SATURDAY RECAP: Lady Tigers seniors celebrate with win

The young additions from a squad that reached the Little League World Series get much of the attention on Tunkhannock’s softball team, but seniors stepped into the spotlight Saturday when the Lady Tigers remained unbeaten in the Wyoming Valley Conference with their sixth straight victory.

Outfielders Nicole Howell and Aubrey Parr celebrated Senior Day by leading the Lady Tigers to a 12-1, five-inning romp over Nanticoke in a WVC Division 2 game.

Howell went 3-for-3 with a double, two runs and two RBI. Parr was 2-for-3 with two RBI.

Paige Marabell, who homered, and Gabby Wood, who doubled and scored three times, each joined Parr with two hits and two RBI.

Allison Keener and Tiffany Brogan each had two hits for Nanticoke.


Crestwood is the last remaining unbeaten team in District 2 after it won a non-league game while Wyoming Seminary lost one. The Comets will test their perfect record Tuesday at home against Emmaus, an unbeaten Class 3A team from District 11. The unbeaten Emmaus girls team is responsible for the only loss by the Crestwood girls.

Trey Zabroski scored nine goals and assisted on five in Crestwood’s 16-3 win over Lewisburg. Nick Curry added three goals and two assists while faceoff specialist Jimmy Hawley helped the Comets to a large advantage in possession time.

Wyoming Seminary fell to Blair Academy, a New Jersey prep school, 14-7.


Lilian Raczkowski and Maddy Rapsen each scored five goals in Lake-Lehman’s 17-3 Wyoming Valley Conference romp over Delaware Valley. Raczkowski also had an assist. Kortney Harry made 10 saves for Lake-Lehman, which remained in a third-place tie with Scranton Prep at 4-1. Crestwood leads the WVC at 6-0 and Wyoming Area is 5-0.

Wyoming Seminary won its game, 13-3, over Tunkhannock.

Emma Kelleher scored seven goals and controlled 11 of 12 draws when Wyoming Area routed Selinsgrove, 17-2, in a non-league game to improve to 6-0 overall. Sofia Sabatini scored three goals, assisted on four and won all seven of her draws. The Lady Warriors are the only District 2 team that is unbeaten overall.
