Softball Splits With Maryland-Eastern Shore
Sanderson Picks Up First Win of the Season in Game 2
April 23, 2003
PRINCESS ANNE, MD - The George Washington Softball team won their third game of the season on Wednesday, April 23, with a 9-3 victory over Maryland-Eastern Shore in the second game of a doubleheader. The Colonials dropped the first game 6-0 to bring their record to 3-26 on the season.
In game one, GW threatened in the top of the first after senior Sammi Sordi (Boothwyn, PA/Chichester) walked and advanced to third on an error by the Maryland-Eastern Shore shortstop, that allowed sophomore Jen Lawrence (Nassau, NY/Columbia) to reach first. But, the Colonials were unable to push any runs across. The Hawks took advantage in the bottom of the first by tallying four runs.
GW had a difficult time with Maryland-Eastern Shore pitcher Chrissy Mason, who didn't allow a hit in game one. The Hawks added two insurance runs in the bottom of the sixth and finished the game with a 6-0 victory.
The Colonials' bats came alive in game two producing ten hits, which helped sophomore Jaclyn Sanderson (Green Brook, NJ/Watchung Hills) secure her first win of the season. GW got on the board in the top of the first after freshman Elana Meyers (Douglasville, GA/Lithia Springs) singled to center and advanced around the diamond to score on a wild pitch. The Colonials then broke the game open in the top of the second on a three-run inside-the-park homerun by Meyers. She drove in freshman Kristen Miller (Rochelle Park, NJ/Academy for Medical Science), who had singled and sophomore Ashley Atkin (Swampscott, MA/Swampscott), who walked.
Maryland-Eastern Shore put up one run in the bottom of the second, but the Colonials answered right back with two runs in the top of the third. GW added three more runs in the top of the sixth, which was highlighted by a two-run double from sophomore Ruthie Aerts (Boonton Twp., NJ/Mountain Lakes).
Sanderson pitched seven strong innings to pick up her first win of the season and Kristen Miller tallied three hits to lead the Colonials to a 9-3 victory.
The Colonials will try for their first back-to-back wins when they take on George Mason on Friday, April 25 at 2:00 p.m. at the GW-Mount Vernon Softball Field.
