GW Softball Loses Two on Second Day of Rebel Games
Wisconsin-Green Bay Wins 5-1, Fairleigh Dickinson 12-3
March 18, 2003
WASHINGTON, DC - The George Washington Colonials Softball team hoped to avenge two losses yesterday by posting their first win at the Rebel Games on Tuesday, March 18, but Wisconsin-Green Bay and Fairleigh Dickinson had other ideas, with wins of 5-1 and 12-3, respectively. The losses dropped the Colonials' record to 1-7 on the season.
Sophomore Jennifer Lawrence (Nassau, NY/Columbia) started for the Colonials and gave up two runs on three hits until being relieved by freshman Elana Meyers (Douglasville, GA/Lithia Springs) in the third. Meyers pitched well, but was a little wild, which combined with some sloppy fielding, allowed Wisonsin-Green Bay to put up three runs in the bottom of the sixth.
The Colonials got on the scoreboard with one run in the top of the second thanks to some swift base running by sophomore Maggie Landgrebe (Malverne, NY/Sacred Heart Academy), but that was all the offense they could muster and the game ended with a score of 5-1.
GW's second game of the day started just after the first one ended, and before the Colonials knew it, they were down 5-0 to Fairleigh Dickinson. A two-out rally drove sophomore starter Jaclyn Sanderson (Green Brook, NJ/Watchung Hills) off the mound and Lawrence came in to get the final out of the inning.
The Colonials couldn't recover from the slow start as Fairleigh Dickinson put up two more runs in the second and three in the third to take a commanding lead. GW showed some grit by getting three runs back in the bottom of the third, but could do no more as Fairleigh Dickinson tacked on two more runs to win 12-3 in six innings.
The Colonials will try and gain their second and third wins of the season tomorrow, Wednesday, March 19, when they take on Cornell and Columbia in the third day of their trip to Florida.
