Macon, GA - The Wesleyan College softball team opened USA South conference action on Tuesday afternoon, dropping both games of a doubleheader to preseason favorite Piedmont, 3-0 and 13-1.

Notables:

  • Junior pitcher Valerie Clower had a strong showing in Game 1, giving up only one earned run while striking out two batters and walking none.
  • Tiffani Linville and Victoria Clower each recorded two hits on the day, and Wesleyan saw seven different batters earn a hit in Game 2. 

Quotable:

Wesleyan head softball coach Dickey Hightower remarked, "I thought we played a pretty good ball game to start the day. Valerie [Clower] had a solid performance from the mound, and had it not been for an error, we would have held Piedmont to just one run. The second game got away from us in the fourth inning, but we did start hitting the ball a little better, so that's progress. We can take away several positives from our performance today, and we will look to build on them as we get into conference play. "
