NORMAN, Okla. - The Marist softball team saw its 2013 season come to an end in the Norman Regionals of the NCAA Tournament with a 5-3 setback versus Fordham. The Red Foxes (30-26) fought throughout versus the third-seeded Rams (36-22), even outhitting them, before falling to three late Fordham runs in the fifth and sixth innings.

Senior Danielle Koltz (Chenango Bridge, N.Y.), junior Alyssa Zahka (Lexington, Mass.) and freshman Kyrsten Van Natta (Maplewood, N.J.) led Marist’s offense as each player had a pair of hits.

In her final collegiate start Emily Osterhaus (Suwanee, Ga.) threw a complete game, allowing five runs (three earned), while striking out two Rams.

Marist immediately challenged Fordham in the first inning, as Maureen Duddy (San Mateo, Calif.) walked and Koltz singled up the middle to put two runners on with no outs. Three consecutive put outs by the Rams would quell Marist’s attempt to score first.

Fordham would break through in the bottom of the second inning by stringing together a walk and two singles to go up 1-0.

The Rams extended their lead to two runs with back-to-back two out hits in the third; first a single and then a double to right-center by Gaby Luety.

In the top of the fourth inning, Marist tied it up by sending eight batters up to the plate. Consecutive singles by Nicole Cheek (Simi Valley, Calif.), Zahka and Aly Klemmer (Hamilton, N.J.) loaded the bases for Van Natta, who stepped in and hit an infield single deep into the six-hole for Marist’s first RBI of the tournament. The following batter, Janine Lalli (Eastchester, N.Y.) singled to center field to tie the game up at 2-2. Back-to-back ground outs and consequential force outs at home would hold Marist from scoring further.

A pair of unearned runs in the bottom of the fifth inning would put Fordham back in the lead at 4-2.

After the Rams expanded their lead three at 5-2 with a two-out RBI single, the Red Foxes responded with one final rally. Koltz led off the inning with a screaming double to the left-center field gap. Zahka advanced Koltz to third base with a single to right field before Klemmer drove in Marist’s final run with an RBI groundout.

With the result, Marist bids farewell to its five player senior class of Emily Osterhaus, Danielle Koltz, Joelle Zahka, Christina Lausch and Sarah Carmody, who won 101 games over their four-year career as Red Foxes.
