The Virginia softball team was defeated in ACC play by North Carolina, 7-0 and 3-1, Saturday afternoon at The Park. With the losses, the Cavaliers fell to 4-31 and 1-15 in the ACC.
Senior Marcy Bowdren tossed 5.1 innings of no-hit action in the second game before the Tar Heels scored three in the sixth to win, 3-1. The two hits allowed by Bowdren and sophomore Aimee Chapdelaine, who pitched the seventh, were the lowest mark of the season by the Cavalier pitching staff.
The Cavaliers scored their run in the bottom of the sixth when freshman Iyana Hughes walked, moved to third on a single by fellow freshman Lindsay Mayer and came home on a grounder by freshman Madison Labshere.
In the first game, Lori Spingola threw a four-hit shutout and Jenna Kelly hit a grand slam as the Tar Heels were victorious, 7-0. Chapdelaine (4-26) tossed a complete game and matched her career high with five strikeouts for UVa, but took the loss.
