4/20/11 Game 1: SCCC - 0, Brookdale CC - 2 Game 2: SCCC - 0, Brookdale CC - 1  Excellent pitching by sophomore Melissa Kanouse (Morris Catholic) and solid defense all around only provided two of the necessary three components to win yesterday vs. Brookdale Community College in Lincroft yesterday.  Kanouse struck out five Jersey Blues batters in each game and yielded 7 hits in each game as well as she mixed speeds keeping opposing batters off balance.

4/17/11 Game 1: SCCC - 9, Cumberland CC - 0 Game 2: SCCC - 11, Cumberland CC - 0  The Skylanders traveled to Cumberland County College yesterday and went to work early against their region and conference foes.  SCCC struck early, scoring six runs in the first inning to stake sophomore pitcher Melissa Kanouse (Morris Catholic) with a nice lead.  With one out and sophomore Kelli Costa (Lenape Valley) on base with a single, freshman Brook Goldsberry (Jefferson) sliced a ball down the right field line that ran to the corner.
