The Roanoke College women ended their regular season last Saturday by dropping a doubleheader to host Randolph-Macon. The Maroons lost 1-0 and 12-5 in Ashland to finish the regular season at 23-14 with an 11-9 record in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference.
The conference tournament is this weekend at the James I. Moyer Complex, and seedings were yet to be determined at press time. The Maroons dropped to sixth in the conference when they lost the doubleheader. That put them a half game behind 11-8 Lynchburg, who still had one game to play. If the Maroons tie Lynchburg RC holds the tie-breaker and would be the fifth seed.
Virginia Wesleyan finished the regular season at 20-0 and clinched the top seed weeks ago. The rest of the conference is tight, with just five games separating second through eighth.
Last Saturday in Ashland Randolph-Macon scored in the bottom of the sixth to take a 1-0 decision over Roanoke in game one. Erin Forbes and Taylor Sutherland each recorded a game-high two hits. Teresa Wagner (8-5) was tabbed with the loss allowing only one run off three hits in 6.0 innings.
In the second game Katie Smith went 2-for-2 with two doubles and Ruthie Williams tallied a team-high three RBI. Emily Salsberry was tagged with the loss in 4.1 innings, allowing six runs off nine hits.
