The University of Mary Washington softball team swept a Saturday doubleheader in Capital Athletic Conference action at the Battleground over Wesley College, winning the opener 9-0 in five innings, and winning, 8-0, in six innings in the second. UMW improves to 15-11 overall and 4-0 in CAC play.
In game one, UMW scored three times in the first, as Brandee Adams tripled, Kerry Busby doubloed, and Morgan Lamon singled, and Brittany Scites doubled to plate Lamon. The Eagles added four runs in the second, with Busby's two-run triple being the big hit. UMW added two in the third as Amanda Adams singled and Hannah Williams and Hannah Otterman doubled.

In game two, the Eagles plated two in the second on RBI singles from Koah Chitty and Alex Tenney, and added one in the third on Brianna D'Agata's sacrifice fly. The Eagles scored twice in the fifth and three more in the sixth for the eight-run cushion.
