After riding a five-game winning streak into the week, the Colonials have gone cold, dropping five games in six days, culminating in a three-game sweep at the hands of Charlotte over the weekend. GW (16-19, 5-6 Atlantic 10) saw its ninth-inning rally fall short in Sunday’s 6-4 loss to the 49ers and lost 10-9 on a walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth in the second game of Saturday’s double-header.
GW’s softball team split a doubleheader at Dayton Saturday, prevailing 3-2 in the first game before falling 9-2 in the second. The Colonials’ (12-25, 3-9 A-10) game one victory came when freshman Krissy Mackiewicz broke a tie with an RBI single in the sixth inning while senior Amanda Gabriel held the Flyers to two runs and struck out nine in a complete-game effort on the mound. The second game got out of hand quickly, with Dayton putting up four runs in the first frame and holding on for the win.
