Softball streak continues
The women's softball team continued its winning streak with four additional
wins in a row, making the team 16-7-1. Last Friday, the Bears humiliated
Husson with a score 5-0 in the first game and 3-0 in the second of the
doubleheader. Husson's record fell to 2-8, making the team's return trip
home to Bangor a long one.
The first of the two games was tied at 0-0 until the fifth inning when
Bowdoin scored all five of its runs. The offensive effort was led by senior
captain Emily Rizza who went 2-3, with a double and a run scored. Jesse
Poulin grunted her way to yet another win, allowing only six hits and
chalking the shutout. Poulin's record is now a solid 7-3.
In the second game, NESCAC Player of the Week Erin Hanley proved she too could shutout the Braves, as she spread seven hits over seven innings.
Kristi Royer'03, well-known to Bowdoin as a basketball standout, began
creating a name for herself on the diamond going a perfect 4-4 with two
runs scored and two stolen bases. Laura Perovich '05 was a defensive mainstay
for the Bears catching both games and taking credit for calling each shutout.
An anonymous team member states, "The season has been going well,
but we still need to buckle down for the remainder of the season and stay
focused down the stretch to the NESCAC tournament."
This past Wednesday the Bears tried to face Colby in a double-header, but thunderstorms delayed the match-up. The results for the Thursday make-up were not available for print. This weekend Bowdoin will go up against four tough teams in the Colby tournament. On Saturday they face St. Joeseph's of Maine and Brandeis College; Sunday will feature re-matches against Colby and St. Joe's.
