MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – Despite two home runs by senior catcher Ashlyn Booth, Wesley College's softball team dropped a pair of games to Penn State-Altoona at the Fastpitch Dreams Spring Classic in Myrtle Beach.  The Wolverines (2-3) dropped the opener, 14-10 before falling 14-1 in game two.

Booth homered once in both games and went 5-6 on the day as the Wolverines fought well against the Lions in the opener.  Her two home runs equal her total from last season.

Also having good days with the bat for the Navy & White were Samantha Barker who went 4-6 with a double and two RBIs while Nicole Piscopo went 3-4 with two RBIs.

Wesley fell behind 3-0 in the opener after the first inning but Booth led off the top of the second with a solo blast, followed by a two-run double by Barker. The Wolverines would tack on another in the inning to take a 4-3 lead.

The Lions would then score six in their half of the second but once again Wesley responded and after a bases-clearing double by Brynae Goodley in the third, a Piscopo RBI in the fourth and another run in the fifth it was all tied up at nine.

PSU (4-0) then scored five runs in the next two innings and the Wolverines could only muster one run in the seventh.

Wesley takes on Juniata tomorrow at 9:30 am and Penn State-Beaver at 11:30.
