Lehigh Valley's Carpenter Cup softball team, which includes Northampton High School catcher, Hannah Peters, defeated Philadelphia Catholic's Carpenter Cup team, 10-5, in its first game of the double-elimination tournament on Monday at FDR Park in Philadelphia.

Peters caught for the first half of the game with Pen Argyl's Emily Smull doing the pitching.

"It was good. She hit her spots well. It was a good match-up. She got the work done," Peters said.

Philadelphia Catholic took a 2-0 lead in the first inning, but Lehigh Valley was not concerned.

Northampton High School softball catcher, Hannah Peters, had plenty of reasons to try out for the Lehigh Valley Carpenter Cup Softball team last month.

"I knew a couple girls who were on it before, and they said it was a good time. It was a good experience to go to Philly, and it's important to me to expand my comfort zone," Peters said.

Soon after, Peters found out she made the team, which will compete in a double-elimination tournament at FDR Park in Philadelphia later this month.

Jackson followed his advice, and ultimately, completed the race in 21:03.

"I took it out pretty hard and wasn't terribly tired. I just wanted to stay up more, but I'm really happy with my time," Jackson said.

This was Jackson's second trip to Parkview, although her first race there was two years ago.
