GCC Softball Team Set to Wrap up Play in South Carolina

Softball

The Genesee Community College softball team began its season in South Carolina and after four starts continues to look for its first win.

Of the four contests, the Cougars came closest to victory in the season-opener against Frederick Community College. The Cougars played even after the third inning, but allowing four runs during the first three innings proved to be the difference in the 6-2 loss March 10.

The team plated five hits and was led by a pair each by Shiori Ubukata and Sam Tatarski. Jackie Guzdek also added a hit.

After a pair of rainouts March 12, the Cougars dropped a pair of games March 13 to Rowan College and Illinois Central, 11-2 and 23-0, respectively.

In the loss to Rowan, Genesee again finished with five hits with another pair by Ubukata to lead the Cougars with one being a double. Also registering hits for Genesee was Mikayla Bush, Katie Haefele and Nicole Cooper.

Against Illinois, Genesee recorded three hits with one each by Brittni Way, Cooper and Tatarski.

The Cougars played one game March 14 with a 17-0 loss to Monroe College with hits coming from Haefele and Ubukata, who improved her team-high hit total to five on the season.

Genesee wraps up its South Carolina trip March 15 with games against Joliet Junior College and Rend Lake College.
