GLENVILLE, W.Va. – The West Virginia Wesleyan softball team lost 1-0 in eight innings against Seton Hill on Saturday afternoon in game one of the MEC/PSAC Challenge. Hannah Hudson struck out 14 batters in the loss.

Seton Hill was able to get a runner in scoring position in the bottom of the first but Hudson got out of the early jam with a strikeout. Jenna Christopher got the first hit of the game for the Lady Bobcats in the top of the third and stole second to get in scoring position. Christopher would be left stranded after Alyssa Rohr lined out to first.

Very little offense was seen for both sides until the bottom of the fifth where the Griffins got the bases loaded. Hudson got out of the jam once again with a strikeout. Wesleyan had a chance to take the lead going into the bottom of the seventh as Megan McMackin got herself to third with two outs. Taylor Swartz popped out to the second baseman to end the inning.

The Lady Bobcats had runners on second and third in the top of the eighth with one out but finished the inning with a strikeout and a lineout. SHU took advantage of this in the bottom of the eighth, playing small ball and walking it off with a bunt to win.
