Softball Team Jumps Out to a 3-1 Start

The softball team kicked off the season at the Spartan Classic at Norfolk State University in Norfolk, Virginia. They took three out of their four games, starting off the season in a solid fashion.

The first game was against Norfolk State on Saturday afternoon. The Hawks dominated the Spartans 10-4 and then defeated the University of Delaware 6-3. Second baseman Christine Scherr led the way for the Hawks with a home run and four runs batted in.

Down 3-0 going into the bottom of the fourth inning, Monmouth used an eight run inning to take a commanding 8-3 lead. They never looked back from there.

Against Delaware, the Hawks scored five runs in the fifth and sixth innings to pull away with the win.

On Sunday, Monmouth split their two-game doubleheader. They lost to Army 8-4 in the first game, and defeated Delaware again by a score of 14-6 in the second game of the day.

The Hawks return back to action on March 8 at the Aggie Invitational at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas. They will play five games in a three day stretch.
