Aquinas, Coral Reef softball win classic championships

 

From Miami Herald Staff Reports

The Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas softball team won the final of the blue division at the Kissimmee Klassic with a 5-3 victory over Kissimmee Osceola on Saturday night.

Gwen Svekis, who was named tournament offensive MVP, homered and went 3 for 3 in the final. The Raiders’ scored four runs in the first two innings, and that proved to be enough.

Erica Nori and Meghan King, who were awarded co-MVP pitching honors, combined to preserve the lead. Nori earned the win Saturday while giving up three earned runs off four hits in 4 1/3 innings pitched.

King, who also pitched a complete game earlier in the day against Delray American Heritage, shut the door on Osceola in relief of Nori to earn the save.

Miami Coral Reef won the final of the gold division with a 7-6 victory over Naples Barron Collier.
