CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The University of Virginia softball team’s game against 19th-ranked Georgia Tech Saturday (April 2) at The Park was halted in the fourth inning due to inclement weather. The game will be resumed on Sunday (April 3) at 11:30 a.m. with the Yellow Jackets leading 1-0 with two outs in the bottom of the fourth inning. The second game of the series will be played 20 minutes after the conclusion of the halted game. The third game of the series will not be played.

When rain forced the game to be halted, UVa fourth-year Jenn Wynn (Herndon, Va./Herndon) was at second base after drawing a two-out walk and first-year shortstop Kierstie Cameron (Pinon Hills, Calif./Serrano) had just reached first base on a hit by pitch. Second-year first baseman Brooke Sorber (Alexandria, Va./Mount Vernon) is the next scheduled batter when the game is resumed.

Georgia Tech (33-8, 5-1 ACC) took a 1-0 lead with an unearned run in the top of the second inning. Savannah Brown led off the inning with a double to right field. She moved to third on a sacrifice bunt and scored on a two-out infield error by the Cavaliers.

Virginia (13-18, 2-1 ACC) has one hit in the game against Georgia Tech’s Jessica Sallinger, a single up the middle by third-year third baseman Sara Larquier (Burbank, Calif./Burbank). In 3.2 innings, Sallinger has fanned six Cavaliers and walked one. UVa second-year Coty Tolar (Marietta, Ga./Lassiter) has allowed the one unearned run on three hits.
