The Six-seeded Neumann College Knights (30-12) fell to third seed Ramapo College (33-11) 7-3, in the first round of the NCAA Division III Atlantic Regional hosted by Salisbury University in Salisbury, Maryland.


"We played as well as we could today, this was a new experience for all of us and I don't think we could have done anything different," stated Angela Sebasto about the Knights performance.


Ramapo jumped out to an early lead in the bottom of the third inning off a three run homer by Cascino. With two outs, Christina Walsh finally put Neumann on the board with a full count single which scored Caitlin Hanrahan in the top of the fourth. Neumann then battled with the gloves holding Ramapo scoreless in the bottom of the fourth and ending the inning on a spectacular catch by Kristen Lawlor in deep right center field.


Neumann was unable to get the hits to fall in the top of the fifth, but had no plans of ending this historic appearance without a fight. After surviving a Ramapo three hit four-run rally in the bottom half, the Knights went on a two-run rally to close the gap 7-3. A RBI single by junior Kim Zlupko hit in lead off hitter Christina Walsh followed by an RBI base hit by Danielle Hayes who scored junior Chandra Moore.  


Starting pitcher Angela Sebasto, threw 100 pitches and allowed only 9 hits in the first game of the double elimination event. The freshman from Trenton, New Jersey, struck out five Roadrunners in her first tournament appearance.


The Knights will face the low scorer of the #5 King's College-#1 Methodist College match at 12:00 p.m. on Friday.
