GW Softball Falls to Saint Louis, 7-4
Valos Matches Single-Season Doubles Record
April 25, 2014
WASHINGTON - Junior Victoria Valos equaled GW's single-season doubles record with her 17th of the season, but the George Washington softball team fell to Atlantic 10 rival Saint Louis, 7-4, on Friday afternoon at the GW Softball Field on the Mount Vernon Campus.
Already GW's career doubles leader, Valos matched Chrysanthi Halkiotis' single-season mark, which was set in 2008, with a three-run double in the second inning.
Every GW starter reached base via hit or walk, led by sophomore Morgan Matetic, who went 3-for-4, as the Colonials out-hit the Billikens, 11-5.
Freshman Megan Linn was 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored, extending her program-record on-base streak to 25 straight games dating to March 11.
GW (16-28-1, 2-9 A-10) loaded the bases with no outs in the second inning as freshman Paige Kovalsky singled, sophomore Carlee Gray doubled and freshman Bradleigh Breland walked. Linn was then hit by a pitch to bring in the first run of the game, and Valos cleared the bases with her record-tying double to give the Colonials a 4-0 lead.
Saint Louis, however, scored four unearned runs in the top of the third to tie the game, the big blow a three-run homer by third baseman Elizabeth Everingham. The Billikens (22-19, 7-5 A-10) then took the lead with two runs in the fourth and added an insurance run in the sixth for the 7-4 win.
Sophomore Megan Rico (12-15) was charged with seven runs (two earned) in 5.2 innings in the loss. Brianna Lore (18-11) gave up four runs on 11 hits and three walks with six strikeouts to earn the complete game win for SLU.
The Colonials and Billikens conclude their two-game set on Saturday at 12 p.m. at the GW Softball Field on the Mount Vernon Campus.
