Sisters in arms

Central wins first Division 1 North title in five years

(Continued)

Ciccolo said that Leavitt has seen the ball well all season.

“She’s been a very clutch hitter for us,” Ciccolo said. “She has come up with a clutch hit so many times I can’t even count it. She really stays very composed in the box, makes good decisions and really drives the ball hard.”

Antczak allowed two runs — no earned runs — on five hits and one walk while striking out six batters.

“She was just hitting her spots and she was just very composed and she is honestly the most mentally tough pitcher that I’ve played with or seen,” Leavitt said. “And she just holds her own out there. ... She did in the last game, too. She’s just been awesome for us all year. ... I wouldn’t want to get up against her.”

The key inning for Antczak was the third when she held Newton North scoreless after the first two batters reached.

“I actually didn’t think she had her best stuff today but when we needed her to, I felt like she buckled down and made a good pitch,” Ciccolo said. “She came up with a strikeout or produced a good ground ball out when necessary.”
