Marlins Add a Pair of Games this Weekend
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. -- The No. 3 Virginia Wesleyan College softball team will travel to Dover, Delaware on Saturday to face Wesley College at 11 a.m. before facing Immaculata at 1 p.m.
The contests were added to the Marlin schedule after contests against nationally-ranked Messiah College, originally scheduled for Saturday, were cancelled due to winter storm Stella that has slammed the Northeast.
The Marlins will look to bounce back after suffering their first set back of the season to Christopher Newport University. Kiersten Richardson, Cassetty Howerin, Liz Bailey, Beth Ford, Blake Henderson, and Amanda Archer are all hitting over .400 to power the Marlin offense who are hitting at .379 as a team, the 10th best team batting average in all of Division III.
The pitching staff currently possesses a 0.88 team ERA and fans can look for Hanna Hull and Courtney Wright to man the circle. Hull has not allowed an earned run over the past 26 innings and is second in the nation with 90 strikeouts on the year.
