Softball Sales


RICHMOND, Va. - It was an early start for the Lady Bulldogs and the team played tough, but came up a little short at Virginia Union by scores of 8-7 in nine innings and 14-6.

Senior Megan Alexander (Damascus, Md.) paced Bowie State with four hits, three of which were doubles and recorded a team-high five RBI. Sophomore Cassandra Clayborne (Damascus, Md.) had three hits over two games and junior Aiyana McNair (Baltimore, Md.) along with sophomore Kiara Washington added two hits each.

With the threat of inclement weather, the first pitch of game one came at 9:30 am and the Lady Bulldogs took an early 3-0 lead in the first on VUU’s Lady Panthers. Alexander was the only BSU player to get a hit in the opening inning, recording a double to center field.

Virginia Union responded with five in their share of the first as all nine batters getting a crack at BSU sophomore pitcher Hayley Flint (Mesa, Ariz.).

Bowie State tied the game at 5-5 in the top of the second only to see Virginia Union push one across in the bottom of the third to retake the lead at 6-5.

The Lady Bulldogs used a three-hit, two-run fourth to shift the advantage back over to the guests at 7-6.

After a scoreless fifth inning, Bowie State’s Washington singled to center field in the top of the sixth, but was left stranded on the bag.

With the Lady Panthers trailing 7-6 Virginia Union's Shakia Mackey doubled to score Kierris Doyle to tie the game. Doyle reached via a BSU fielding error to begin the seventh.

In the bottom of the ninth inning, VUU's Tyana Daniels doubled, then Doyle followed with another double to score the extra inning winning run.

Virginia Union's Danielle McEachern picked up the complete-game win in the opener.

In the second game, Daniels had four hits, including a double while McEachern and Sharmanda Fambro drove in two runs apiece as Virginia Union claimed a six-inning affair 14-6.

VUU's Quincy Lewis struck out three and allowed no earned runs to pick up her sixth win of the season.

Bowie State recorded four hits in the final game of the twinbill, with Clayborne, McNair, Alexander and junior Mariela Hernandez (Del Rio, Texas) responsible for one each.

Bowie State’s next outing will be a non-conference doubleheader on Wednesday (March 27th) at Washington Adventist University. First pitch is scheduled for 1 pm at the MLK Recreation Park.
