Softball Takes a Pair From Coppin St.
Culp Wins Both Games for GW
Oct. 13, 2003
WASHINGTON, DC - The George Washington University softball team won both games of a doubleheader versus Coppin St., 6-1 and 4-3, on Saturday, October 11 to end their fall season. Freshman Gabby Culp (Desoto, TX/Bishop Dunne) started the first game and relieved in the second game to pick up both wins. She did the job at the plate as well, blasting her second home run of the fall in the second inning of game one.
In the first game, GW exploded for a five run second inning on Culp's home run, a three base error on Coppin St.'s rightfielder, a single by junior Jennifer Lawrence (Nassau, NY/Columbia), a walk, a triple by sophomore Elana Meyers (Douglasville, GA/Lithia Springs) and an RBI single by freshman Kristin Dimeo (West Orange, NJ/Montclair Kimberley). This would be plenty for Culp who only gave up two hits and struck out 12 on her way to the 6-1 victory.
Things were a little tougher for GW in game two, but they were able to squeak out the victory, 4-3, on an RBI single by freshman Janelle Parker (Mt. Vernon, NY/Mt. Vernon) in the bottom of the 11th. Freshman Melanie Lewis (Charlotte, NC/Independence) started on the mound in game two, but Coppin St. took advantage of an error in the first to plate two runs and followed that up with a run in the second before Lewis gave way to Culp. Lewis did her job at the plate, singling in the second to start a three-run rally that included a two-run double by freshman Ashley Horner (Port Matilda, PA/State College Area) and an RBI single by Meyers. Culp silenced the Coppin St. bats for the rest of the game, giving up only one hit, a bunt single, while striking out 12 more. GW was unable to get anything going after the second inning until the eleventh when freshman Colleen Kegler (Yardley, PA/Pennsbury) singled to right field, stole second and scored on Parker's single to center giving GW the 4-3 victory.
The Colonials finished their fall season 7-2 and will look forward to starting their spring season when they host the GW Invitational on Saturday and Sunday, February 28 and 29.
