MYRTLE BEACH, SC. – The Wolverines winning streak came to an unfortunate end on Wednesday morning as the Wesley women's softball team fell to the Greensboro College Pride, 5-1, in the first game of the day. The Wolverines would not let the loss upend their motivation as they would finish the day with a five inning triumph over the Hawks of Hilbert College.
The Wolverines fell behind in the top of the second inning when Madison Crisco singled to left field, scoring Hayley Rumley. Both teams were scoreless and hitless through the third inning. It was the bottom of the fourth when Wesley managed to get on the board. Sarah Saunders singled to center before stealing second to put her in scoring position. Tiarra Maddox then got her first hit of the day when she dropped one into center, scoring Saunders. The score remained tied at 1-1 until a Greensboro rally brought four runners across the plate to take the game out of reach of the Wolverines. Lindsay Siok took the loss from the mound for the Wolverines.
The loss against the Pride would do nothing to the pride of the Wolverines, whom were determined to get back on the winning track in game two of the day. Steph Caracozza opened the game with an infield single. A Saunders single saw Caracozza cross the plate. Another Nina Marcano triple, her third of the season, scored Saunders and then Marcano scored on a base hit from Kayla Fromal. Hilbert also fared well in the opening inning with two runs but they were the only runs the Hawks would get from Lily Engel. Caracozza had another perfect game, going 4-4 at the plate and scoring three runs in Engel's 11-2 win.
The Wolverines face off against the Falcons of Albertus Magnus in a 3:30 PM start on Thursday, March 12.
