GU rallies to defeat Washington Adventist in first road game of the season

TAKOMA PARK, Md. – The Gallaudet University softball team hit the road for
the first time this season and made the short trip to play Washington
Adventist University, here Sunday afternoon, in a non-conference
seven-inning game.

Gallaudet (5-5) rallied to score five runs in the seventh inning en route
to a 9-6 win over the NAIA-affiliated Shock (1-5).

Washington Adventist (1-5) scored six runs in the second inning to end the
day for GU freshman pitcher Elizabeth Stern (Lexington, Mass.). Freshman
Kendall Hudson (Blissfield, Mich.) came on and pitched the remainder of
the game for the Bison.

This is the second time in nine days these two teams faced each other. The
Bison defeated the Shock, 6-5, on March 15 at the GU Softball Complex.

UP NEXT
Gallaudet returns to its cozy confines for a 12-game homestand spanning
the next two weeks. The Bison will face Notre Dame of Maryland University
(2-3) on Wednesday, March 27, at 3 p.m. for a non-conference doubleheader.
