BEL AIR, Md. - March 8 - The 2013 season got off to a rough start for the Erie Community College softball team Friday as the Kats suffered two losses (13-5 and 6-3) to NJCAA Division I member Harford Community College.
Freshman Kathleen Ruggiero (Williamsville, N.Y./Sacred Heart) collected two hits in each contest to lead the Kats. Freshmen Kelsey Grosch (Depew, N.Y./Depew) and Jillian Zbytek (Cheektowaga, N.Y./Cleveland Hill) each added three hits.
ECC held a 2-1 lead in the nightcap in the fourth inning but saw Harford plate five runs in the next two innings.
In a schedule change, the Kats are now scheduled to play CCBC Dundalk in a doubleheader Saturday.
