After softball’s tournament in Tucson last week, they traveled to Tempe to take on another Arizona power, Arizona State. Coming in, the Sun Devils were ranked number 21 in the country. After the seven innings had been played, it was the Eagles who were on top, by a score of 3-2.

Heading into this weekend’s tournament in Florida, the Eagles stood at an impressive 7-3 record. After the weekend, that record would fall to 8-7.

BC started off the weekend with a win on Friday against Wisconsin, 4-1 behind strong pitching from Jessica Dreswick. Taylor Coroneos went 3-4 to lead the Eagles offensively.

In the second game of the weekend, the Eagles faced off against the host Florida Gulf Coast. In a 9 inning battle, Jordon Weed threw a gem. She threw all 9 innings only allowing one earned run. Unfortunately, it was not the earned runs, but the unearned runs that came back to haunt the Eagles, as they could not get the bats going and lost 3-1.

Against Rutgers, both Kendra Freidt and Megan Overton gave up two earned runs while the bats were quiet again, leading to a 4-0 loss.

Playing Florida International, Jessica Dreswick took to the mound again. She again proved tough to hit, allowing only five hits and two earned runs over the full seven innings. The bats were quiet for the third straight game, and the Eagles lost their third in a row, this time by a score of 2-1.

In the finale of the weekend, BC faced Hofstra University. Again, the bats could not get going, and for the fourth game in a row, BC wasted a strong start by its pitching and could not get above one run, this time losing 3-1.

In the next week, the Eagles will look to bounce back against Kansas, Charlotte, Florida International (again), James Madison, Chattanooga, and Mercer. Good luck girls!
