Decatur Bows Out of 3A-East Tourney

BERLIN- Stephen Decatur’s varsity softball team dropped a tough won, 3-0, to Reservoir on Monday in the 3A-East region quarterfinals to close out what was otherwise a remarkable season for the Seahawks.

Decatur entered the state 3A-East region tournament and earned a number-two seed and a first-round bye. Against Reservoir on Monday, the Seahawks could get little going offensively and fell, 3-0, despite fine pitching and defense. With the loss in the region quarterfinals, the Seahawks finished the 2013 campaign with a 14-5 record.

The Seahawks started the season on a major roll, winning their first 10 games to start out 10-0. They suffered their first loss to Mardela, 3-2, back on April 18, and fell to Wicomico, 6-4, on May 2. Decatur then lost its last two regular season games to Bennett and Indian River, but still earned a number-two seed in the 3A-East tournament.
