The Yeshiva University softball team made school history on Tuesday afternoon by playing its first varsity game in school history. The Maccabees were led by Teaneck natives Erin Potasnick, Merav Saden Barach and Kayla Applebaum.
Yeshiva made a statement from the outset that it is ready to play as Potasnick hit a two-run inside- the-park homerun in the top of the first to get the Maccabees out in front 2-0.
York, though, scored four in the bottom of the first to take a 4-2 lead. Yeshiva did not go away quietly though as the Maccabees tied the score in the top of the third when Potasnick ripped a single that scored two runs to make the score 4-4 after two-and-a-half innings.
All told, the Maccabees scored five runs but came up short as they lost 13-5 to York College.
