Wesley Softball wins Atlantic East Championship

DOVER, Del. - After securing the #1 seed and winning the regular season title, the Wolverines brought home the Atlantic East Championship as they took down the Cabrini Cavaliers 10-2 in run rule fashion.

On what happened to be graduation day, the team needed a day two, game one victory to send its seniors over to cross the stage and they did that in expedited fashion as they put together a five run fifth inning inflicting the mercy rule. But that's now how the game started. In the first inning Wesley offense was stymied by the cavs pitcher Avery Byrnes. Wesley allowed a run to cross the plate in the first and that was the last lead the cavs would have.

A two run bomb from Amanda Curry quickly flipped the score 2-1. In the third inning pitcher and tournament MVP Dori Loukopoulos smacked a two run homer of her own. In the fourth inning Miranda Kinney wanted to join the senior home run hit parade and smoked a solo shot herself.

With the score now 5-2 the Wolverines scored 5 runs forcing Cabrini to score a run in order for the game to continue. A pop fly to shortstop, and strike out and ground out to third would be how the game ended leading to a dog pile on the mound in celebration.

This was the first Atlantic East Championship for the Wolverines and first championship overall since the 1998 team won the PAC title.

The conference does not have an Automatic Qualifier for the NCAA tournament so the team waits for the selection show Monday at 1pm to see if they have been awarded the pool B bid or an at large selection.

This was the last athletic event at Wesley College as the Wolverines won on their home field and all walked away champions.
