Feb. 14, 2009
CHAPEL HILL, NC - The George Washington University softball team fell to the University of North Carolina, 8-0 in five innings, in its 2009 season opener and opening game of the Carolina Classic in Chapel Hill, NC, Friday.
"Overall we played OK," head coach Kim Staehle said. "We held UNC to only two runs in the first inning."
Junior pitcher Amanda Gabriel was in the circle for the Colonials and kept two of the Tarheels' and ACC best hitters off the base baths all game.
"Amanda threw exceptionally well for us today," Staehle said. "She came out tight and she felt it, but she still threw the ball well."
GW is back in action Saturday in the Carolina Classic against Penn State at 12:30 p.m. and California at 5:30 p.m.
