Tough weekend series, while
Hornet freshmen played hard!

Delaware State lost three games to the MEAC first-place Norfolk State University over the weekend, despite that many Hornet freshmen remained tough outs against strong Spartan pitching, especially #6 freshman Nicole Gazzolla (Coram, NY).

Nicole had 4 hits with a stolen base in the three-game series. As of Sunday morning (4/21), before the start of today's game, Nicole led the team in several categories, most notably with her .414 batting average, 31 runs scored, 58 hits, 60 total bases, 17 stolen bases, .400 average with two outs, .418 average with runners on, and .452 average in RBI opportunities.

Other freshmen frequently on t
he base paths this weekend were #22 Rochelle Sablay (La Mirada, Calif.) with 3 hits (1 a double!), 1 run scored and 1 RBI, #18 Ashley Bennett (Delmar, DE) with 3 hits and 2 RBI, and #24 Jennifer Fischbach (Camden, DE) with 3 hits, as well. 

Freshmen #2 Sandy Hawthorne (Smithtown, NY) slammed 2 hits and 1 run scored, as #15 Chloe Oro (San Pedro, Calif.) also had 2 hits. #1 Jessica Madrid (Santa Ana, Calif) tallied 1 hit and 1 run scored and #16 Miranda Pedersen (Segundo, Calif.) contributed with a single. 

Pitch hitting senior  #23 Kelsey Lewis (Mt. Sinai, NY) delivered a key base hit, which brought home an RBI for her.
