Duo Wins ASA National Title
The Notebook
Virginia Tech rising seniors Angela Tincher and Carolina Stolle of the softball team picked up national championships last weekend in Stratford, Conn. The two played for the Virginia Legends, an all-star squad that competed in the ASA Women's 23 and Under National Championship.

Tincher picked up the loss in pool play against Frozen Ropes, but rebounded from that point on to win three games in a row. She shut out the Stratford Brakettes, striking out eight, before pitching a two-hit shutout with six strikeouts in the semifinal against the Frozen Ropes. In the championship game, she entered the game in relief, picking up the 3-2 win in eight innings over the Brakettes again. For her performance, she was named an ASA All-American.

Stolle hit the ball well all weekend, picking up several doubles and key hits for a .250 average. In the championship game, she picked up two hits and drove in the game-tying run with a single to center, a game the Legends won in extra innings. She also had a double off first-team All-American Katie Burkhart of Arizona State in the tournament.
