Coach ]ohn Cot-tom's scrappy but inex- perienced team returns to action this week against Middlesex. The Eagles, 2-2 for the season, wal- loped Charles City 26 to 0 on March 23 but then lost the following day 15 to 5 to a tough Bruton team. Freshman pitcher Ann Carter Harding continues to pace the young team this season. "A.C. Harding continued her domi- nance on the mound against Charles City," said Cottom. "The freshman al- most had a perfect game. Harding al- lowed one walk in the mercy rule-short- ened game. She had 12 strikeouts on the day." Cottom said Megan Squires, Emma Oliver, Tania Dorange, Jenny Broglin, Alondra Anderson, Diamond Coving- ton, Jahania Remington all had hits in the Charles City game. "Veronica Wyszynski had multiple hits in the game," Cot-tom said. "Wyszyn- ski and Harding lead the team in stolen bases with six each and Harding also lead the team in runs scored," Cottom said. In the Charles City game, Wyszyn- ski, Dorange and Harding had inside- the-park home runs for the Eagles. The following day, however, the tables turned on W&L. Although Washington & Lee had a 3 to 2 lead early, Bruton pounded the Eagles as the game contin- ued and ultimately won 15 to 5. "It was tough loss for our inexperi- enced team," said Cottom. "Our inexpe- rience caused mental lapses and throw- ing errors." A.C. Harding had a strong game, at the plate and on the mound in the loss, Cottom said. The team's next game is April 7 at home versus Middlesex at 5 p.m. Then the softball team plays away against Caroline on April 8 and at home against Charles City on April 12. 121 inia *Customer instant rebates of $1,500 are available on cash or standard rate finance purchases of new Kubota L3301/L3901/L4701 and Grand L60 Sedes-AII equipment from participating dealers' stock.
