Softball goes winless in West Virginia

The softball team got routed in each of their four games this past weekend in West Virginia, dropping to 2-5 for the season. Losing 9-1, 12-3, 15-0 and 13-0, respectively, the Orange and the Blue struggled to produce runs over the four games, but they still maintain their goal of winning the Patriot League title.

The Bison lack of runs was largely attributed to the lack of hits during the games. One bright spot for the Orange and Blue was Nikki Silva ’15, who recorded her first career RBI during the team’s first game of the trip.

“When the games are so one-sided like this weekend, we try and break our goals down into smaller ones,” Courtney Conover ’14 said. “We try to win each at bat rather than each inning or even take it pitch by pitch. We also try to take something away from the other team and limit their threats.”

Going into a tough stretch of games, where the team will be playing 10 games over a stretch of five days, both Conover and Meredith Dickson ’12 echoed that the team will be focusing on hitting.

“We really want to produce offensively and attack the ball,” Dickson said.

“For the spring break games, we are just trying to work together to make the team better as a whole and really focus on our hitting,” Conover said.

Up next for the Bison is Kissimmee, Fla. The team then will participate in the Delaware State Tournament on the weekend of March 24-25.
