Triceratops Softball Knocks Off Another Nationally Ranked Team
Tri-C sweeps doubleheader against #14 ranked CCBC Catonsville
The Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) softball team keeps racking up impressive victories.
The Triceratops swept a team just ahead of them in the national rankings — #14 CCBC Catonsville in Maryland — during a weekend road trip to Maryland. Tri-C won the opener 10-8 before dominating the finale with a 9-0 victory on Saturday, March 23.
Pitcher Brooke Crider picked up two wins over the weekend while allowing one run over nine innings on the mound. Catcher/designated hitter Megan Mulhan led the offense while batting .615 (8-13) with a home run, two triples and eight RBI.
The team is 12-4 on the season, with five of those wins against nationally ranked teams. The Triceratops climbed to #17 in last week’s NJCAA Division II rankings and expect to rise in the new poll released Tuesday, March 26.
The Triceratops travel to Surry Community College (11-8) and Patrick Henry Community College (5-10) later this week for a pair of doubleheaders. Conference play begins Friday, April 5.
Tri-C finished 25-13 in 2018 while claiming the Ohio Community College Athletic Conference title for the second consecutive season and third time since 2013. The Triceratops play their home games at Western Campus in Parma.
