Teams Play a Total of 23 Innings
April 6, 2003
ST. BONAVENTURE, NY - The George Washington Softball team played two close games, but couldn't get over the hump in dropping a pair to La Salle, 3-1 and 6-1, on Sunday, April 6 at the GW-Mount Vernon Softball Field. The losses dropped the Colonials record to 2-21 and 0-8 in the Atlantic 10.
In game one, the Colonials fell behind after La Salle scored the first run in the top of the fifth. GW managed to tie the game in the bottom of the seventh on a clutch RBI single by sophomore Jaclyn Sanderson (Green Brook, NJ/Watchung Hills). La Salle took the lead in the top of the eighth on a two-run double by Vinnie Caputo. The Colonials were unable to do any damage in their half of the eighth and the game ended, 3-1. Sophomore Jen Lawrence (Nassau, NY/Columbia) took the loss in the game and saw her record drop to 0-5 on the season.
The second game turned into a 15-inning marathon that saw each team threaten, but unable to break a 1-1 tie, until the top of the 15th. La Salle got on the scoreboard first with a run in the top of the third, but the Colonials answered with a run of their own on an RBI single by senior Edna Coonan (Hazlet, NJ/Raritan). The teams were scoreless over the next 11 innings until La Salle broke the game open with five runs in the top of the 15th. The Colonials battled but were unable to do any damage in their half of the 15th as the game ended, 6-1.
Coonan and senior Sammi Sordi (Boothwyn, PA/Chichester) each had two hits in the game, but it wasn't enough and freshman Elana Meyers (Douglasville, GA/Lithia Springs) took her ninth loss of the season.
The Colonials will take a break from conference play to take on George Mason in a doubleheader on Wednesday, April 9 at the GW-Mount Vernon Softball Field.
