GW Softball Starts Philly Swing on Down Note With Two Losses to Saint Joseph's
First Conference Games End 7-2 and 6-0
March 28, 2003
PHILADELPHIA, PA - The George Washington Softball team dropped their first Atlantic 10 Conference games to Saint Joseph's on Friday, March 28 at East Norriton Field in Philadelphia, PA. The losses, 7-2 and 6-0, dropped the Colonials record to 2-13 on the season and 0-2 in conference.
GW fell behind early in the first game after the Hawks took a 3-0 lead at the end of the first inning. The ladies were unable to do any damage on offense and Saint Joseph's put the game out of reach with a four-run fourth inning. The Colonials did get on the scoreboard in the fifth when sophomore Jaclyn Sanderson (Green Brook, NJ/Watchung Hills) doubled in two runs, but GW could do no more damage, and the game ended in Saint Joseph's favor, 7-2.
The Colonials luck didn't change in the second game as they found themselves trailing again after the first inning, 1-0. Saint Joseph's pitcher, Dana Travis, baffled GW hitters in only giving up one hit while adding 10 strikeouts. Freshman Elana Meyers (Douglasville, GA/Lithia Springs) bunted her way on in the top of the third, but that was all the offense GW could muster. The Hawks added a run in the second and four in the third to end the game, 6-0 and complete the sweep.
GW will try and get the bats going on Sunday, March 30 when they look for the first conference win in George Washington Softball history against Temple.
