NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- The College of New Rochelle softball team continued its hot start to the 2017 season with a pair of wins over John Jay College Monday night at Flowers Park.  With the 13-4 and 10-0 wins, the Blue Angels have now won four in a row and seven of their last eight games.  The four straight wins is a new program record, as the team now stands at 8-2.

Sophomore Victoria Rivera (Bronx, NY) is still unbeaten on the mound, as she won the first game and is now 6-0 on the season.  Freshmen Emily Perez (Queens, NY) won her 2nd game of the year and first career shutout, as CNR won game two 10-0 in five innings.  Perez took a no-hitter into the fifth inning, before surrendering a single.

Game 1

CNR pounded out 13 hits, led by freshmen Victoria Holmes (Franklin, VA) who finished with a 3-for-4 performance, driving in two and scoring three. Rivera had a base-clearing 3-RBI double. Freshmen Alexandra Czarkosky (Chesire, CT) drove in an insurance run with two outs, after CNR went up by eight in the bottom of the fourth.  

Game 2

Freshmen Samantha Gutierrez (Fullerton, CA) and Junior Kevona Jackson (Yonkers, NY) both went yard for CNR in the third and fourth innings, consecutively, to open up a 2-0 lead.  The wheels came off for John Jay after the Jackson roundtripper,  Holmes highlighted the nine additional runs, with a three-RBI double.

The wins avenge two losses, 2-0 and 12-1, to the Bloodhounds last year
