The Cicero Prep Centurions middle school team watched the game slip away early and couldn’t recover in a 9-3 loss to Veritas Prep on Monday. Veritas scored on a single and a triple early in the first inning. Cicero put 3 runs on the board but had a tough time defensively containing Veritas, giving up nine runs.
Ava Jazwin was on the mound for the Centurions. She allowed three hits and eight runs over two and a third innings, striking out five. Lily Allen threw one and two-thirds innings in relief.
Allen led Cicero with two hits in two at bats, and Darby Williams crushed a single to left center field. The Centurions didn’t commit a single error in the field. Jazwin had the most chances in the field with three, and made some dazzling plays with her glove.
The Centurions (0-1) return to the field on Tuesday vs Glendale Prep looking for their first victory!
