Miller walked just one batter and struck out 10.

Chambersburg coach Chris Skultety said, “She threw a nice game, and was really hitting her spots.”

The top batters for the Trojans (2-1, 2-1 MPC) included Karley Skultety, who was 3-for-4 with a double; Sam Paetow, who was 3-for-4 and drove in 2 runs; Addison Gsell, who was 2-for-3 with a double and 2 RBIs; and Carly Benedict, who had a hit, 2 walks and drove in 3 runs.

Reed Myers

State College 3, Chambersburg 0: The Little Lions proved to be rude hosts Tuesday evening and turned away the Trojans in a Mid Penn Commonwealth contest in State College.

“We came out really slow,” Chambersburg coach Ray Frazer said. “We struggled to pass State College’s serves and made a lot of errors in the first two games.

“State College played really good defense and made it difficult for us to earn a point. We started to pick it up a little in the third and finally started swinging aggressively and creating points.”
The Little Lions won by scores of 25-11, 25-15 and 25-23.
Reed Myers led Chambersburg (1-3, 0-3 MPC) in assists (10) and digs (5). Reid Leidig led the team in kills with 4.
