Indians Softball Continues to Dominate
Written by Bradley Schlegel, Staff Writer

            Upper Perkiomen's softball team continued its dominance of the Pioneer

men's 7-3 victory over Perkiomen Valley on April 20.

Athletic Conference with three recent victories. The team maintained its undefeated record with consecutive victories over a trio of Liberty Division opponents.

           "Everyone knows who we are," head coach Dean Sullivan said.

           The Indians (8-0 PAC, 8-1 overall) have relied mostly on the pitching of Taylor Lindsay and the speed and aggressiveness of Jenna Sullivan and Alexa Banner at the top of its batting order to build a four-game lead atop the Frontier Division standings.

            Last week, in a 7-3 win over Perkiomen Valley, their power at the plate reemerged. Morgan Lindsay homered twice and Alyssa Sullivan hit one to spark an eight-hit outburst. Taylor Lindsay went the distance on the mound despite taking a line drive off the shin in the first inning. She allowed nine hits and three earned runs while striking out five in a rematch of last season's conference title game.

            The April 20 victory, along with a 5-0 win over Boyertown two days earlier, means that Upper Perkiomen's senior class has notched a win over every conference opponent.

            Jenna Sullivan and Banner, the Indians No. 1 and No. 2 hitters, respectively, have provided speed to their already potent offense. According to Dean Sullivan, the team is implementing more bunt-and- run plays. He has allowed them wide latitude to bunt at their discretion.

            "They both know what they are doing," the coach said. "So I'm going to let them play."

            According Dean Sullivan, Jenna Sullivan lacks the timidity of most ninth graders. "Jenna is very aggressive at the plate," he said. "She loves swinging the bat, and she gets down on herself if she's not getting hits."

            Upper Perkiomen opened its five-game stretch against opponents from the conference's big-school division with a dominant performance against the visiting Bears on April 18. Taylor Lindsay scatted three hits and struck out six to go the distance on the mound. Jenna Sullivan finished with three hits and scored a run. Karlee Fretz added two hits, scored once and drove in a run.

            Morgan Lindsay drive in four runs in the win over the Vikings. Banner contributed two hits, two RBI and scored twice for the Indians, who led 4-0 after four innings.

            On Monday, Upper Perkiomen registered a 3-0 victory over Methacton. Taylor Lindsay dominated on the mound, scattering four hits and registering eight strikeouts. She also delivered the key offensive blow, a two-run homer during a three-run, third-inning rally.

            Morgan Lindsay went 3-for-3 at the plate and scored one run for the visiting Indians. Jenna Sullivan scored their other run.
