April 19, 2006|By GLENN GRAHAM | GLENN GRAHAM,SUN REPORTER

Fifth-ranked Archbishop Spalding jumped out to a fast lead and then handed the game over to All-Metro pitcher Stephanie Weigman, who tossed a three-hitter to come away with the 8-1 win over top-ranked Seton Keough yesterday at Randazzo Park.

Spalding, the defending Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference champions, improved to 9-4 and 6-1 in league play. The Gators, who took over the top spot in The Sun's poll this week, fell to 8-1 overall and 7-1 in the league.

Sloane Van Meter doubled and scored in the first inning and added two walks and two more runs scored to lead the Cavaliers' 12-hit attack. Marybeth Herrick singled twice and scored two runs, and Elaine Nescio contributed a two-run single in the Cavaliers' four-run third inning.

"Stephanie [Weigman] came out and dominated as usual. She did a good job of staying ahead of every batter and making them chase her pitches," Spalding coach Nicki Trumpler said. "As for us, I thought we were selective at the plate, stayed under control at the plate and let it happen."
