The softball team continued its NCAC winning streak, sweeping a doubleheader from the College of Wooster by identical 5-2 scores. After Wednesday’s win over Capital University, the Ladies now boast a third-place standing in the conference with a 9-5 record (29-8 overall).
Lindsey Susolik ’16 got the Ladies off to a promising start, nailing her seventh homer of the season and driving Jane Ghublikian ’16 home in the process. In the bottom of the third, Wooster erased the two-run deficit with a two run single, but was held there. Kenyon reasserted its lead in the sixth on an RBI single by Chelsea Delaney ’15 and extended that lead by two in the final inning off hits from Maddy Stark ’15 and Ghublikian.
The Ladies also started strong in the second matchup, scoring three first inning runs courtesy of a two run double from Delaney. Emily Olsen ’17 continued the momentum for the Ladies with her pinch run, stealing third and coming home off a fielding error.
The Scots chipped away with an RBI in the second and a two-run double in the fourth. However, Stark would hold them there with her stellar pitching before an RBI single by Maldonado brought the lead to 5-2, which would stand as the final score.
Yesterday, the Ladies played Capital University and came away with a 10-8 victory. Stark pitched a complete game for the win, while Susolik drove in two runs on her eighth homer of 2015. For their final NCAC regular-season matchup against Allegheny College, “We don’t want to go in there expecting anything,” Ghublikian said. “If we take two, we’re going to make it to the NCAC championship.”
