Softball Falls to St. Bonaventure
Lawrence Smacks Her Second Homer of the Season in Game 2
April 5, 2003
ST. BONAVENTURE, NY - The George Washington Softball team hit the ball better than it has all season, but it wasn't enough, as they dropped both games of a doubleheader versus St. Bonaventure, 11-4 and 9-5. The Colonials record is now 2-19 on the season and 0-6 in the Atlantic 10.
The Colonials jumped out in front in the top of the first after freshman Elana Meyers (Douglasville, GA/Lithia Springs) tripled and scored on a sacrifice fly by senior Edna Coonan (Hazlet, NJ/Raritan). The Bonnies struck right back after Tricia Hildebrand singled in Kim Dodson. St. Bonaventure broke the game open in the second and third innings with four and three runs, respectively. GW fought back in the top of the fourth, scoring three runs on a pair of doubles by sophomores Jen Lawrence (Nassau, NY/Columbia) and Monica Foote (Youngstown, NY/Lewiston-Porter), but the Bonnies added one more in the fifth and two in the sixth to produce the 11-4 final.
Despite taking the loss on the mound, Meyers had two hits and sophomore Jaclyn Sanderson (Green Brook, NJ/Watchung Hills) went three for three to aid the Colonials on their way to eight hits in the game.
In game two, the Colonials fell behind 2-0 after the first, but struck back with two of their own in the top of the second. St. Bonaventure answered with two runs in the bottom of the second, but GW showed some resiliency by scoring two more in the top of the third on an RBI bunt single by senior Sammi Sordi (Boothwyn, PA/Chichester) and an RBI single by Jen Lawrence. The Colonials could only manage one more run on Jen Lawrence's second homerun of the season, while the Bonnies tallied three runs in the fourth and two more in the sixth to finish the game with the win, 9-5.
The Colonials posted nine hits in the loss and their total of 17 hits on the day was their most impressive offensive output on the season. The team will look to build on this performance and end their losing streak when they take on Dayton in a doubleheader on Sunday, April 6 at the GW-Mount Vernon Softball field.
