GW Softball Ends Rebel Games With 4-3 Win Over Vermont
Meyers Picks Up Second Win On The Season
March 21, 2003
WASHINGTON, DC - The George Washington Softball team played inspired softball in a win over Vermont, 4-3, on Friday, March 21 to end their trip to Florida. The win brings the Colonials record to 2-9 on the season.
Freshman Elana Meyers (Douglasville, GA/Lithia Springs) pitched out of some tough situations in only giving up three runs to pick up her second victory of the season. She also helped the Colonials offense with an RBI triple in the top of the third.
Vermont got on the scoreboard first with an RBI double by Angie Totaro, who later scored on a sacrifice fly, to put Vermont up 2-0 after the second. But instead of folding up the tents, the Colonials came right back to get four runs in the top of the third.
Freshman Lissa Moses (Hamden, CT/Choate Rosemary Hall) got things started with a single up the middle. She scored on the triple by Meyers. Sophomore Ruthie Aerts (Boonton Twp., NJ/Mountain Lakes) then reached on a fielder's choice that saw Meyers get caught in a rundown, but return to third safely, while Aerts advanced to second. Senior Sammi Sordi (Boothwyn, PA/Chichester) laid down a nice squeeze bunt that brought Meyers in. Sophomore Jennifer Lawrence (Nassau, NY/Columbia) was next with an RBI single to left center that scored Aerts and advanced Sordi to third. With two outs, sophomore Jaclyn Sanderson (Green Brook, NJ/Watchung Hills) plated the fourth run of the inning with a clutch single to left.
The score stayed the same through the fourth inning, but Vermont loaded the bases in the fifth and Meyers gave up a run after a wild pitch. She didn't panic and got the third out of the inning on a strikeout. Vermont loaded the bases again in the sixth inning, but Meyers ended the threat with another strikeout.
The teams played through light rain in the fifth and the sixth, but the rain became heavy after the sixth. The game was called and the Colonials picked up the hard-earned victory to gain their second win of the season and finish the Rebel Games on a high note.
The Colonials second game of the day was cancelled due to the heavy rain, so the Colonials will look to win their second in a row on Tuesday, March 25, when they travel to Emmitsburg, MD for a doubleheader against Mount St. Mary's.
