Softball Gets Roughed Up By #16 Massachusetts
Colonials Finish Season With Three Victories
May 4, 2003
AMHERST, MA - The George Washington Colonials Softball team ran into a buzz saw in the form of Atlantic 10 Champions, Massachusetts, on Sunday, May 4 and dropped both games of a doubleheader, 18-0 and 13-0. The losses ended GW's inaugural season with a 3-36 overall record and kept them winless in the A-10.
The Colonials entered the doubleheader trying to pull off a monumental upset, but their hopes were dashed after Massachusetts posted an 11 run first inning. The Colonials couldn't recover and were kept hitless by pitcher Kaila Holtz. Massachusetts added three runs in the second, two in the third and two in the fourth on their way to the 18-0 victory.
GW fell behind early in game two as well after Massachusetts put up three runs in the bottom of the first. This time it was pitcher Jenna Busa's turn to baffle the Colonials. She finished the game giving up only one hit, a single to sophomore Monica Foote (Youngstown, NY/Lewiston-Porter). Massachusetts broke the game open in the bottom of the third with six runs and tacked on four more in the bottom of the fourth on their way to the 13-0 victory, while securing the Atlantic 10 Championship.
The Colonials will bid farewell to their three seniors Edna Coonan (Hazlet, NJ/Raritan), Alison Scimeca (Latham, NY/Shaker) and Sammi Sordi (Boothwyn, PA/Chichester), who all played a vital role in transforming the GW softball team from a club team to a varsity program.
