Section loss ends STMA’s softball season


(May 21) Coon Rapids bumped STMA from postseason play with a 10-victory in the opening game of the Section 5AAA played at Rice Creek Park in Shoreview.

"We did not have our best game of the season," said Knights coach Kellie Shumway. "We had five fielding errors that led to eight runs. We lost 10-0, as this was also the fastest pitcher we had seen all year."

From the mound for STMA, senior pitcher Torey Malerich took the loss, even though she pitched well.

"She moved the ball around and made them work for the hits," Shumway said. "But the fast pitching got to us as no one got a hit all game."

With the loss, STMA finished 8-12 overall, which included going 4-7 in Mississippi 8 play.
