🌱 Tenant Selection Companies + CHS Softball Team Wins + Local Pitcher

Happy Friday neighbours! Here’s everything you need to know to start the day. Here’s what’s happening in town today.

First, today’s weather forecast:

Getting windier and cooler. High: 54 Low: 33.

Here are the top three stories in Catonsville today:

  1. Landlords in Maryland rely heavily on tenant screening companies that compile information beyond what’s found in tenants’ credit reports, including criminal history, eviction records, and more. But tenant screening is less regulated, the algorithms used are not accurate, and errors are common due to false eviction reports or criminal records. Also, tenants usually cannot get information about why they were considered a risk. Kim Fuller and her 83-year-old mother had to move out of Baltimore because they kept getting turned down by tenant screening companies, even though she had a good credit rating. Fuller and her mother moved to Catonsville instead. (Raw story)
  2. The Catonsville girls’ softball team won five to four against Towson on March 30 at Catonsville High School. Senior Maggie Kreis pitched all game and struck out seven batters. Abby Mitchell had two doubles and scored two runs. Catonsville coach Paul Harris said Mitchell “was awesome today, she got our team MVP because of it. She did a tremendous job.” (Baltimore Sun)
  3. Junior Erin Kreisof Catonsville, is a pitcher for the Stevens Institute of Technology softball team. On March 30, Kreis struck out three batters, allowed just two hits through the first four innings, and allowed just one earned run through six innings. (Stevens Institute of Technology)
