Cunningham's Walkoff Single Gives Presidents Split In Maryland
SALISBURY, Md. -- Sophomore catcher Kelsey Cunningham's (McMurray, Pa./Peters Township) walkoff single helped Washington & Jefferson earn a Saturday split in the second day of action at the 2012 Salisbury Sea Gull Softball Tournament.
The Presidents (1-3) defeated Stevenson 6-5 to earn their first victory of the season after falling to King's 10-8 earlier in the day.
Junior Erin Shuman (Chester, W.Va./Oak Glen) was the pitcher of record in both games. Freshman first baseman Paige Deley (Coraopolis, Pa./Montour) led the lineup with five hits during the afternoon.
Sophomore Madison Rotto (Sarver, Pa./Freeport) hit a three-run homer in the loss to the Monarchs, while freshman Sadie Marak (Butler, Pa./Butler) smacked a two-run shot.
W&J returns to action next weekend on its annual spring trip to the National Training Center Spring Games in Orlando, Florida. The Presidents open play Saturday against Wisconsin-Superior (9:00 am).
