Danielle Lazorka (Williamsport, Jersey Shore) led the Huskies going 3-3 with a run scored and an RBI.

In a 4-2 win over St. Joe's of Indiana Lazorka went 3-3 with two runs scored to lead Bloomsburg to the win. Shavaun Fisher (Coplay, Allentown Central Catholic) tossed a four-hitter for the Huskies striking out 10 and walking seven. Mandy Koch (Dauphin, Central Dauphin), Emily Young (Nescopeck, Central Columbia)and Mauro all drove in runs for the Huskies.

The final game of the day had the Huskies beating Queens of New York, 3-0. Lazora again led the offense going 2-2 with two runs scored, while Jenna Hampton (Catawissa, Southern Columbia) had two RBI and Koch one. Fisher picked up the win for the Huskies allowing just two hits and striking out 10 and not allowing a walk.

For the day Lazorka went 8-8 for the Huskies with five run scored, while Fisher pitched 14 innings, had 20 strike outs and allowed just six hits.
