DOVER, DE – The Wesley College Women's Softball team split with Conference rival Penn State Harrisburg. The Wolverines won the first game of the day 6-4 and dropped the second game 9-1. The Wolverines picked up their first conference win, advancing to 13-9 overall, 1-5 in the CAC, while the Nittany Lions move to 6-10 overall, 1-3 in conference.
The Wolverines started the day out well. Lindsay Siok and Steph Caracozza began Wesley's first inning rally with a pair of singles. Nina Marcano then loaded the bases with a base on balls. A walk and an error scored three Wesley runs and a passed ball scored another to bring the score to 4-0 going into the second inning.
The bottom of the second saw Caracozza reach on another single before Marcano slammed a triple to the outfield to bring in the run. Morgan Seymour attempted to steal second after she was walked by the pitcher. Seymour was caught stealing but grabbed the RBI when Marcano crossed the plate.
Both teams were scoreless until Harrisburg rallied in the top of the seventh. The Nittany Lions brought four runs in but Siok ended the scoring with a strike out.
Siok took the win for the Wolverines while Gabrielle Wolfe took the loss for the Nittany Lions.
Game two did not go as well for Wesley. Ashly Bendorovich scored the first run of the game, taking third on a passed ball and then home on an over throw from the Nittany Lions.
Bendorovich's run would be the only tally the Wolverines would get on the board in the game. Harrisburg would score three runs in the third, fifth, and sixth innings, respectively, before the game would be called after the sixth inning.
Jackie Furch pitched her first win of the season while Lily Engel took the loss for Wesley.
The Wolverines return to the field at 1:00 PM on Sunday, April 6 when they face CAC rival, York College (PA) in Dover at DuPont Field.
