Macon, GA-The Salem College softball team was not able to finish their comeback and fell 5-3 today to Wesleyan in Great South action. Jennifer Vitarelli led the team as she went 2 for 4 with 1 run batted in. The weather caused a 75 minute delay, and the second game was postponed. The Spirits are now 15-12-2 overall and 1-2 in the GSAC, while Wesleyan is 13-18 and 3-2.
Wesleyan jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first. The pitching was strong from both teams until the 6th, when Wesleyan put 3 more runs on the board. Salem attempted a comeback in the last inning, but they were stopped at 3 runs.
Next weekend becomes huge for Salem in Great South action. They will now host Agnes Scott and Wesleyan as they try to take the Great South Regular Season title.
