CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.—The Virginia softball team dropped a pair of games to in-state foe James Madison, 4-2 and 5-2, Tuesday (April 22) at The Park. The Cavaliers fell to 6-40 on the season, while the Dukes improved to 35-13.

In the second game, JMU’s Caitlin Sandy hit a first-inning grand slam as the Dukes went on to win, 5-2. Sophomore Aimee Chapdelaine (Pembroke Pines, Fla.) settled down after the first, allowing no hits in the final six innings while recording a career-high nine strikeouts.

Chapdelaine also hit the first home run of her career, a long shot to left, to cut the JMU lead to 4-1. Senior Marcy Bowdren (Fairfax Station, Va.) launched a line drive over the center-field wall in the sixth to make it 4-2. It was Bowdren’s team-leading seventh of the season and a new career high.

Heather Kiefer (17-7) earned the win for JMU, allowing two runs in five innings of work, while Jailyn Ford earned her fourth save after pitching two scoreless innings of relief.

In the third inning of the first game, freshman Iyana Hughes (Manteca, Calif.) singled and scored on a double down the left-field line by fellow freshman Katie Park (Scottsdale, Ariz.) to tie the game, 1-1.

JMU took the lead for good when Catherine Clavin hit a pinch-hit two-run double in the fourth inning. Ford (18-4) took the win after pitching 4.2 innings of scoreless relief. Chapdelaine (6-34) struck out four in the complete game loss.
