WASHINGTON, DC - The George Washington University softball team split its games on the first day of the GW Invitational on Saturday, Feb. 28, at Mount Vernon Field. The Colonials won for the first time this season with a 4-0 victory over Manhattan, then dropped a 3-0 decision to Colgate.
In other games in the GW Invitational Saturday, Mount St. Mary's defeated Manhattan, 6-5; Colgate defeated Mount St. Mary's, 7-1; and Colgate defeated Manhattan, 3-0. Each game was limited to 90 minutes due to the fact the field is not lighted.
Freshman Gabby Culp (Desoto, TX/Bishop Dunne) pitched both games for George Washington (1-3-1), picking up her first career shutout against Manhattan (0-3). Culp allowed three hits over six innings vs. the Jaspers, walking two and striking out 10. She gave up six hits vs. Colgate (3-0), walking three and fanning five.
Against Manhattan, George Washington got on the scoreboard in the bottom of the first inning as sophomore Elana Meyers (Douglasville, GA/Lithia Springs) walked and scored as freshman Lisa Cohen (Langhorne, PA/Neshaminy) reached on a throwing error. The Colonials capped their scoring with three runs in the fourth. Freshman Katy Harrigan (Reading, PA/Reading Memorial) doubled, stole third base and scored on a single by freshman Colleen Kegler (Yardley, PA/Pennsbury) to make the score 2-0, while sophomore Kristen Miller (Rochelle Park, NJ/Academy for Medical Science Tech) and Meyers later scored on a single by Cohen.
Colgate pitcher Kate Howard allowed just two hits over five innings, walking one and striking out six, to shut down George Washington. The Raiders scored single runs in the second, third and fourth innings as Nichole Rawson and Kim Olmstead each had two hits.
