Notre Dame Takes Softball Doubleheader From 'Hoos

The Virginia softball team fell in both games of a doubleheader to No. 22 Notre Dame, 8-0 and 12-1, Friday at The Park. With the losses, the Cavaliers fell to 6-37 overall and 1-21 in the ACC.

In the second game, the Irish scored seven in the third inning to break open the game en route to a 12-1 win in five innings. The Cavaliers scored in the third when junior Heidi Velk singled and stole second, her 13th steal of the season. She came home on a single by freshman Lindsay Mayer.

In the first game, Notre Dame’s Laura Winter threw a perfect game with nine strikeouts, as the Irish defeated the Cavaliers, 8-0, in five innings.

The Irish scored five in the first, including a three-run home run by Winter. Cassidy Whidden added a two-run home run for Notre Dame in the fifth.

The two teams conclude the three-game series Saturday (April 19) with first pitch scheduled for noon. Before the game, the Cavaliers will hold a brief senior ceremony.
