FAIRFIELD, Conn. – The Marist softball team (27-24, 16-4 MAAC) fell in a close contest (1-0) to the Manhattan Jaspers (25-28, 10-10 MAAC) in game nine of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) Championships to close out the 2013-14 season.

Junior Taylor Kuzma (Freehold, N.J.) started the hitting in the top of the first, claiming her first hit of the tournament. Senior Alyssa Zahka (Lexington, Mass.) walked, but both runners would be stranded to close out the half of the inning for Marist. Junior Melanie White (Highlands Ranch, Colo.) forced the Jaspers to leave one on as she posted two strikeouts for the Red Foxes in the first.

After freshman Rebecca Freeman (Robbinsville, N.J.) walked, senior Aly Klemmer (Hamilton, N.J.) would reach on a fielder’s choice after she laid down a bunt, as the Jaspers committed a throwing error to second. Both runners would be left on base though, as the matchup remained scoreless.

To kick off the third inning, sophomore Kyrsten Van Natta (Maplewood, N.J.) laid down a bunt and reached on an error. Freshman Janna Korak (Huntsville, Ala.) singled to right field to place runners on the corners, but Marist would leave both on base. White went on to strike out the side, as she posted seven strikeouts in just three innings.

In the top of the fifth, Van Natta reached for the second time in the outing before Kuzma singled to right field. Zahka walked for the second time in the outing to load the bases. Unfortunately, the Red Foxes would leave the bases loaded to close out the top of the inning. White answered back for Marist, as she tied her career-high nine strikeouts to close out the bottom of the fifth.

Manhattan claimed the lead, as the Jaspers notched a run after placing runners on second and third. The Jaspers capitalized on a single to left center for the only run in the outing.

Kuzma led Marist with three hits in the outing, while Korak added one as well. Zahka led the Red Foxes defensively with nine putouts, while White added three assists. In the circle, White notched nine strikeouts, only allowing four hits in six innings pitched.
