Saints softball opens with four wins

Updated: Sep 13, 2022

The St. Clair softball team showed no mercy during their opening weekend of play scoring 54 runs in four wins. Saints started the season Saturday in Hamilton with a 12-2win over Mohawk and followed up with a 17-2 victory over Conestoga.


"The team is playing really good." said head coach Doug Wiseman whose team returned home for their home opener Sunday morning against Lambton and posted a 14-0 shutout.


"We're getting everybody in which is nice. We're getting contributions from one through sixteen. We're focused." said Wiseman whose team is hosting the Canadian Collegiate Softball Association national championship tournament in early October.


Rya Cowan and Mckenna Copley combined for a 2-hit shutout. Sierra Baltzer smacked a 2-run homer in the 5th.


St. Clair followed that up in the afternoon blanking Fanshawe 11-0. Rookie Mekenna Copley of Dover Centre, Ontario pitched a 2-hitter and has spent more time on the mound than she anticipated heading into the season. "I love the opportunity I've been given." said Copley.


The 18-year old, who won four provincial medals with the Chatham Golden Eagles, is excited about playing on a strong team that has her back. "Especially as a pitcher, you have a defence that's amazing behind you. An outfielder (Sierra Baltzer), nothing drops. It's just amazing."


The Saints have six road games over the next two weekends before returning home to host the defending league champions from Durham on September 25th.
