      SUBJECT: College of Charleston Uses Late Rally To Defeat University of Delaware Softball, 3-2, in Rubber Game of Weekend Series
       
      DATE: March 23, 2014

      NEWARK, Del. -- College of Charleston shortstop Lizzy Vaughn delivered a two-run single with two outs in the top of the seventh inning as the Cougars came back to post a 3-2 victory over the University of Delaware softball team Sunday afternoon at the UD Softball Stadium in the rubber match of the three-game CAA weekend series.
       
      The Cougars, who improved to 20-11 overall and 2-1 in league play, trailed by a run heading into the final frame. But after Blue Hen pitcher Kelly Lupton retired the first batter of the inning, Kelsey Hodgson reached on an error by UD shortstop Sarah Bencivenga before Allison Pedigo looped a single to right. Delaware was one out from victory following a groundout by Katie Padilla but Vaughn then ripped a single to right, driving home both runners to put CofC on top.
       
      Delaware, which dropped to 8-15 overall and 1-2 in the CAA, attempted to rally in the bottom of the seventh when pinch hitter Lisa Stacevicz lined a one-out single to left. But Samantha Martin then took over in the circle for the Cougars, and she got Jessica Grisler to fly out to center before striking out Danielle Wissinger to end the game.
       
      Martin earned her first save of the season, while CofC starter Hope Klicker improved to 10-9 after she allowed two earned runs on six hits in 6.1 innings of work. Lupton was the hard luck loser for the Blue Hens, as she dropped to 3-4 despite allowing just one unearned run on seven hits.
       
      Delaware took the early lead in the bottom of the first inning when Grisler led off with a single to center and scored one out later on a triple into the gap in rightcenter by Giovanna Kolofer.
       
      The Cougars quickly drew even in the top of the second as Becca Mueller led off with a triple to left and immediately scored when Chandler Frisbie followed with an RBI single to left.
       
      The Blue Hens went right back ahead during the bottom half when Grisler lofted a sacrifice fly to left to drive home pinch runner Morgan Schroll, and Delaware maintained its one-run lead until the Cougars’ comeback in the seventh.
       
      Szymanski went 2 for 3 at the plate for Delaware, while Grisler and Kolofer each added a hit and an RBI.
       
      Delaware remains home on Wednesday to host Coppin State in a 3 p.m. non-league doubleheader at the UD Softball Stadium.

      NEWARK, Del. -- College of Charleston shortstop Lizzy
      Vaughn delivered a two-run single with two outs in the top of the seventh inning
      as the Cougars came back to post a 3-2 victory over the University of Delaware
      softball team Sunday afternoon at the UD Softball Stadium in the rubber match of
      the three-game CAA weekend series.

       

      The
      Cougars, who improved to 20-11 overall and 2-1 in league play, trailed by a run
      heading into the final frame. But after Blue Hen pitcher Kelly Lupton retired
      the first batter of the inning, Kelsey Hodgson reached on an error by UD

      Delaware was one out from victory following a groundout by Katie Padilla but
      Vaughn then ripped a single to right, driving home both runners to put CofC on
      top.

       

      Delaware, which dropped to 8-15 overall and 1-2 in the

      starter Hope Klicker improved to 10-9 after she allowed two earned runs on six
      hits in 6.1 innings of work. Lupton was the hard luck loser for the Blue Hens,
      as she dropped to 3-4 despite allowing just one unearned run on seven
      hits.

       

      Delaware took the early lead in the bottom of the
      first inning when Grisler led off with a single to center and scored one out
      later on a triple into the gap in rightcenter by Giovanna Kolofer.

      SUBJECT: Hit Parade In Game Two Gives Wilmington Softball a Split at
      Philadelphia

       

      DATE: March 27, 2014
      Djl

       

      PHILADELPHIA, Pa. - - A 21-hit parade in game two allowed the
      Wilmington University softball team to split a Central Atlantic Collegiate
      Conference doubleheader at Philadelphia, 1-2 and 14-1, on Thursday afternoon at
      the Philadelphia Softball Field.

       

      The team that scored first lost each contest, as the Wildcats
      (9-13, 3-1 CACC) scored first in game one with a single run in the top of the
      fourth inning. Philadelphia (14-2, 5-1 CACC) came back with a pair of runs in
      the bottom half before going on to win the opener.

       

      The Rams scored a lone run in the bottom of the third inning in
      the nightcap before the Wildcats tallied all 14 runs in the fourth, fifth, and
      sixth innings before the mercy rule came into play and the game was called after
      the end of the sixth.

       

      Senior Stephanie Sarris tossed a complete game with seven
      strikeouts in the opener, but only received five hits on the offensive side, and
      a lone run coming in the top of the fourth.

       

      Kelsey Doherty led off the inning with a single before Ashley
      Bennett brought pinch runner Becca Stanley around to score from second with an
      RBI single to right center.
      The Rams quickly retaliated with a pair of runs n
      the home half of the fourth as a two-out, two-run single gave the home team the
      lead for good.

       

      The nightcap was the complete opposite for the Wildcats, as they
      smashed 21 hits, including five doubles and a home run. All the Wilmington
      scoring happened after the Rams got on the board first in the bottom of the
      third.

       

      Back-to-back doubles from Miranda Pedersen and Michelle Panasiti
      to lead off the top of the fourth tied the game for the Wildcats. Bennett
      followed with a two-run shot to left center, giving the visitors a 4-1 lead with
      no outs in the inning. An unearned run following a line out by Doherty gave the
      Wildcats their fifth and final run of the inning.
      After starter Colby Wyatt
      sat the Rams down in order in the bottom of the fourth, the Wildcats were at it
      again, tacking on two more runs in the top of the fifth.

       

      Three straight singles gave the Wildcats their first run, as
      Bennett added to her RBI total with a run scoring single. A bases loaded single
      by Meghan Logullo brought in Katrina Swank with two outs, giving the Wildcats a
      7-1 lead after their half of the fifth inning.
      Another fast inning for Wyatt
      brought the Wildcat bats back up to the plate in the sixth, as they struck early
      and often in the inning, putting seven more runs on the board.

       

      Pedersen led off the inning with another double before eventually
      scoring on another Bennett single. Brooke Lachetter knocked in Jen Fischbach on
      an RBI groundout before Cambria Ziemba doubled in a run to left center. Logullo
      added to the runs with another RBI single before Stanley doubled to left center
      to plate two more. Now batting around, Pedersen made it 2-for-2 in the inning,
      hitting an RBI single to right center for the final run for the Wildcats.

       

      Wyatt went five innings while striking out four batters, allowing
      two hits and an unearned run. Lachette came on in the sixth inning and tossed a
      perfect inning with a strikeout to close out the contest.

       

      Logullo and Fischbach led the Wildcat attack by each going
      4-for-4 in game two while Pedersen and Bennett collected three hits each.
      Bennett led all batters with four RBI. Doherty collected three of the teams’
      five hits in the opening game.

       

      The Wildcats’ CACC doubleheader on Saturday scheduled against
      Post has been postponed due to the incoming weather system. The Post
      doubleheader will now be played on April 22, which moves the home games against
      Mansfield to April 23.

       

      The Wildcats are scheduled to makeup a doubleheader at Chestnut
      Hill on Sunday, starting at 10:30 a.m.

      SUBJECT: University of Delaware
      Softball Holds Off Penn For 5-3 Non-Conference Win Over Quakers

       

       

       

      DATE: March 27, 2014

      PHILADELPHIA -- The
      University of Delaware softball team jumped out to a four-run lead while
      sophomore Kelly Lupton pitched the final two scoreless innings as the Blue Hens
      posted a 5-3 non-league victory over Penn Thursday night at Penn Park.

       

       

       

      Delaware (9-15) opened the scoring
      during the top of the first inning, as Danielle Wissinger ripped a one-out
      double to centerfield and came around to score when Giovanna Kolofer reached on
      a Quakers error.

       

       

       

      Jessica Grisler singled with one
      out in the third, and after Wissinger was hit by a pitch and both runners
      advanced on a passed ball, Kolofer delivered a two-run single to right. Kolofer
      then moved to second on a single by Sarah Bencivenga, and she scored following a
      double steal and an errant throw by Penn catcher Korinne Raby.

       

       

       

      The Quakers (4-11) struck back
      during the bottom of the frame when Kanani Datan and Kayla Dahlerbruch each
      singled before Alexis Sargent blasted a three-run homer to rightcenter to cut
      the Blue Hens’ advantage to 4-3.

       

       

       

      Delaware tacked on an insurance run
      in the fifth when Grisler drilled a leadoff homer to center, her team-leading
      third longball of the season.

       

       

       

      The Quakers put the potential tying
      runs on second and third with two outs in the bottom of the fifth, but UD
      starter Carolyn Szymanski retired Lauren Li on a lineout to third to escape the
      jam. Lupton then retired all six batters she faced in the final two frames,
      including the first four by strikeout, to earn her first save of the year.

       

       

       

      Szymanski improved to 5-8 after she
      allowed three runs on five hits while striking out six batters. Penn starter
      Courtney Cuzick dropped to 0-3 after giving up four runs, two earned, on five
      hits in four innings of work.

       

       

       

      Grisler finished 3 for 4 with two
      runs scored for the Blue Hens, while Kolofer also went 3 for 4 with three runs
      batted in.

       

       

       

      Delaware returns to Colonial
      Athletic Association action this weekend with a three-game series at UNCW.

      SUBJECT: Early Runs and Strong Pitching Leads Wilmington Softball, 3-1 and 5-0, to CACC Sweep Over Chestnut Hill
      DATE: April 17, 2014
      djl
      PHILADELPHIA, Pa. - - Early runs and a pair of strong pitching efforts allowed the Wilmington University softball team to sweep a doubleheader away from Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference foe Chestnut Hill, 3-1 and 5-0, on Thursday afternoon at the CHC Softball Field.
      The sweep extends the Wildcats’ (21-17, 13-5 CACC) winning streak to five straight as Jen Fischbach and Stephanie Sarris each tossed complete games on Thursday. Chestnut Hill (6-22, 6-14 CACC) matched the Wildcats in hits in the opener but was shutdown by Sarris in the nightcap, only getting three hits in the shutout.
      Junior Chelsea Botsch was the catalyst for the Wildcats in both contests, as she batted 3-for-4 and 2-for-3 in the doubleheader from atop the batting order.
      In the opener, the Wildcats put the first five batters on base, as Botsch and Cambria Ziemba started the inning with infield singles. Kelsey Doherty was hit by a pitch to load the bases before Ashley Bennett collected the first RBI of the inning after getting hit by a pitch to force in a run. Ziemba then came on to score on a wild pitch before Meghan Logullo collected another RBI with a single up the middle, giving the Wildcats a quick 3-0 lead.
      That was all the Wildcats’ starter FIschbach would need, as she went the distance with seven strikeouts to improve to 3-3 on the season. She didn’t allow a walk while only giving up a run on six hits in the complete game.
      Botsch went 3-for-4 while Ziemba went 2-for-4 from atop the lineup, collecting five of the Wildcats’ seven hits in the game. Logullo and Michelle Panasiti had a hit each to round out the hits for the Wildcats in the opener.
      The Wildcats started fast again in the nightcap, scoring a run in the top of the first before adding two more in the top of the third.
      Botsch again led of the game with a hit, this time a double to left field. Ziemba traded places with Botsch, doubling to left center to put the Wildcats on the board without recording an out.
      Three straight hits to start the third produced an RBI from Logullo before Miranda Pedersen executed a squeeze bunt to bring in the team’s second run of the inning and the 3-0 lead.
      That was more than enough for Sarris, as she shut down the Griffins in the nightcap. In her second shutout of the season, Sarris struck out eight batters while only allowing three hits in the effort. She improved to 10-6 on the season.
      Pedersen added a run for the Wildcats in the top of the fifth with her fourth home run of the season. Rice Fazio capped the Wilmington scoring with an RBI single in the top of the seventh, scoring Colby Wyatt who started the inning with a single up the middle.
      Seven different Wildcats collected at least one hit in the nightcap, as the Wildcats produced 12 hits total. Panasiti led the team with a 3-for-4 effort while Botsch, Ziemba, and Wyatt added two hits each.
      The Wildcats are off for the remainder of the weekend and return to action on Tuesday in a makeup doubleheader with CACC foe Post. The doubleheader at Asbury Field is set to begin at 2 p.m.

       In a wacky doubleheader between two of the top teams in the CACC, the Eagles (20-18, 16-6 CACC) put 13 runs on the board in two innings of game one, before the Wildcats (22-18, 14-6 CACC) scored all 11 runs in two innings in game two to earn the split.
      After going down in order in the top of the first inning, Post put five runs on the board in the top of the second, using four walks and three hits to take a 5-0 lead.

      Post’s Kaitlin Derby picked up the win while pitching all five innings in the first game, walking one while allowing two runs on seven hits.
      Having only thrown 78 pitches in the first game, Derby started in the circle for the Eagles in the second game as well. But the Wildcats were ready for the hurler, as they sent 13 batters to the plate in the bottom of the first, scoring eight runs on nine hits.
      Botsch, Ziemba, and Colby Wyatt started the inning off with three straight singled, as Wyatt’s scored Botsch with the game’s first run. Michelle Panasiti loaded the bases with a bunt base hit, allowing Kelsey Doherty to knock in another run with a single into right field. Jen Fischbach knocked in a pair on an RBI single to left. Again with the bases loaded, Ziemba doubled down the line in left field, putting two more on the board for the Wildcats. A fielding error on a sharp grounder by Wyatt brought home the final run of the first inning for the Wildcats, giving the home team a quick 8-0 lead.
      Game two starter Stephanie Sarris didn’t allow a hit until the third inning and didn’t allow a run until the top of the fifth. She improved to 11-6 on the year, striking out nine batters with only allowing four hits.
      Kelsey Doherty doubled in two more runs in the bottom of the fourth, followed by an RBI single by Logullo to put the Wildcats ahead 11-0 and in line for the eight-run rule after four and a half innings of play.
      Botsch went 4-for-7 from atop the Wildcat lineup on Thursday, while Ziemba went 3-for-4 form the number two spot. The two batters tallied four runs on the afternoon, sparking the lineup once again.
      Doherty tallied three RBI in game two while Ziemba, Wyatt, and Fischbach each finished with two RBI in the win.

      Shannon Brantley have up one unearned run in the second inning, had 11 strikeouts and ended the game in the bottom of the fifth inning with a solo home run to pace the Lady Lions of Red Lion Christian to a 11-1 win over Smyrna.
       
      Brooke Coleman hit a 3-run homerun in the third to put Pennsville on top 3-0. Zoe Bunch added to the score board with a home run over centerfield fence making the score 4-0.

      DATE: May 1, 2014
      djl

      The CACC Tournament features the top eight teams throughout the regular season in a double elimination type tournament, with the winner being crowned on Sunday, May 4. The CACC Tournament winner earns an automatic bid into the NCAA Division II East Region Tournament.
      All games scheduled for field 1 will be video streamed via College TV Ticket.  Links for the broadcast can be found on the CACC Softball Tournament Home Page at http://www.caccathletics.org/sports/sball/2013-14/championship.
      Scouting
      the No. 5 Wilmington University Wildcats
      The Wildcats secured the No. 5 seed for the tournament with a doubleheader sweep over Bloomfield on Saturday, April 26 on Senior Day at Asbury Field. After a five game winning streak, the Wildcats ran into a slump to close out the regular season, losing seven of their last 10 games overall.
      Seniors Stephanie Sarris and Meghan Logullo, as well as sophomore Ashley Bennett were named Second Team All-CACC earlier this week after leading the Wildcats to a 16-10 CACC record.
      Sarris carried the pitching staff with a 2.28 earned run average, finishing fifth in the CACC. Her 106 strikeouts rank second in the CACC as she has struck out a season high nine batters in three separate games. Sarris’ 12-8 record in the circle is the third most amount of wins in the conference.
      Bennett belted a team high six home runs while hitting .301 for the season. Her 24 RBIs are tied with Michelle Panasiti’s 24 for most on the team.
      Logullo anchored the outfield by playing all 48 games in center field, batting .283 on the year. She has four doubles, a triple and 22 RBI while scoring 17 more on the year.
      Kelsey Doherty leads the team with a .345 batting average, five triples, 32 runs scored, 18 stolen bases, and 50 hits while Colby Wyatt has come on strong down the stretch to finish with a .344 batting average. Panaisiti leads the team with 11 doubles while Jen Fischbach is the only other Wildcat in double figures with 10.
      Scouting the No. 4 Holy Family University Tigers
      The Tigers eared the No. 4 seed with a 26-14 overall record and 17-9 record in the CACC. They come into the tournament splitting each of their last four doubleheaders, and 4-6 in their last 10 games overall. In each of the splits, the Tigers won the first game before dropping game two.
      Holy Family placed five student-athletes on the All-CACC teams, led by redshirt senior Danielle McDevitt’s First Team All-CACC accolades. AnnMarie Dalton was voted Second Team All-CACC while Kelsi Bunda, Brianna Scotto, and Bailey Walters garnered Honorable Mention recognition.
      McDevitt lead the Tigers with a .440 batting average, ranking fifth in the CACC. She has four doubles and two triples as a part of her 51 hits on the year to go along with 28 runs scored and 16 RBI.
      Erin Corrado’s eight home runs ranks third in the CACC while her 34 RBI is good enough for ninth in the CACC. She is batting .283 with five doubles and 21 runs scored.
      Bailey Walters leads the staff with a 1.79 earned run average while going 11-3 in the circle. She has three complete game shutouts on the year in 93.2 innings of work to go along with 67 strikeouts and 30 walks. Rachael Alligood also threw against the Wildcats in the regular season, finishing the year with a 7-3 record and a 3.21 earned run average. Amanda Paredes made 12 starts and has a 6-3 record, striking out 58 batters while only walking 13 in 83 innings of work.
      All-Time Series
      Friday will be the 24th meeting between the two programs since the Wildcats joined the NCAA ranks for the 2005 season. With the sweep earlier this season, the Tigers hold a 14-9 advantage in the all-time series.
      The Tigers have taken four straight in the regular season but the Wildcats defeated the Tigers last year in the CACC Tournament. In 2012, the Wildcats swept the Tigers in the regular season but Holy Family took the important game in the CACC Tournament.
      All-Time in CACC Tournament
      It is the eighth time in the past 10 seasons the Wildcats earned a spot in the CACC Tournament.
      Since joining the ranks of the NCAA in 2005, the Wildcats have only missed two CACC Tournament (2006 and 2010). The Wildcats have won two games in the double-elimination tournament on three separate occasions (2007, 2011, and 2012). They have an overall record of 7-14 in seven CACC Tournaments, going 2-2 last season.

      SCRANTON, Pa. – The Neumann University softball team split a pair of games at the Colonial States Athletic Conference (CSAC) Championship double elimination tournament on Friday. The Knights opened the day defeating Immaculata University 14-0 in five innings. Neumann then fell to Marywood 4-2.

      SUBJECT: Fifth Seeded Wilmington Softball Defeats Holy Family and No. 8 Caldwell on First Day of CACC Tournament
      DATE: May 2, 2014
      djl
      LAKEWOOD, N.J. - - For the first time in program history the Wilmington University softball team capture two wins to start the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference Tournament, as the fifth seeded Wildcats defeated No. 4 Holy Family, 4-2, and No. 1 Caldwell, 6-3, on Friday afternoon at Georgian Court University.
      The Wildcats (26-24 overall) advance in the winners’ bracket to play the third seeded Post University Eagles on Saturday at 1 p.m.
      Wilmington earned the fifth seed by going 16-10 in the CACC during the regular season and squared off against No. 4 Holy Family in the first round on Friday.
      The Wildcats used early runs in each contest to gain momentum, but it was a big blast from Colby Wyatt that kick started things in the day’s first game. Kelsey Doherty started the game off with a single through the left side before stealing second to stand in scoring position with no outs in the inning. Cambria Ziemba was unable to move Doherty over to third, but it wasn’t necessary as Wyatt deposited a 0-1 pitch over the fence in right center for the quick 2-0 lead.
      With two outs in the second inning, Becca Stanley started her hot afternoon with an RBI triple off the fence in left center, scoring Michelle Panasiti from first.
      Those three runs in the first two innings was more than enough for senior starting pitcher Stephanie Sarris. The Tigers (26-15 overall) got a pair of two out runs in the third inning, but Sarris only allowed three more hits the rest of the game to shut down the Holy Family offense.
      Sarris received some help from her defense in the fourth inning, after Kelsi Bunda singled to left with one out in the inning for the Tigers. Charging hard on a short fly ball, centerfielder Meghan Logullo came sliding in and caught the ball at the last second before throwing to first for the inning-ending double play.
      Savvy base running earned the Wildcats an insurance run in the sixth as Shannon McMahon took too bags on a sacrifice bunt, moving first to third. Jen Fischbach followed with an RBI single up the middle to bring home McMahon to make it 4-2.
      Sarris closed out the victory with a 1-2-3 inning in the seventh, giving the Wildcats its first upset of the afternoon.
      Facing the NFCA’s eighth ranked team in the country in the winner’s bracket, the Wildcats took the first swing in the top of the first, putting Caldwell on its heels early.
      The Wildcats put three on the board in the first inning, all with two outs and the bases empty. Wyatt started the rally with a double to left center before a walk and a Logullo single loaded the bases. Attempting to check swing, Fischbach was hit by a pitch instead, forcing in the game’s first run. Miranda Pedersen then sent a ball deep in the gap in right center, scoring both Bennett and Logullo for a 3-0 lead.
      Caldwell responded by loading the bases in the bottom of the first, but Sarris picked up a strikeout and a ground out to get out of the jam.
      The Wildcats left the bases loaded in the second but capitalized with the bases loaded again in the top of the third.
      Before they were able to get runners on base, however, Fischbach led off the inning with a solo dinger to right center. Stanley started the rally again with a single down the left field line before singles from Doherty and Ziemba loaded the bases. Wyatt came through once again, making it four straight singles with two outs to score another run in the third and give the visitors a 5-0 lead.
      The Cougars got on the boar with a two-run shot from Alyssa Calderon, bringing the Wildcats back to Earth and making it a game once more, 5-2.
      A fifth inning solo homer from Brielle Reighn closed the gap to 5-3 for the Cougars, but that would be all the favored team would get as Sarris continued to bend but not break.
      Stanley capped her day by giving the Wildcats an insurance run in the top of the seventh. Leading off the frame, Stanley sent a ball over the fence in left field for her first homer of her career to put the Wildcats ahead, 6-3.
      Caldwell had a one-out runner reach first, but Sarris induced a grounder to Doherty for the second out before getting Calderon to fly out to Stanley in left for the game-ender.
      Wyatt led the offense by going 5-for-9 on the day, hitting her second homer of the season and adding a double to knock in three runs on the day. Ziemba batted 5-for-9 on the day as well. Stanley hit a triple and a homer, going 4-for-7 for the day with two RBIs.
      Sarris went 2-0 on the day, throwing all 14 innings. She struck out five batters in each game, allowing seven hits in each contest as well.
      Elimination games begin at 11 a.m. at Georgian Court on Saturday before the Wildcats and Eagles play at 1 p.m. The Eagles defeated No. 6 Dominican, 3-2, and No. 2 Georgian Court, 2-1, to reach Saturday’s winner’s bracket game.
      Links for Saturday’s action can be found on the CACC Tournament Homepage.
