Now until the end of the season, I will post a weekly “Hot Sheet” highlighting some of the best performances over the week that was. So, check back right here every Friday.
Tori DePietro, Springfield: The freshman sensation was 6-for-11 in three games, including a 3-for-3 effort against Upper Darby (a 4-2 loss). The pitcher/second baseman threw well in relief in a loss to Haverford Wednesday, and pitched a five-inning no-hitter against Harriton Friday, when she also tripled and homered.
Savannah Nierintz, Upper Darby: An eye-opening week for the senior pitcher, who tossed two shutouts and struck out more than 30 batters over a three-game span. Nierintz, a two-time All-Delco, fanned a career-high 18 hitters over 11 innings Wednesday. She’s also doing her part at the plate, as Monday she stroked a pair of doubles.
Bridget Newman, Haverford High: The Fords ace was spectacular on Wednesday night when she was 2-for-2 and reached base four times. Teams are starting to be more careful when facing the powerful Newman, who crushed a double and knocked in three runs in the win over Springfield.
Molly Rafferty, Cardinal O’Hara: She was 3-for-3 with a triple, homer, seven RBIs and three runs scored Monday vs. Academy Park. The pitcher doubled and threw a three-inning no-hitter against Ridley Wednesday and she again homered in a 16-0 rout of Bishop McDevitt Thursday. Rafferty features arguably the best tools and pitching combination in the county.
Stacey MacArthur, Delco Christian: MacArthur crushed two home runs and one double for the Knights in a 12-0 decision over Plumstead Christian.
Erica DeAngelo, Archbishop Carroll: DeAngelo had a pair of homers in the Patriots’ 24-1 beatdown of Hallahan in which the team belted five long balls. DeAngelo was 3-for-4 with four RBIs.
Alex Viscusi, Episcopal Academy: Viscusi threw a pair of shutouts and was 6-for-8 in two EA wins this week. Against Germantown Academy Wednesday, the sophomore was 3-for-4 with a homer, two triples and six RBIs.
Shannon Moore, Garnet Valley: She was 3-for-3 with six RBIs and three runs scored against Marple Newtown and continued to swing a hot bat against Lower Merion.
Taylor Eubanks, Ridley: At 2-8, the Green Raiders haven’t had many reasons to celebrate. But Eubanks, a sophomore pitcher and outfielder, has raked. She slammed a home run and drove in six in an easy win against Harriton Thursday.
