The Plum varsity slow-pitch softball team swept Peters Township on Oct. 25 to close out the regular season.

The Mustangs improved to 12-2 in its inaugural season and secured the No. 1 seed for the Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Softball League playoffs.

The first game was an offensive explosion, as Plum belted 29 hits in a 26-14 game that was halted after six innings.

Alyssa Stonebraker went 5 for 5 with a home run, while Jess Snider was 4 for 5 with a home run and seven runs batted in.

Brianne DeGore also was 4 for 5 with a home run and four RBIs, and Jessi Allman was 4 for 5 with a home run.

Rylee White was 3 for 5 with four RBIs, Alyssa Zezza went 3 for 3 with a pair of triples, Abby Costa had a home run and three RBIs, and Camryn McCabe also belted a home run.

The second game was closer, as Plum won in the bottom of the seventh by a 13-12 score.

Stonebraker went 3 for 3, while Zezza was 3 for 4.

Snider knocked in three runs, and Allman, Costa, White, Amber Shields and Nicolette Giovanetti each had two hits.

Giovanetti drove in the winning run to end the game.
