Raleigh, NC - Trailing 7-0 to William Peace, the Wesleyan College softball team made a strong run at the Pacers in the seventh inning but came up just short, falling to the USA South foe 8-5. The Pacers took the first game of the doubleheader as well, defeating Wesleyan 8-0.


  • Junior Tiffani Linville picked up two of Wesleyan's five hits in Game 1. Claire Crawford, McKenzi Shelpman, and Alana Walker each added a hit.
  • In Game 2, the Wolves trailed 8-1 entering the seventh inning. Singles by Tiffani Linville and Claire Crawford and a double by Alana Walker pushed four runs across the plate for the Wolves before the Pacers defense stood tall and closed out the game.


Wesleyan head coach Dickey Hightower remarked, "We played much better today. We hit the ball a lot better, and it was certainly nice to finally score a few runs. We received good effort from everyone and are starting to turn a corner. We need to get a few more wins as the season winds down, and I know we are capable of making that happen."
