GW Softball Drops a Pair To Mount St. Mary's
Sanderson Picks Up Two Hits and an RBI in Game 1
March 25, 2003
WASHINGTON, DC - The George Washington Softball team dropped both games of a doubleheader against Mount St. Mary's on Tuesday, March 25 in Emmitsburg, MD. The Colonials lost the first game on a run-scoring bunt, 3-2, and the second game, 4-2, after a three-run fifth by the Mounts. GW's record fell to 2-11 on the season.
The Colonials struck first in game one after senior Edna Coonan (Hazlet, NJ/Raritan) doubled to left and was singled home by sophomore Jaclyn Sanderson (Green Brook, NJ/Watchung Hills). Mount St. Mary's scored two runs in the bottom of the sixth, but the Colonials came right back on an RBI by sophomore Maggie Landgrebe (Malverne, NY/Sacred Heart Academy). GW was unable to tally any more runs and Mount St. Mary's scored the winning run on an RBI bunt by Chloe Mathus. Freshman Elana Meyers (Douglasville, GA/Lithia Springs) pitched a solid six innings in only giving up four hits while striking out 10 in the loss.
The Colonials rebounded from the tough loss in the first game to take a 1-0 lead after Meyers walked, reached third on a sacrifice by sophomore Ruthie Aerts (Boonton Twp., NJ/Mountain Lakes), and scored on an RBI by senior Sammi Sordi (Boothwyn, PA/Chichester). Mount St. Mary's tied the score in the bottom of the third on an RBI single by Jen Emel.
GW regained the lead in the top of the fifth on an RBI double by Meyers. But, the advantage would be short lived as Mount St. Mary's put up three runs in the bottom of the fifth to make the score 4-2, which turned out to be the final score. Sanderson took the loss for the Colonials after pitching four and a third innings while giving up five hits and three runs.
The Colonials will hit the road this weekend for doubleheaders against Saint Joseph's on Friday, March 28 at 2:30 p.m. and Temple on Sunday, March 30 at 12:00 p.m.
