Softball Falls to Rhode Island, 7-0 and 8-1
Meyers Adds Two Hits To Her Team Leading Total
May 3, 2003
KINGSTON, RI - The George Washington Colonials Softball team dropped both games of a doubleheader to Rhode Island on Friday, May 2. The losses dropped the Colonials overall record to 3-34 and 0-14 in the conference, while Rhode Island improved to 21-22 overall and 8-8 in the Atlantic 10.
The Colonials fell behind early in game one after Rhode Island put up three runs in the bottom of the first. They were unable to tally any base runners until the top of the fourth when freshman Elana Meyers (Douglasville, GA/Lithia Springs) singled, but the Rams kept GW from breaking through on the scoreboard.
Rhode Island added a single run in the bottom of the second, two more in the bottom of the fourth and another run in the bottom of the sixth on their way to the 7-0 victory. Rhode Island pitcher Jenna Thurston picked up her fourteenth win of the season.
The Colonials threatened in the top of the first of game two after Meyers singled and advanced to third after a fielder's choice and a sacrifice bunt by sophomore Jaclyn Sanderson (Green Brook, NJ/Watchung Hills), but they were unable to do push across a run. Rhode Island took advantage by tallying two runs in the bottom of the first and broke the game open with a four-run second inning.
GW scored their only run on the day after sophomore Ruthie Aerts (Boonton Twp., NJ/Mountain Lakes) singled and later scored on an error in the top of the third. But, the Colonials could do no more as Rhode Island added two more runs in the bottom of the fifth on their way to the 8-1 victory.
The Colonials will wrap up their inaugural season when they play a doubleheader with #16 Massachusetts on Sunday, May 4 in Amherst, MA.
