QUEENS, N.Y. (Oct. 12, 2011)-- The St. John's softball team held its sixth annual 100-out fundraiser and exhibition game on Sunday at Red Storm Field. The team split into two squads and played until 100 outs were recorded.
"Our annual 100-Out Fundraiser is such a great event for our program," head coach Amy Kvilhaug said. "We are utilizing time for quality practice hours and are fortunate to raise dollars in the process."
In the 2011 game, Team Red faced off against Team Storm, with Team Storm claiming a 32-10 victory. Team Red was made up of seniors Meghan Gwynn and Julia Sanchez, junior Dominique Marcelino, sophomores Ashley Beza, Kelsey Moyer and Myriah Rodgers and freshmen Erin Burner and MacKenna Neuroth.
Team Storm was made up of seniors Kacee Cox and Kristi Cady, juniors Chrissy Montez and Summer Comstock, sophomore Aleshia Link and freshmen Fran Carrullo, Ellen Czuba and Zoe Yeung. Kvilhaug and assistant coach Andy Russo served as umpires with Russo playing third base for a few innings. Sophomore Jackie Reed served as the third base coach for both teams, while sophomore Michelle Tilson served as the official scorekeeper and scoreboard operator.
"The fundraiser is a win/win situation, making our team and program better on a number of different levels," Kvilhaug said. "Playing 100-Outs allows us to touch on many situational, live aspects of the game while getting a great deal of work and practice in."
As of the first pitch on Sunday, the Red Storm had raised over $4500 to help the team continue to build upon its rich softball tradition.
"We would like to extend a sincere thank you to those who have already donated," Kvilhaug said. "Also, it is still not too late to donate if you are interested in doing so."
