Cooperstown 2, CV 0
Freshman Maria Noto struck out eight, walked four and allowed three hits in her varsity debut Wednesday, leading the Cooperstown softball team to a 2-0 victory over host Central Valley Academy in the Center State Conference.
The Hawkeyes scored twice in the first inning of their season opener. Christina Noto reached first on an error before Maggie Hall singled to put runners at the corners. Christina Noto then scored on a fielder’s choice that also moved Hall to third. Ellen Vibbard followed with a sacrifice fly that drove in Hall to cap the scoring.
Christina Noto finished with a double and two singles for Cooperstown, which received two hits from Hall.
“I was real happy to play error-free ball on our first day on the field,” Cooperstown coach Dave Bliss said. “We have a young team and we’re looking to build on this in the future.”
