Stone Bridge pounded out 10 hits against Loudoun Valley last night in Purcellville on its way to a 6-2 victory that left the teams tied atop the Virginia AA Dulles District baseball standings. Senior outfielders Brooks Abbey and Andrew Winslow each went 2 for 3 with an RBI.
"Early in the season none of us were doing a very good job of hitting," Winslow said. "But once a couple of people got it going and started hitting the ball, we all seemed to gain confidence."
Stone Bridge (13-5, 10-2), which has won nine consecutive district games, and Loudoun Valley (16-2, 10-2) each have two district contests remaining. If both teams win out, a one-game playoff would be scheduled to determine the regular season champion. . . .
Yorktown seniors John Crone and Steve Brady hit back-to-back home runs in the fourth inning in a 13-6 victory over Falls Church. Crone's homer was his seventh of the season, and it is the second time this season Crone and Brady have hit consecutive home runs.
Potomac School Wins ISL Title
After going hitless in her first three at-bats, Potomac School junior Giorie Mahn smacked an RBI double to center field that lifted the Panthers to a 2-1, eight-inning victory over Georgetown Visitation in the Independent School League AA tournament championship game in Oakton.
Potomac School (12-4) captured the school's first tournament title and finished with the best record in the regular season.
Georgetown Visitation (10-5) took the early lead when Cecile Egan scored on a groundout, but the Panthers answered in the bottom of the first when Morgan Simpson's groundout drove in Kelly Hackett.
Both teams left a combined 10 runners on base before Mahn's game-winning RBI.
"I was scared I was going to pop up the ball like I had done earlier," Mahn said. "I knew I wanted to hit the ball so bad." . . . Grace Brethren junior shortstop Jessica Bugtai hit a three-run home run in the bottom of the fifth inning to secure a 21-2 win over Washington Waldorf at home. Senior center fielder Jessica Schools was 3 for 3 with two RBI.
