Bowie State University Softball Roughs Up The Lincoln University 10-0, 19-3


BOWIE, Md. - Bowie State University softball (11-15, 7-5 CIAA, 4-2 North) showed no signs of rust after a seven-day layoff, roughing up visiting Lincoln University 10-0 and 19-3 in CIAA Northern Division action on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon. 

Sophomore Hailey Bethke (Havre de Grace, Md.) paced the Lady Bulldogs with five hits while junior Danielle Watt (St. Leonard, Md.) and freshman Nicoleen Ochoa (Madison, Ohio) added four hits each of the two-game sweep. Watt recorded a game-high five RBI and Bethke along with Ochoa and junior Caitlin O’Neill contributed four RBI each.

The Lady Bulldogs tallied eight hits in game one and pounded out a season-high 17 hits in game two. Ochoa and Bethke led the home team with a pair of hits in the opener. Ochoa went the distance in the circle in game one allowing just three hits over five innings, striking out seven.

Lincoln (0-22, 0-12 CIAA, 0-6 North) took an early 2-0 lead in the top of the 1st inning of the nightcap only to see Bowie State score five in their share of the inning. The BSU Lady Bulldogs added two runs in the bottom of the second and exploded for seven runs in the bottom of the third inning for a 14-3 advantage.

Lincoln’s Toni Smith (New Castle, Del.) belted a solo homerun (her first of the season) in the top of the 4th inning, but that would be all for the Lady Lions.

Bowie State pushed five across the dish on seven hits in the bottom of the 4th inning to put the exclamation point on the game.

Danielle Owes (Edgewater Park, N.J.) suffered the loss for the Lady Lions in game two while Bowie State O’Neill earned the victory which included four strikeouts.

Watt, Bethke and freshman Jacqueline Pickering (Bowie, Md.) led Bowie State with three hits apiece in the nightcap and each tallied three RBI.

Smith and Emily Woodruff (San Diego, Calif.) led Lincoln with a pair of hits over the two-game setback. As a team, the Lady Lions managed only seven hits in the doubleheader.

Bowie State will have another extended break before returning to action on Saturday (April 25th), hosting Elizabeth City State in a doubleheader beginning at 1 pm.
