WASHINGTON – The Georgetown softball team (23-21, 9-8 BIG EAST) hosts the Seton Hall Pirates (15-31, 9-9 BIG EAST) in a three-game series on the final weekend of BIG EAST play in Washington, D.C. before the BIG EAST Championship next weekend. The two squads will play a doubleheader on Saturday, May 3 followed by a single game on Sunday, May 4 to conclude the regular season. Games will begin at noon (ET) at Guy Mason Field.
Georgetown will honor its five seniors prior to the start of the doubleheader on Saturday. Alexandria Anttila (Antioch, Ill./Antioch Community), Elyse Graziano (Floral Park, N.Y./Sacred Heart Academy), Madeleine Giaquinto (Falls Church, Va./Bishop O'Connell), Rachel Nersesian (San Leandro, Calif./Bishop O'Dowd) and Hannah Slovacek (Austin, Texas/Westlake) will all be graduating from the Hilltop this spring.
Graziano is batting .400 in the team’s 17 conference games, which ranks seventh, and is tied for first with seven stolen bases.
In 51.2 conference innings, junior Megan Hyson (Pasadena, Md./Chesapeake) has recorded 56 strikeouts. Fellow junior Lauren O'Leary (La Canada, Calif./La Canada) has logged 68.0 innings against BIG EAST opponents with 50 strikeouts. On the year, Hyson is limiting her opponents to a .208 batting average across 151.2 innings with a 2.58 earned run average. O’Leary has clocked 133.1 innings with a 3.62 earned run average.
The Hoyas split a pair of conference games at Providence last weekend, tying the squad with a 9-8 mark in conference play with two other teams.
Heading into the final week of BIG EAST play, five teams are fighting for the final three spots in the conference championship. DePaul clinched the No. 1 seed with an undefeated, 16-0 record while Georgetown (9-8), St. John’s (9-8), Butler (9-8), Seton Hall (9-9) and Creighton (7-10) remain in the hunt.
Two wins this weekend and two losses from either Butler or St. John’s would not only secure the Hoyas a place in the BIG EAST Championship, but also its first winning record in program history.
Seton Hall comes into the weekend having lost a home series against Butler last weekend. The Pirates managed a 7-6 victory in ten innings last Saturday.
The Pirates have five players with at least 37 hits on the season and a minimum of a .295 average. Danielle DeStaso has thrown 107.2 innings in the circle for Seton Hall to lead the way for the pitching staff while three other players have 66.0, 62.2, and 49.2 innings a piece.
