'Jacks all business in Florida
Chesapeake College blanks Camden County to finish 6-2-1 on trip

COCOA BEACH, Fla. – It may have been their Spring Break, but the Skipjacks were all business this past week in Florida.

Bryan Woolford and Evan Ford combined on a two-hit shutout as Chesapeake College’s baseball team blanked Camden County (N.J.) Community College, 4-0, Thursday night in the final game of its spring trip. The Skipjacks (11-3-1) finish 6-2-1 on the trip.

"Everyone got a chance to play on the trip and everyone contributed," said Chesapeake assistant coach Mike Loetz.

The Skipjacks turned four first-inning errors by Camden into three runs and added an insurance run in the fifth. J.V. Herbert (3-for-4, two RBI) had a run-scoring hit in the first-inning uprising, but most of the damage was self-inflicted by the Camden defense.

The first-inning runs provided all the support necessary for Woolford and Ford, who completely overmatched Camden’s hitters. Woolford allowed two hits and a walk while striking out five in five innings, while Ford walked one and struck out four in two hitless innings.

"Bryan went right at their hitters and we played great defense behind both pitchers," said Loetz. "For Evan, this was the third time he struck out the side in the seventh inning during the Florida trip."

The Skipjacks, 9-2-1 over their past 12 games, return to league play Tuesday when they play a Maryland Junior College Athletic Conference doubleheader at Allegany College of Maryland. Chesapeake is currently 3-1 in league play.
