4 Wednesday, March 23, 2016 THE JOURNAL W&L Lady Eagles open softball season with a split RICHARD LEGGITT The Washington & Lee Lady Ea- gles softball team opened its 2016 season with a new coach, a scrappy freshman pitcher and a can-do atti- tude that resulted in one win and one loss last week. Behind the on-target pitching of freshman Ann Carter Harding, the Lady Eagles defeated James Monroe 17 to 1 in their first game last Tues- day. Later, on Thursday, the Lady Ea- gles were defeated in an away game at Northumberland 11 to 1. Harding had 10 strikeouts in the opening game against James Monroe in Montross. "It was a great start to our season," said new W&L Coach John Cottom. "The game boosted our confidence and allowed our team to realize all their hard preseason work paid off." "Ann Carter was ahead in the count all night," said Cottom. "She had no walks and the runner who did score and the other who got on base were the results of errors. She could have had a perfect game." Thursday in the loss to Northum- berland, things did not go as well. "Northumberland is not 10 runs bet- ter than we are," said Cottom.
