Whenever a player on the Bishop McGann-Mercy softball team gets a new bat, good things seem to happen. On Wednesday it was junior Kate Wilkie’s turn.

Wilkie christened her new bat by socking her first career home run, a three-run job that sent the Monarchs on the way to an 11-9 win over Port Jefferson in Riverhead. The game was played in raw conditions, with rain beginning to fall about halfway through and the temperatures in the mid-40s.
