CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The Virginia (12-25, 2-7 ACC) softball team continues conference play this weekend, traveling to face Boston College (19-13, 3-3 ACC) to face the Eagles in a three-game series.
The weekend series begins with a doubleheader at 10 a.m. on Saturday and concludes with a single game at noon on Sunday. Fans can track all the action through live stats linked at VirginiaSports.com.
The Cavaliers look to pick up the second straight weekend series in conference play, and second consecutive on the road, after taking the series at Pittsburgh last weekend. It marked the first ACC series win on the road for Virginia since the 2012 season. Virginia won the series with Boston College at home a year ago.
Junior Katie Park (Scottsdale, Ariz.) continues to lead the Virginia offense, hitting .283 with six home runs, 28 RBI and 13 runs scored. She is joined in offensive scoring by Iyana Hughes (Manteca, Calif.) who has scored a team-leading 24 runs and is 11-of-12 on steal attempts toward the top of the Cavalier lineup. Also efficient at the top of the lineup as been freshman Allie Arneson (Aledo, Texas) who has drawn 15 walks to only 11 strikeouts on the season.
Erika Osherow (Darien, Conn.) anchors the Cavaliers in the circle with a 9-15 record and 22 starts through 30 appearances. She has pitched a team-leading 146.1 innings and has posted 91 strikeouts to 35 walks with a 3.06 ERA. She has also turned in 16 complete games, including four consecutive complete-game efforts as she picked up both wins at Pittsburgh, struck out a season-high eight batters in a mid-week win over Radford and also held No. 7 James Madison in check in a 1-0 loss on Wednesday.
Lacy Smith (Lancaster, Pa.) has made 18 appearances with 13 starts in the circle for the Cavaliers and holds a 5.22 ERA with three complete games and two saves, while Allison Davis (Oak Hill, Va.) has also seen eight appearances in the circle.
Boston College reached its 3-3 record in ACC play by sweeping Georgia Tech in the opening weekend before being swept last weekend at Virginia Tech. The Eagles also split a pair of mid-week games this week, falling to Harvard before beating Boston University.
