Hot Times in Hitsville
Lifted by a pair of record-setting performances this week, Washington College’s softball team is storming into spring.
Two record-setting performances this week helped Washington College’s softball team slam the door on Haverford College—in their own house—and pumped the Shorewomen’s record to 16-4 overall and 5-1 in conference play.
Team co-captain and first-baseman Lauren Dockrill ’14 broke the Centennial Conference record for career hits during Thursday’s double-header, while Kylie Nottingham ’14, the Shorewomen’s catcher, became the first player in team history to reach 100 career RBI.
Dockrill, a business major and psychology minor, nailed four hits and upped her career total to 195, cracking the previous conference record of 191, set in 1999-2002 by an Ursinus ball player. On the way to her 100 RBI, Nottingham, an art major, also broke the school record for career walks, set at 51 by Diane Green from 2003 to 2006 and matched by Lindsey Glascock ’13, in 2010-2013.
The stellar performances helped WC win the first game 8-4, and the second 4-3, improving to 16-4 overall and 5-1 in conference play. The Shorewomen return to action Saturday, April 5, with a 1:00 p.m. Centennial Conference double-header at Dickinson.
