Pitcher Julia Geaumont ’16 set a new Bowdoin softball single-season record for wins on Wednesday when she led the Polar Bears to a 2-1 win in the first game of a doubleheader against St. Joseph’s College. The Polar Bears won the second game 8-0, and took four of the six games it played last weekend. The team’s record now stands at 23-11 overall and 8-4 in the NESCAC, good enough for second in the conference’s eastern division.

The softball team started out its weekend with a Friday night home win against Colby (10-15 overall, 4-5 NESCAC). Marisa O’Toole ’17 gave Bowdoin an early lead with a solo home run in the first inning, but Colby tied up the score by the third. In the fifth inning captain Adriane Krul ’15 put ahead 2-1 with another solo home run. Colby had no answer in the closing innings and Krul’s home run was the decisive factor in a Polar Bear victory on the team’s Senior Night.

On Saturday, the Polar Bears played two more games against Colby, this time on Colby’s home field in Waterville. The first of the two games was a 1-0 loss for Bowdoin, with Colby first-year Skylar Labbe scoring the only run of the game.

In the second game of the day, Bowdoin won 3-0. Senior captain Cielle Collins scored in the first inning to give the Polar Bears an early lead. Krul trotted home on a Collins’ double in the fourth inning, and first year Claire McCarthy scored from first on a Lauren O’Shea ’18 double one inning later.

On Sunday, the team played a game against an undefeated Tufts team (30-0 overall, 9-0 NESCAC) that had been rescheduled from April 10, and a double-header against the University of Maine-Farmington.

Bowdoin lost 5-4 to Tufts in its first game of the day. Tufts opened the scoring with two runs in the top of the third inning. Bowdoin responded in the bottom half with four runs, but the Jumbos tied the game in the fifth with help from a throwing error. In the sixth inning, Tufts scored the go-ahead run, the final run of the game.

On Sunday in the first of the team’s two wins against the University of Maine-Farmington, Krul’s second inning, three-run homer gave the Polar Bears a lead they would not relinquish. In the third inning they scored two more runs, followed by a seven-run explosion in the fourth to secure the 13-1 victory.

In the final game of the weekend, Bowdoin cruised to a 10-0 win against a Farmington team that committed five errors. In the first inning Bowdoin scored four runs, two coming on an O’Shea triple. The Polar Bears scored three times in both the third and fourth innings, ensuring their 10-0 victory to end the weekend.

In the first game against St. Joseph’s on Wednesday, Geaumont pitched a complete game with St. Joseph’s only run coming after a Bowdoin error extended the sixth inning. In the second game Bowdoin’s offense came alive early, scoring three, one, two and two runs in the first four innings, respectively, en route to an 8-0 win.

The Polar Bears have another doubleheader today at Brandeis University, with games at 3:30 and 5:30 p.m.
