Eagles soar at Hawken

Kayla Lindberg and Jessica Guggenbiller each knocked in three runs to lead Geneva to a 15-4 five-inning win at Hawken on Thursday.

Lindberg finished the day 3-for-4 while Guggenbiller was 2-for-4 at the plate.

The win was the second straight for the Eagles, who improved to 6-0 in the Chagrin Valley Conference Chagrin Division.

“It’s starting to build confidence a little bit,” Geneva coach Eleshia Pitcher said. “At the begging, we started out a little rough. I kept saying, ‘We’re young, we’re going to start slow,’ so these games, each one, we get a little more confident.”

Brittany Podluzne picked up the pitching victory after allowing four earned runs on five hits with five strikeouts in five innings of work.

Hawken’s Ava Kaufman was 3-for-3 at the plate with a double and Stella Sommers finished 2-for-3 with a home run and a double and four runs batted in.

The home run was the third of the season for Sommers, a freshman.

“We’re so excited to see her progress,” Hawken coach Cassie Bucceri said. “She has a level swing and makes adjustments at the plate. After her first couple of at-bats, she made adjustments and was able to get that hit.”
