Softball Earns Three Hits In Sweep at No. 6 Salisbury

SALISBURY, Md.—Against the number six team in the nation the Knights' softball team was unable to produce any runs, and only able to earn three hits in a double-header sweep where the Knights fell 24-0 and 18-0.

The Sea Gulls (22-3, 10-2 CAC), who are currently behind Christopher Newport in the CAC standings, scored runs in eight consecutive half innings, spanning both five-inning games. In game one pitcher Rachel Johnson threw a perfect game against the Knights, the second time this season the Knights have been unable to have a runner reach first. 

Southern Virginia (0-23, 0-14 CAC) was able to get one of their three hits in the top of the fourth of game two from second baseman MaKenzie Cox, who singled to left field with two outs. 

The other two hits came from right fielder and firstbasman Bianca Mendez and Keelie Gray who singled to center and left field but were stranded on base. 

The Knights have six more chances to end their winless season in three non-league double headers this next week. They take the field at home on Tuesday at 3:30 and 5:30 p.m. against Randolph-Macon College.
