March 2, 2012
Georgetown University softball (7-6) lost 5-0 to Ohio State (11-5) in the opening game of the Citrus Classic Tournament in Kissimmee, Fla.
The Buckeyes struck quickly in the first inning, hitting a homerun to drive in two runs.
In the third inning, the Hoyas looked to get back in the game with Alexandria Anttila (Antioch, Ill./Antioch Community) doubling to get on base, and eventually advancing to third off a single from Elyse Graziano (Floral Park, N.Y./Sacred Heart Academy).
At the top of the fourth, Mackensey Carter (Mission Viejo, Calif./Mission Viejo) singled to left field and advanced to second after Hannah Slovacek (Austin, Texas/Westlake) advanced to first on a wild pitch.
Melanie Nichols pitched a five-hit game for the Buckeyes.
