The Plum varsity slow-pitch softball team played four games last weekend and swept a pair of games from North Hills and North Allegheny.

Saturday's games against North Hills were rescheduled from Oct. 7, and Plum won the first game 18-16 behind four hits, including a home run and three runs batted in, by Brianne DeGore.

Jess Allman, Rylee White, Jess Snider and Alyssa Stonebraker each added three hits, and Stonebraker and Snider both knocked in three runs.

In game two, a Plum 11-1 victory in five innings, Amber Shields went 3 for 3, Stonebraker had three RBI, and Allman, Abby Costa, Rylee White and Rachel White each went 2 for 3.

North Allegheny is the defending Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Softball League champion, but Plum was dominant in both games Sunday.

Plum won the first game, 12-2, in six innings, and Snider, in the pitching circle, allowed only two runs in one inning while shutting out North Allegheny over the other five frames.

Contributing to the offense was Rylee White with four RBI.

Allman, Stonebraker, Costa, Shields, Nicolette Giovanetti, Amanda Zimmerman and Camryn McCabe each added two hits.

The second game saw the Mustangs triumph, 24-11, in five innings.

Costa and Rylee White each went 3 for 3, with Costa driving in four runs.

Snider had five RBI, while Shields and Lindsey Herd each contributed three runs batted in.

Stonebraker and Snider both were 3 for 4.

The breakout inning was the fifth, as Plum scored 10 runs on a combination of seven hits and five walks.

The Plum varsity now is 8-2, and the team hosts Baldwin on Sunday at noon.

JV wins two

The Plum JV team is 7-3 after sweeping North Hills on Saturday.

The Mustangs won the first game 7-3, and North Hills didn't score after plating three runs in the first inning.

Sierra McElhose went 3 for 3 with a home run, while Melissa Colchagie hit a home run and drove in two.

Katelin Rombach and Natalee Tommarello each went 2 for 3.

In the second game, Plum trailed for most of the game before scoring three in the top of the seventh to take the lead. North Hills went 1-2-3 in the bottom of the seventh, and the Mustangs came away with an 11-10 victory.

Colchagie went 4 for 4 with a home run, while Rachel White, Rombach and Myranda Cypher each went 3 for 4. Rombach led the way with three RBI.
