Colpitts looked to be in mid-season form as she picked up the complete game shutout allowing just three hits while walking one and striking out 13. Schultz went 3-for-4 for the game with two fourth inning RBI

Hermon is scheduled to open their regular season with two games in Caribou on Thursday, April 21, but those games may be pushed back into May due to problems with the Vikings field being ready. Hampden Academy is scheduled to open their season at home on Wednesday, April 20 with a 12:00 p.m. game against Brewer.
