Long-time rivals the Bishop Kearney Tigers faced off against the St. Edmund’s Eagles in a nail-bitting, sit on the edge of your seat, battle of the century, tie-breaking game on May 11 during the Catholic Schools Sports Athletic Association games. Junior pitcher Gina Piro pitched a no-hitter, but the Tiger offensive gave her an 11 run lead by scoring 11 in the top of the first inning. The Eagles won the first meet 2–1, and then the Tigers came back with a vengeance and trounced the Eagles, winning the second match 5–3 and forcing the tie-breaker.

Head coach Nick Traini told Standing O, “It was a great game between two equally matched teams. I’m looking forward to facing off against them [the Eagles], in the playoffs next week.”

Softball-bombers Gina Piro, Allison Gasparino, Amanda DilLeo, Katie McManoman, Francesca Ingargiola, Samantha Simon, Kristin Ferrigno, Erin Cullen, Shelby Zamora, Joanna Molloy, Erin O’Conner, and Amanda Duffy played flawlessly and gave 110 percent to cement the win.

Standing O is getting her lawn chair dusted off and ready in anticipation of the challenge of the century. Go Team!

Bishop Kearney High School [2202 60th St. between 23rd Avenue and Bay Parkway in Bensonhurst, (718) 236–6363].
