The Women’s Softball team played five games in Wilmington, North Carolina over a three-day span for the Seahawk Softball Spring Classic.  The end of the weekend concluded with mixed results for the Red Foxes.  Marist finished 2-3 for this tournament and was outscored 28-20.  Marist played a doubleheader against Delaware and Western Carolina on Friday, UNCW and North Carolina AT&T on Saturday, and one game against UNCW on Sunday.  Marist ended up losing the first three games but finished strong to win the last two. 

 

In the first game, Delaware was able to score seven runs off of Marist pitching.  Melanie White was lit up for six earned runs and she put 11 runners on base in just four innings of work.  Rebecca Freeman led a dormant Marist offense with three of the six Marist hits, and two runs batted in.  Final Score: Delaware 7, Marist 3.  The second game, Marist again had a struggling offense.  Just four hits for the team and batters struck out 12 times.     While Western Carolina’s offense exploded with ten hits and six runs, their pitching was the highlight of the game.  Mallory Broome won the game in relief, giving up one earned run over three innings, striking out five.  Final Score: Western Carolina 6, Marist 1. 

 

During the third game, Marist was able to score five runs and was led by Maureen Duddy, who had three hits and an RBI.  Unfortunately, it was not enough to UNCW’s nine run attack, bolstered by a four run sixth inning.  Janine Lalli was tagged with the loss, giving up nine earned runs and ten hits during a complete game.  Final Score: UNCW 9, Marist 5.  In the fourth game, Marist pitching dominated North Carolina AT&T’s offense.  Melanie White pitched a complete game, allowing just one earned run and allowed just four hits.  Maureen Duddy led the team offensively, scoring three runs and adding in two hits and an RBI.  Final Score: Marist 5, North Carolina AT&T 2. 

 

In the fifth game, Rebecca Freeman led the offense with two hits and three runs batted in.  Jayne Oberdorf pitched a complete game and even with four earned runs, she was able to come away with a win.  She also only allowed six UNCW base runners during the game, while striking out five.  Final Score: Marist 6, UNCW 4.

 

While the tournament might not have gone exactly as they wanted, Melanie White was named the MAAC Pitcher of the week.  This came after she complied a 3.50 ERA in her 14 innings of work.  Marist has a break the rest of this week and do not play again until Friday, March 13th against Memphis.  This tournament lasts nine games, five in Charleston, South Carolina, two in Durham, North Carolina and two in Hampton, Virginia. 

 

These players lead in different categories for the team so far.  Rebecca Freeman leads with a .385 AVG, seven RBIs, and a .500 SLG.  Maureen Duddy leads with 11 hits, six walks, and a .486 OBP.  Jayne Oberdorf leads with a 2-1 record, 3.35 ERA,  and an opponents batting average of .221.  Melanie White leads with four games started, 26 innings pitched, and 19 strikeouts.
