Women’s softball splits double header with Va. Wesleyan



Put the freshmen in, Coach.

Game-hoppers on east-campus heard the bleacher hype grow stronger on Wayne St. after the first over-the-fence run was hit by a young, new face in the second game of the double header. Sea Gull’s softball took one win and one loss to Va. Wesleyan, 5-0, 7-1.See  below to find out whose run turned the second game.

Below – Number 11 senior in-fielder Molly Simpson follows through during game one on Saturday. Simpson combined with Third Baseman Katie Sebbane for 10 home-runs last season and the seniors hope to top that number for their final year.


Below – Outfielder and senior Rachel Spadin tags the Virginia Wesleyan Marlin as she tries to take second. Defense was strong during the first game of the double header on Saturday but could not help the 5-0 loss.

    Thank you for the nice article including Tate and her run. The pictures were great! I have shared the site with whoever will listen. Tate is a great player and is my niece. You will see many more of these from her. (In the World Series last summer, she had a grand slam!)
