Virginia Softball Falls to Notre Dame on Senior Day

The Virginia softball team fell on Senior Day, 15-8, to No. 22 Notre Dame Saturday afternoon at The Park. The Cavaliers dropped to 6-38 overall and 1-22 in the ACC.

Before the game, Virginia honored its three seniors, Marcy Bowdren, Stephanie Harris and Karli Johnson.

The Cavaliers were down 12-0 in the fourth but rallied back, striking for five runs. Freshman Lindsay Mayer doubled off the center-field wall, scoring junior Heidi Velk. Freshman Madison Labshere doubled off the wall in left to score fellow freshman Katie Park and Mayer. Junior Megan Harris homered on the next pitch to cut the lead to 12-5. It was her first home run of the season.

In the fifth, the Cavaliers loaded the bases with no outs before Mayer walked to score Velk. Labshere followed with another walk to score freshman Iyana Hughes, but the Cavaliers couldn't muster any more runs in the frame.

Virginia scored their eighth run on another bases-loaded walk for Labshere that scored Hughes in the sixth.

Up next, the Cavaliers conclude their 2014 home schedule with James Madison in a doubleheader on April 22 at 5 p.m. and Liberty in a twin bill on April 23 at 4 p.m.
