  • BOCA RATON, FL – On the second day of competition at the Florida Atlantic Tournament in Boca Raton, FL, the Rutgers softball team (0-4) dropped a close 3-0 decision to North Carolina State and in the final game of the evening, the Scarlet Knights fell to the eighth-ranked Michigan Wolverines by a score of 8-0.

    In the first game of the day, Rutgers dropped a 3-0 battle to North Carolina State.

    Junior Christina Gillman (Valencia, CA) allowed two runs in the second inning when North Carolina State’s Shanna Smith tripled to left center field to drive in a run, followed by Lee Hasper’s RBI single up the middle.

    The Scarlet Knights had a late chance in the sixth inning, when senior Crystal Vargas (Jersey City, NJ) reached on a single to third base, freshman Mallory Miller (Anaheim, CA) walked and senior Marisa Orsogna (Edison, NJ) was hit by a pitch to load the bases, but senior Stephanie Johannsen (Penn Valley, CA) grounded to first base to end the inning. Hasper homered to left field in the seventh to give NC State its final score. Vargas finished the game 3-for-3, while Gillman (0-2) went seven innings, allowing three runs and striking out four.

    In game two, Michigan jumped out to an early lead with a two-run home run to left center field by Samantha Findlay. The Scarlet Knights were able to keep the game close before the Wolverines responded with a five-run fifth inning, highlighted by Tiffany Worthy’s two-run RBI single through the right side.

    Junior Jessica Crosby (Sedro-Woolley, WA) (0-2) pitched 4.1 innings, giving up eight runs on 13 hits, while striking out three.

    RU will return to FAU Field for the final day of competition on Sunday, Feb. 20.
