Georgia Tech Topped by Kennesaw State, 4-1

Box Score

THE FLATS – Georgia Tech softball (5-9) dropped a low-scoring contest to Kennesaw State on Thursday, 4-1. The Yellow Jackets jumped ahead first with a solo shot over dead center by senior first baseman Tricia Awald, but the Owls posted four following unanswered runs to take the win.

Awald led off the bottom of the second with her solo smash for the first run on the board, but Kennesaw State responded in the top of the third with a pair of RBI singles. After two scoreless innings, the Owls solidified their lead in the top of the sixth with a two-run homerun and held on the rest of the way for the 4-1 win.

Game Notes

  • Awald led the way at the plate for Tech, going 2-for-3 with the solo bomb for an RBI and a run scored.
  • Junior infielder Bailee Zeitler led off at the dish for the Jackets for the first time this season.
  • From the circle, senior right hander Morgan Bruce had the best outing with three strikeouts and two hits allowed in 2 2/3 innings of work.
