Penn women’s softball suffered two narrow defeats Wednesday afternoon in a doubleheader at Lehigh, as the Mountain Hawks scored in just two innings in the two games. Meanwhile, Lehigh’s pitching held Penn scoreless, leading the team to 3-0 and 2-0 victories over the Quakers.
After going down early and often in their first five games, the Quakers went on a six-game winning streak, which included a win over Sacred Heart, a team that had qualified for last year’s NCAA tournament.
The Red and Blue showcased their new stadium this weekend when they hosted the Rocci Pignoli Memorial City Six Championship. The local Division I tournament included neighboring Drexel, La Salle, Saint Joseph’s, Temple and Villanova.
Looking to avenge a 7-5 loss to Villanova (13-18-1) Wednesday afternoon, Penn took the Wildcats eight innings to a 2-2 tie in the back-end of a double header before the umpires called off the remainder of the late game.
