Softball goes 1-3 on the week
The Colby softball team started off this past week with an 8-0 win against Thomas College on Thursday, April 19, which brought the Mules’ record to 8-16 overall.
Meaghan Lewia ’15 kicked off the first inning with a triple, which was followed up by a double from Lauren Becker ’13, and a single from co-captain Katie Graichen ’12. Graichen scored off of an RBI single from Lindsay Peterson ’13 to put the Mules ahead three runs to zero.
In the second inning, Kelsey Yardumian ’14 scored off singles from Kelly Roth ’12 and Lewia, and Graichen hit both of them home with a two-run single. Erica Pulford ’15 ran home on a single from Erin Caputo ’15, and Graichen scored the final run of the day.
The next day’s game against Bowdoin College didn’t go as well for the Mules. Down 0-3 by the end of the first inning, the Mules had two hits from Becker but couldn’t score a run. Colby then held the Polar Bears scoreless until the sixth inning, when the Polar Bears scored two runs to take the game 5-0.
On Saturday, April 21, Colby traveled to Bowdoin and for a doubleheader. It was another tough day as the Mules dropped both games, 1-7 and 0-8. Lewia carried the offense for the day, scoring the only run for the Mules by knocking in a double in the first game. She also hit a triple in the second inning.
The Colby softball team is currently 7-19 overall and 0-9 in the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC). On Wednesday, April 25, the Mules will travel to the University of Southern Maine for a doubleheader, and they play Trinity College three times this weekend in Hartford, Conn.
