Spring sports


The top-ranked Chesapeake-Anne Arundel softball team avenged its only loss of the season in a big way yesterday at Glen Burnie, scoring four times in the fourth inning and posting three runs in the last three innings to overwhelm the No. 2 Gophers, 14-6.

Freshman pitcher Lauren Gibson led the Cougars' 12-hit attack with three singles, a double, three RBIs and one run, and left fielder Brooke Owen had two doubles, two RBIs and two runs.

Chesapeake (16-1) improved to 12-1 in Anne Arundel County play, while the Gophers (14-3) fell to 11-3 in the league.

"If you would have told me this was going to be a 14-6 game, I would have never believed it with these two good teams. But we were able to put the ball in play and ran the bases well to put a lot of pressure on them," Chesapeake coach Don Ellenberger said.
