Box Score

WASHINGTON - Georgetown University softball (14-17) beat George Mason (8-23) in nine innings by a score of 2-1 in Fairfax, Va. on Wednesday afternoon. The victory marks the fourth in a row for the Hoyas.

George Mason struck first in the second inning. With a runner on second and a throwing error by Georgetown, the Patriots had one on third when a single to third base made the score 1-0.

Both teams remained scoreless until the top of the seventh when Megan Hyson (Pasadena, Md./Chesapeake) hit a solo shot to left center, evening the score at one and sending the contest to extra innings.

The Hoyas made the extra innings count, with Mackensey Carter (Mission Viejo, Calif./Mission Viejo) hitting the lead-off single for Georgetown in the eighth. The Blue & Gray loaded the bases after Hannah Slovacek (Austin, Texas/Westlake) reached first on an infield error, and Sophia Gargicevich-Almeida (Riverside, Calif./Martin Luther King) was walked. The Hoyas looked poised to win the game with two outs left in the inning, but George Mason temporarily halted Georgetown's momentum.

Georgetown finished off the game in the ninth with Taylor Koenig (Akron, Ohio/Walsh Jesuit) getting on base first with a single to center. Shikara Lowe (Beaverton, Ore./Jesuit) followed her lead with a single, and Koenig advanced to third. Koenig scored on a sacrifice fly from Carter, and the Patriots couldn't respond in the bottom of the ninth.

Carter led all Georgetown batters going three-for-four, with Hyson going two-for-five. Carter and Hyson accounted for five of seven hits for Georgetown.

Freshman pitcher Lauren O'Leary (La Canada, Calif./La Canada) nabbed the win, pitching just over five innings after relieving Carter. O'Leary threw six strikeouts.

The Hoyas travel to Piscataway, N.J. this weekend for a three-game series at Rutgers beginning at noon on Saturday, March 31.
