Raleigh, NC - Trailing 7-0 to William Peace, the Wesleyan College softball team made a strong run at the Pacers in the seventh inning but came up just short, falling to the USA South foe 8-5. The Pacers took the first game of the doubleheader as well, defeating Wesleyan 8-0.

Notables:

  • Junior Tiffani Linville picked up two of Wesleyan's five hits in Game 1. Claire Crawford, McKenzi Shelpman, and Alana Walker each added a hit.
  • In Game 2, the Wolves trailed 8-1 entering the seventh inning. Singles by Tiffani Linville and Claire Crawford and a double by Alana Walker pushed four runs across the plate for the Wolves before the Pacers defense stood tall and closed out the game.

Quotable:

Wesleyan head coach Dickey Hightower remarked, "We played much better today. We hit the ball a lot better, and it was certainly nice to finally score a few runs. We received good effort from everyone and are starting to turn a corner. We need to get a few more wins as the season winds down, and I know we are capable of making that happen."
