Zagol pitched a pair of complete game two-hitters and allowed only one run as she helped lead Virginia to the title of its own 2000 UVA Cavalier Classic.
Zagol posted a 9-0 win over Ohio University on Friday, March 3. In the five-inning contest, Zagol allowed just two singles and struck out eight of the 20 batters she faced. Zagol fired her second two-hitter of the UVA Cavalier Classic in a 7-1 win against Eastern Kentucky on Sunday, March 5. Against the Colonels, she struck out seven batters while walking one.
For her efforts, Zagol was named to the 10-member UVA Cavalier Classic All-Tournament team. Virginia won the tournament, held at The Park in Charlottesville, with a 4-0 record.
With the two victories, Zagol improved her record to 3-4 on the season. She also lowered her earned run average to a team-best 1.42. She leads UVa with 41 strikeouts in 49.1 innings of work as well.
