|Softball Team Gets 1st Win; Williams is Player of the Week|
The softball team won its first game of the 2009 season, defeating Lindenwood University (MO), 9-8 in 9 innings on Friday afternoon. The catalyst for the Warriors win was junior pitcher Jessica Williams (Seattle, WA/Meadowdale). The righthander kept Lindenwood in check for most of the game allowing five earned runs and scattering ten hits, but it was at the plate where Williams was perfect. She went 5-for-5 with 5 RBI and one stolen base. Freshman infielder Megan Groce (Milford, MI/Milford) and sophomore Brittany Bingham (Woodbridge, VA/CD Hylton SR) each recorded a triple. For her effort, Williams was chosen WHAC Player of the Week. The Warriors return to action at the NTC Tournament in Clermont, FL, from March 13 to 21.
