CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The Virginia (7-12) softball team continues to play on the road with a pair of mid-week doubleheaders, facing Towson (12-4) in a two-game set on Tuesday and George Washington (5-6) in a twin bill on Wednesday.
The doubleheader against Towson is scheduled for a 2 p.m. first pitch on Tuesday, while Wednesday’s doubleheader at George Washington is also scheduled for a 2 p.m. first pitch. Fans can follow the action live through live stats at VirginiaSports.com. Towson will also provide live video of both games.
The road trip north continues a season-long road trip of 23 consecutive games for the Cavaliers, who have spent the first four weeks of the season on the road. Virginia has played at four weekend tournaments to date with the games against the Tigers and the Colonials being the first mid-week contests of the season.
Virginia is led at the plate by junior Katie Park (Scottsdale, Ariz.). The catcher/infielder hits at a .400 clip this season with a team-leading five home runs and 24 RBI. She has also scored 10 runs on the season. Park is joined by freshman Allie Arneson (Aledo, Texas) who is hitting .385 on the year with a home run and 10 runs scored.
Iyana Hughes (Manteca, Calif.) is also one of the key cogs in the offense as the speedy outfielder has scored a team-leading 19 runs on the season and is 9-of-10 in steal attempts.
Virginia is led in the circle by freshman Erika Osherow (Darien, Conn.) who has made 10 starts in 15 appearances and worked 72.1 innings. She has 48 strikeouts and holds a 3.48 ERA in her time in the circle.
Towson is coming off a home loss to Bowling Green on Sunday that snapped a five-game win streak for the Tigers. George Washington is coming off a Sunday loss to Monmouth that snapped a five-game win streak for the Colonials.
Virginia will then return home to compete for the first time this season, hosting Notre Dame in a three-game series to begin Atlantic Coast Conference play.
