The Delaware State Hornets' lead off hitter, center fielder Jessica Madrid, started today, Monday's game versus Fairleigh Dickinson Knights, just where she left off yesterday. She slammed a pitch to shortstop and beat the throw to first as the first Hornet to bat in the bottom of the first. The contest was the final game for the Hornets in the Spartan Clash Tournament, Norfolk, Va.,
Jessica would single again, this time up the middle, with a runner on, in the bottom of the fifth, where, two plays later, she had advanced to second and third.
Jessica was 2 for 3 on the day. For the tournament, she was 3 for 7 with 2 walks and 1 RBI.
