Stolmack gives Spartans just enough offense

April 20, 2012


La Cañada 2, Monrovia 0: The Spartans' offense struggled against the Wildcats once again this season, outside of a bloop single from Alyssa Stolmack that scored Olivia Leyva and Katy Lee, who singled and bunted their way aboard, respectively, in the bottom of the third inning.

Lauren Cox made it stand up for the win for La Cañada (13-2-1, 4-1-1 in Rio Hondo League), as she had a perfect game going through five innings, but wound up giving up two hits, while striking out eight batters in the game.


Kelsey Drange logged La Cañada's fourth and final hit.

Westridge 5, Flintridge Prep 3: The Rebels led Friday afternoon's Prep League contest, 2-1, going into the bottom of the fifth, where the Tigers scored three runs to take the lead for good.

Chelsea Johnson went two for three with a run scored for Prep (1-12, 1-5), which also got a run batted in from Rachel Simon.


La Cañada 184, South Pasadena 203: Colin Morikawa earned medalist honors for the Spartans Thursday at the La Cañada Flintridge Country Club with a three-under-par 31.

Andrew Park was the next lowest scorer overall for La Cañada (14-3, 6-0 in Rio Hondo League) with a 35. Joshua Suh also shot a 37.

Alemany 188, St. Francis 198: Johnny Brandt shot a one-over-par 37 on Thursday for the visiting Golden Knights in a Mission League match at Hanson Dam Golf Course. St. Francis received 39s from Michael Finney and Jason Stumbaugh.

On Wednesday, St. Francis recorded a 210-215 win against Alemany at Brookside Golf Course No. 1.

Viewpoint 189, Flintridge Prep 245, Granada Hills Hillcrest Christian 267: Jack Bouchard carded a three-over-par 39 for the Rebels on Thursday in a Prep League match at Encino Golf Course. Josh Kim added a 43 for Flintridge prep (6-10, 2-6 in league).


La Cañada 16, Monrovia 2: The Spartans are three players down after losing No. 1 singles player Joshua Kim and No. 3 singles player Ryan Lee to injuries and another because of academic ineligibility.

It wasn't enough to keep La Cañada from cruising to a Rio Hondo League win over the Wildcats at home Friday.

Lewon Lim played singles for the first time this season and swept for the Spartans, who swept all their doubles matches.

Injuries got the best of La Cañada (7-6, 3-4) Thursday, though, as it fell to Temple City, 15-3.
