ous play for the final out. After the game, Turner described his home runs. “It was a 3-and-1 count and he threw it right in the zone,” said Turner of the first. “The second was a 3-2 curve ball which I was sitting on.”

With respect to his fine fielding, Turner commented, “We are eight games into the season and I am getting the feel of it. I am feeling more comfortable at the position.”

Turner added, “As a team, we are hitting the ball better. Our offense has been keeping us in the games and we are picking up better on defense. So,

we are going to be pretty hard to beat.” Mistretta’s home run was quite influential. Mistretta commented, “It was a 1-1 curve ball and I hit it over the 342 sign.”

During the pre-season, the Blue Devils have been working hard on base stealing and continued their policy with the Tigers. “We have a lot of speed. It makes a lot of pitchers nervous,” said Mistretta. “I’m a pitcher and it makes me nervous.”

Westfield upped its record to 6-2 while Linden fell to 1-3.

By DAVID B. CORBIN

Specially Written for The Westfield Leader and The Times

The Westfield High School golf team got into the groove and defeated St. Peters Prep, 156-206, at Echo Lake Golf Course in Westfield on April 15. Blue Devils Brent Bramnick and Jeff Weber both shot 38 and teammate Ronnie Kashlak came in with a 39 followed by Brian Mann with a 41.

“We were really playing very solid today,” said Bramnick. “We got it back together. Earlier in the season, as a team, we all started out poorly. Before this match, everybody was upset with their performances. I was pleased that I was able to break the ice and get going again.”

Against St. Peters Prep, Bramnick, in his opinion, started out slowly. Beginning on the par 5 fourth hole, Bramnick drilled his drive into the trees but punched out onto the fairway, chipped onto the green and twoputted for his par.

On the par 4, fifth, he drove into the trees but salvaged a bogie five. Unfortunately, Bramnick doublebogied the sixth hole.

“Ronnie (Kashlak) encouraged me to settle down after that,” said

Bramnick. Bramnick began to roll and got a par on the par 3 seventh, using a 9iron to the green and two-putting. Momentum continued when he got birdies on both the par 4 eighth and ninth holes.

Good fortune struck on the first hole when Bramnick drilled his tee shot into the trees but it deflected off a branch and alit safely onto the ruff. He hit a lob-wedge onto the green and two-putted for the par. Bramnick also got a par on the short par 4 second hole and luck struck once again on the par four third hole when his tee shot ricocheted off another tree and onto the ruff.

“I definitely had a little bit of luck,” said Bramnick. “I guess that is part of the game.”

Being especially happy about how the rest of the Blue Devils played, Bramnick said, “Ronnie, Jeff and Brian are getting it back. Maybe we are getting the rust off a little bit. I guess that loss to Immaculata gave us a slap on the face and we decided that we needed to play tough.”

Bramnick added, “It works like a roller coaster. Hopefully it will jump start us to continue to do better.” The Blue Devils, however, did

dominate in the long jump and javelin events. Dennis placed first in the long jump with a leap of 15’ 11.75” and teammate Julie Elmuccio took second at 15’ 3.5” followed by Raider Hillman at 14’ 10.5”. Devil Allison Checchio whipped the javelin 96’ 4” for a first and teammate Dana Grau was second at 84’ 9”. Raider Feighner was third with a heave of 84’ 4”.

Elmuccio won the 100-hurdles with a time of :16.6 followed by Raiders Hillman at :17.3 and Sams at :17.7.

“I am cautiously optimistic. That was a big win for us. There’s no question about it,” said Klimas about his victory over the Blue Devils. “We still have to go up against Westfield in the counties, the county relays, the sections and the conference. Westfield is a very talented team that we will see several more times.”

Union County High School Varsity Softball Results:

Blue Devil Laxers Whip Princeton Girls, 11-7

The Westfield High School girls Varsity lacrosse team brought their record to .500 with a convincing, 117, victory over past nemesis Princeton on April 16 in Princeton during a spring downpour.

Six minutes into the contest, Kelsey Ill found an open Julia Gates for the score. One minute later Gates returned the favor assisting to a wide open first home and Ill gave the Blue Devils a 2-0 lead. Third home Kristen Salmond joined her teammates as she took a Jen Korecky pass and found an open net, then minutes later raced 50 yards from the center of the field to put Westfield ahead 4-0.

Princeton got on the board with seven minutes remaining in the first half only to be countered by Liz Winberrys’ acrobatic shot as she wove her way through several defenders and found the left hand corner from her right side. Winberry then from a free start had her shot rebound off the post to Gates who ended the half with Westfield leading 6-2.

As the skies opened up so did the lady Devils as they started the second half with Freshmen sensation Morgan Lang taking a Marina Powell feed and finding the back of the Tigers net. Korecky followed with her first score of the season and Salmond brought her season total to 17 as she scored three unanswered goals.

Defensively Donna Schaller, Aubrey McGovern and Lauren Mattes

were not buying any of Princeton’s plays and shut them down for most of the game. Captain Katie Gildea led the midfield defense along with defense wings Leigh Kendrick and Eliza Yannuzzi. Libby Schundler had a great day in net despite the conditions as she saved eight and ended most of the Princeton breakaways.

Westfield left cold, wet but happy as they evened their record to 2-2.
