Ansonia honored Chelsea Noggler, Alyssa Armock, Emily Gariety, Heidi Runkel, Trinity Henderson and Kassy Wentworth before the game between the neighboring schools.
The Lady Tigers put seven runs on the board in the bottom of the first and added single runs in the second and third innings to lead 9-0 after three innings of play.

Coach Jenkins took time to talk about his six seniors following the game.
“Trinity (Henderson) started out pitching,” noted Jenkins. “She hasn’t been pitching much this year because her shoulder has been hurt but she pitched two innings for us and did a good job.”
Chelsea (Noggler) was at shortstop and made a few good plays going back on the ball,” Jenkins said. “She has really been improving.”
“Our third baseman was Heidi (Runkel),” Jenkins said. “She did really well. Not much was hit down towards her but she’s ready and she hit good – she had two hits.”
“Alyssa Armock played leftfield for us this year,” stated Jenkins. “She is a very good defensive player for us.”
“Kassy (Wentworth) was the one playing first base for us tonight,” Jenkins said. “She split her finger open but she was able to come back – she’s fine so we were able to play her tonight.”
