NYU Sweeps Old Westbury

NYU Sweeps Old Westbury

From NYU Athletics

The New York University softball team won both games of a doubleheader with SUNY - Old Westbury on Saturday, April 23, at the Bahoshy Softball Complex at Fordham University in the Bronx, NY.

The Violets (15-13) defeated the Panthers (10-15) by a score of 8-0 in game one.

Jacqueline Tremblay started the opener and pitched five shutout innings, allowing six hits and striking out two.

After a pitching-dominated start, Molly Webber broke the game open with a bases-clearing triple in the fifth inning to put NYU ahead 5-0.

"It took us a little bit of time to adjust to the pitching," explained Head Coach Now-Allah James. "Once we got dialed in, we strung together some hits and we were able to put eight runs on the board in a short span. 

In the nightcap, Karissa Zubulake pitched a complete game, conceding two runs on six hits while striking out nine.

The Violets took the lead when five consecutive hitters reached base to begin the third inning. A Marisa Bella two-run triple highlighted the barrage, which gave NYU a 4-0 advantage which would prove to be the difference in the 6-2 contest.

"We did what we needed to do to win this game," continued James. "Our pitching locked them down, and we came up with big hits at the right times."
