opener, while Sydney Battistoni went 4-for-4 with four RBI to lead the way offensively.
In the second game, Adirondack fell behind early, but rallied to score seven runs in the bottom of the sixth. The game was called after seven innings.
Battistoni went 2-for-4, while Haley Brandes and Hayes each went 2-for-3 to pace the Chill offensively. Jacques' two-run triple got the scoring started.
