NCAA Softball: Bowie State Falls in Season Opener Non-Conference Doubleheader at Savannah State

SAVANNAH, Ga. – Bowie State University Softball showed tremendous grit in Friday’s (2/14) non-conference doubleheader at Savannah State University but fell just short by scores of 3-2 and 7-6 in the Bulldogs’ season opener.

Freshman Breanna Harvey (York, Pa.) led Bowie State’s Bulldogs with four hits over two games, which included a pair of doubles a homerun and three RBI. Juniors Morgan White (Baltimore, Md.) and Aseyah Alexander (Silver Spring, Md.) tallied a pair of hits each and three other Bowie State players contributed one hit in the twin bill.

The Bulldogs got on the board first in the top of the 3rd inning when junior Morgana Johnson (Baltimore, Md.) scored on an unearned run. Johnson reached on a bunt single to start the inning, advanced to second on a Savannah State error and moved to third on a wild pitch.
Savannah State (1-7) pushed its first run of the opening game across the plate in the bottom of the 4th inning when a Shanya Byers triple scored Kameryn Baker from first to tie the game at 1 apiece. (continued below.........)

Savannah State scored two in the bottom of the 3rd inning via double by Jalexia Wright and a single from Stacie Smith to cut the Bulldogs lead in half at 4-2.
