The Washington College softball team took on Wesley College on Sunday, March 24 away in Dover.

This game was a resumed game from their double header from Wednesday, Feb. 27, where they won the first game 19-0 in five innings. Pitchers, senior Maddie Bennett and freshman Cassidy Predale, both helped accomplish the no-hitter in February.

“We have been working really hard during the pre-season and we are looking to learn from the games we’ve already played,” Bennett said.  “I feel excited to compete with this group of players. Our goal is to win the conference tournament. It starts with winning every at bat, pitch and inning.”

On Sunday March 24, junior Leah Stokes got the first hit of the game in the top of the fourth. In the top of the sixth inning, the Shorewomen put three runs on the board.

Freshman Rachel DiMarcello hit a home-run that got two players home, followed by a single by sophomore Brittany Walker to get senior Jenna Gordon home.

In the seventh inning, the Shorewomen earned two more runs, bringing them to victory over Wesley, 5-3.

After this win, junior Rachel Butler is confident as they approach Centennial Conference play.

“I feel good about our season moving forward and think that we have learned a lot about our team in Florida, and we know what we need to do to finish the season strong,” Butler said. “Our goals are to win a Conference championship and I think our team is optimistic about that. I am looking forward to playoffs.”

The Shorewomen are currently 5-12 overall and have not yet played any Conference games.

The softball team takes on Stockton University for a double header at 2:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 28.

In the 2018 season, the Shorewomen went 1-1 in the double header against Stockton, splitting the matches.
