Softball Wins Two Games at UMBC Fall Classic
Colonials rally to top host UMBC, 6-4, in game two
Sept. 20, 2004
BALTIMORE, MD - The George Washington University softball team won both of its games in its fall opener on Sunday, Sept. 19, at the UMBC Fall Classic at the UMBC Softball Diamond. GW topped Anne Arundel Community College, 10-2, in its first game, then rallied to defeat the host Retrievers, 6-4, in game two.
"I'm excited about our showing on Sunday," head coach JoAnne Ferguson said. "The team played very well and we certainly did not play like we had only practiced seven times as a team. We have a young program, loaded with freshmen and sophomores, but we competed like an experienced team."
Freshman pitcher Lindsay Graham (Palm Bay, FL) earned the win for the Colonials against Anne Arundel, while freshman Gabby Culp (Desoto, TX) provided the offense. Culp hit two homeruns, including a grand slam, and had six RBI in the game. Freshman Chrysantni Halklotis (Brookeville, MD) also added a homerun.
Culp was in the circle for GW in game two against UMBC, and after allowing two runs early, settled down to earn the complete-game victory.
"Our pitching was strong, our defense was solid and our offense was outstanding," Ferguson continued. "I have high hopes for the remainder of our fall season and I look forward to an exciting spring campaign."
The tournament was originally scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 18, but was postponed until Sunday due to inclement weather.
The Colonials continue their fall campaign on Wednesday, Sept. 22, with a doubleheader at Howard set to begin at 2 p.m. at Banneker Stadium.
