Before the season began, Eastern Tech softball coach Marian Klein was surprisingly optimistic for someone who had just four returning starters from an 8-8 team that didn't make the playoffs."

The first pitch Franklin senior Kara Wingate threw yesterday was driven to deep left field for a towering home run by Eastern Tech pitcher Sandy Birchfield.It was an inauspicious start for Wingate, but it proved to be the wake-up call she needed."That pitch slipped a little inside," Wingate said. "After she hit it, I realized I had to concentrate. I know our team can hit, but I have to do my part, too."The rest of the way, Wingate did her part by shutting down the visiting Mavericks on just three singles, and the seventh-ranked Indians scratched out a 2-1 victory in a matchup of the top two teams in Baltimore County's Division I.Franklin (8-0, 7-0)

The Eastern Tech softball team spent 7 1/2 innings of its Baltimore County championship game against No. 9 Franklin playing catch-up. But once the host Mavericks got to the eighth, they scored twice to take the lead for the first time, at the only moment it really counted, and won, 4-3. Franklin (15-2) held the lead three times, but it all came down to the final play in extra innings. Unranked Eastern Tech (15-5) came to bat in the eighth down 3-2 after Franklin designated hitter Elizabeth Haines had just driven in the go-ahead run in the top of the inning.

If there's a better reward for winning than push-ups and sit-ups, the Franklin softball team hasn't found it. The No. 10 Indians continued their required conditioning drills after soundly beating visiting Eastern Tech, 9-1, in Reisterstown yesterday. As usual, the Franklin players plopped themselves behind third base in foul territory and did 10 push-ups, 10 sit-ups and 10 leg lifts. "It's our reward for winning," said senior Suzy Gill. "It's a pain sometimes, but it's good for us, and we don't mind it if we keep winning."

Stephanie Monte showed why she's one of the area's top pitchers, striking out 10 and allowing just three hits as No. 13 Dulaney scored a 1-0 victory over visiting Eastern Tech yesterday. Monte has been nearly unhittable this season for Dulaney (9-0). The senior has allowed just one unearned run in 40 innings pitched. Monte's great fastball and location kept the Mavericks batters off-balance. Two of Eastern Tech's hits were infield singles, and the Mavericks didn't get a ball into the outfield until the sixth.

The Eastern Tech hitters were still trying to figure out how to hit Catonsville freshman pitcher Amanda Fefel after yesterday's Baltimore County softball game. Fefel struck out 12 and handcuffed the visiting Mavericks, allowing two hits in eight innings. Despite all of that, Fefel came away with a loss. Catonsville made costly mistakes and allowed Eastern Tech to manufacture runs and escape with a 4-3 victory in eight innings. Fefel had struck out 22, helped throw a no-hitter and allowed just two hits in 10 innings in her first two varsity games.

Jamie Stimmel had waited a long time for this moment. In Stimmel's four-year career on the Eastern Tech softball team, the Mavericks had never defeated five-time county champion Franklin - until yesterday. Unheralded and visiting Eastern Tech scored two runs in the eighth inning to upend the No. 13 Indians, 4-3, in extra innings in Reisterstown. "All the girls are excited," Stimmel said. "They're ranked, so it's even more special to beat a ranked team." Mavericks coach Dave Scrivener said the win opened the race for the county title among Eastern Tech, Franklin, Dulaney and Parkville.

This time a year ago, the Eastern Technical Mavericks were putting the wraps on an 8-8 season and pondering a future without six of their senior starters.Left with an inexperienced club and an all-freshmen battery, coach Marian Klein said she wasn't quite sure what to expect.What she got easily surpassed all expectations.For the first time in school history, the Mavericks won their region and made it to the Class 3A state semifinals yesterday at Randazzo Park, where even a 4-1 loss to McDonough of Charles County couldn't take away from an otherwise dream season.
