The Dickinson College softball team suffered a pair of losses to Alvernia University on Thursday night. The Crusaders continued to roll, improving to 24-2 on the season, posting wins of 6-0 and 7-0.


Lebanon Valley 7-13, Franklin & Marshall 2-9
Franklin & Marshall dropped a softball doubleheader to non-conference opponent Lebanon Valley on Thursday afternoon. The Dutchmen (18-10) scored runs in the final four innings to get the first win 7-2, and secured the second game with a six-run sixth frame to make the final 13-9 before the contest was called due to darkness. The Diplomats fell to 11-14-1 on the season.


Haverford 14-13, PSU-Abington 2-1
Jen DiCandilo's hot bat helped the Haverford College softball team to a sweep of a non-conference doubleheader against Penn State-Abington at Class of '95 Field on Thursday afternoon. The Fords took down the Nittany Lions, 14-2, in Game 1 and capped off the day with a 13-1 victory in Game 2.


Moravian 3-6, Muhlenberg 0-1
The Mules (13-15) managed only six hits and one unearned run in dropping a doubleheader to the Greyhounds, 3-0 and 6-1.  The high-powered offense of the Muhlenberg softball team, which had scored at least six runs in a school-record 13 consecutive games, was quieted by the pitching of Moravian.


Swarthmore 6-6, Arcadia 1-5
Junior Kate Smayda's RBI single with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning of Wednesday's second game with Arcadia gave the Swarthmore softball team (14-14) a thrilling doubleheader sweep of the Knights. Behind a great outing from starting pitcher Sarina Lowe, Swat cruised in the first game by a score of 6-1. Smayda's dramatics and towering home runs from senior Elizabeth Cushing and sophomore Nicole Aaron gave the Garnet a 6-5 (9 innings) victory in the second game.
