SWARTHMORE PREVIEW

Visiting this Saturday...
Swarthmore Garnet building
on last season's improvement


This Saturday, February 24, marks the home doubleheader season opener for the Wesley Wolverine fastpitch team. The games are scheduled to be played at 12:00 noon and 2:00 PM on the DuPont Softball Field, GPS: 500 Mary Street, Dover, DE.

Here's a thumbnail look at the opening day visiting team, Swarthmore Garnet, picked up from the Centennial Conference's 2018 softball preview...



"KEY RETURNEES: (CATCHER/INFIELDER #12) Kennedy Kings, So... 1st Team All-CC, 2017 CC Rookie of the Year, .368-1 HR-18 RBI; (CATCHER/OUTFIELDER #24) Emilie Morse, So... HM Team All-CC, .306-1 HR-19 RBI; (INFIELDER #11) Elizabeth Curcio, Jr... .275-11 RBI;(PITCHER/OUTFIELDER #10) Marisa Mancini, So... .279-16 RBI; (INFIELDER #21) Kalli Segel, So... .327-2 HR-10 RBI; (PITCHER/INFIELDER #20) Emily Bowman, Sr... 7-6, 74 K. 
"OUTLOOK: Swarthmore was improved last season and hopes to continue to climb the Conference rankings in 2018. Kings, the 2017 CC Rookie of the Year, returns for her sophomore campaign and is joined by Morse and Segel, all of which hit over .300 last season. In the circle, Bowman returns to lead the Garnet. If Swarthmore is able to adjust to the new system under (new Head Coach Melissa) Finley, the Garnet should be improved this season."


The Wolverines will play a second doubleheader on the following day, Sunday, February 25, versus the Gallaudet Bison, also at 12:00 Noon and 2:00 PM on DuPont Field.
