Softball Drops Two On Final Day of Spring Break

CLERMONT, Fla. - The SUNY Geneseo softball team dropped its final two contests in Florida, falling, 2-1, to Wellesley before dropping their second game, 3-0, to Wisconsin-Stout Friday at Legends Park. 

GAME ONE - Wellesley 2, Geneseo 1 

Sophomore pitcher Nicole Schwartz allowed one earned run on five hits across four innings pitched, but took the loss in the circle. Senior pitcher Jasmine Petrishin twirled two innings and allowed one earned run on two hits while recording four strikeouts. 

Wellesley plated a run in the first on an RBI triple, and added an insurance run in the sixth inning to take a 2-0 lead. 

In the top of the seventh, senior catcher Taylor Fedor led off with a single to center field and came around to score when first-year Taylor Riccardi laced a double to the left-center field gap. Riccardi, representing the tying run, was stranded on third base to end the game. 

GAME TWO - Wisconsin Stout 3, Geneseo 0 

Senior pitcher Taylor Moore recorded a season-high seven strikeouts but allowed three earned runs on four hits as the Blue Devils scored two in the first and added an insurance run in the sixth. Petrishin came on to pitch a scoreless seventh inning. 

The Knights threatened on several occasions, but never found the clutch hit they needed, stranding seven runs on base over the course of the game. 

Senior outfielder Danni Napoli went 2-for-3 while junior outfielder Hannah Elmer ripped a single and junior infielder Abbey Whitney laced a double.
