Rebel Games Unkind to GW Softball on Day Three
Cornell Wins 8-0, Columbia 10-0
March 19, 2003
WASHINGTON, DC - The George Washington Softball team continued its cold streak, dropping two more games, one to Cornell, 8-0, and one to Columbia, 10-0, on the third day of their trip to the Rebel Games in Kissimee, FL.
The Colonials played well through the first three innings against Cornell, but couldn't get their bats going. Cornell was able to break through in the bottom of the fourth with three runs, and they added four more in the bottom of the fifth on their way to the 8-0 victory.
Sophomore Jennifer Lawrence (Nassau, NY/Columbia) pitched well only giving up four hits, but she was bettered by Cornell starter Whitney Smith who didn't allow a Colonial hit on route to her second win of the season.
In game two, the Colonials got out of a first inning jam that saw Columbia load the bases by only giving up one run, but they couldn't take advantage of their good fortune. Columbia scored five runs in the third, benefiting from a costly throwing error by the Colonials that allowed two runs to score. Columbia added four more in the fourth before the game ended after the fifth inning, 10-0.
GW will take tomorrow off, regroup and look to pick up a couple of victories on Friday, March 21, when they take on Vermont and Towson.
