Cosby Sweeps Atlee in Baseball, Softball....

It was a profitable trip from Chesterfield County to Atlee High School Monday night.

In games postponed from April 25th, the Cosby baseball squad jumped on the Raiders early, scoring six runs in the first en route to a 12-2, five inning win over Atlee. The size of the loss was surprising, as Atlee fell to 10-5 overall. They are 5-2 in the Capital District as they attempt to stay within striking distance of the District regular season title.

On the next field over, the Raiders softball team shut out Cosby for six innings, but couldn't keep them off the board in the final frame. Chelsea Whitcomb hit a Grand Slam home run in the top of the seventh to lead Cosby to a 4-1 win over the Raiders. Whitcomb was the Titans' starting pitcher, giving up one run on three hits over four innings. Kirsten Copley came in relief of Whitcomb in the fifth and retired the Raiders in order in three consecutive innings to set the stage for the Cosby comeback.

Jessica Holte took the loss, striking out six and walking one, giving up three earned runs and six hits.

The Raiders are now 12-3 on the season, still 6-1 in the Capital District as they prepare for a showdown tomorrow night at Hanover, winners of five straight including handing Patrick Henry their first loss of the season last Wednesday night.
