BERLIN- Decatur’s varsity softball team took its first loss of the season on Monday in the home opener, falling to Colonel Richardson, 12-1.
The Seahawks opened the season last week with a 25-6 rout of Wicomico, followed by a 7-4 win over Bennett. Decatur improved to 3-0 with a win over Northampton last Friday. In that contest, Lexi Black pitched a complete game and struck out seven, while Amber Whittaker went 4-4 at the plate.
On Monday, the Seahawks faced Colonel Richardson at home with Black on the mound, but the Colonels scored early and often on their way to a 12-1 rout. With the loss, Decatur dropped to 3-1 on the season. The Seahawks face Kent Island on the road on Friday, followed by another road game against Wicomico next Monday. They won’t play at home again until next Friday against Worcester County rival Snow Hill.
