Virginia Softball Eliminated From ACC Tournament

MARIETTA, Ga. - The University of Virginia softball team was eliminated from the ACC Softball Championship Friday, losing a pair of games, 4-3 to Maryland and 7-2 to Georgia Tech.

In the opening game of the tournament, 3rd-seeded Maryland edged 2nd-seeded Virginia 4-3. Maryland scored four unearned runs in the first inning on no hits and three Virginia errors. Virginia cut the Terrapins' lead to one run in the fifth inning on a home run by Stacy Holmes, but Maryland pitcher Kelly Shipman held on for the win, allowing seven hits with four strikeouts and two walks in a complete game.

In Virginia's second game of the tournament, Georgia Tech won 7-2, sending the Cavaliers out of the double elimination tournament.

Tech jumped on top in the second inning, when Beth Warren, who was 3-for-3 with one run and one RBI in the game, singled to drive home first baseman Lori Steiner, who was 3-for-4 with three runs scored and two doubles. Tech went on to score another run, assuming a 2-0 lead.

However, Virginia second baseman Stacy Holmes hit the first pitch of the fourth inning over the left field fence, her third home run of the season but her second of the day, following her blast in the Maryland game.

Tech responded quickly, scoring a run in the bottom of the inning to strech its lead back out to 3-1. The Jackets went on to score three runs in the fourth and two in the fifth.

Tech pitcher Erin Ryan picked up the win after allowing eight hits in a complete game. Kristi Fox took the loss.
