Dayton Flies Past GW Softball in Doubleheader, 9-0 and 2-0
Colonials Still Searching For First A-10 Victory
April 11, 2003
WASHINGTON, DC - The George Washington Softball team dropped both games of a doubleheader against Dayton on Friday, April 11, at the GW-Mount Vernon Softball Field. The losses dropped the Colonials record to 2-23 and 0-10 in conference play.
In game one, Dayton pitcher Dana Campbell baffled GW hitters on her way to a five-inning no-hitter. The Colonials fell behind in the top of the third when Dayton put up three runs. They added another run in the fourth and five runs in the fifth. Dayton centerfielder Cassie Gross tallied the first homerun at the GW-Mount Vernon Softball Field en route to the Flyers 9-0 victory.
The Colonials played Dayton close in the second game and were tied through five innings. Senior Alison Scimeca (Latham, NY/Shaker) broke through in the fifth with the first hit of the day for GW, but the Colonials couldn't do any damage. Dayton got on the scoreboard in the top of the sixth after Traci Weinheimer scored on a wild pitch by freshman Elana Meyers (Douglasville, GA/Lithia Springs). GW threatened in the bottom of the sixth after senior Sammi Sordi (Boothwyn, PA/Chichester) walked and sophomore Jen Lawrence (Nassau, NY/Columbia) advanced pinch runner sophomore Ruthie Aerts (Boonton Twp., NJ/Mountain Lakes) to second on the Colonials second hit of the game. The threat ended when sophomore Jaclyn Sanderson (Green Brook, NJ/Watchung Hills) grounded out to end the inning. Dayton added another run in the top of the seventh and the Colonials could do no damage in their half of the seventh to end the game, 2-0.
The Colonials will try and get in the win column when they travel to Lewisburg, PA on Wednesday, April 16 to play a doubleheader against Bucknell.
