Softball Swept by NDC on the Road

April 8th, 2023 by WCBC Radio

The Frostburg State Softball team dropped their doubleheader road series the Notre Dame (OH) Falcons Saturday afternoon by scores of 7-3 and 3-1.

Action started early in game one for the Bobcats, as freshman Arden Miller singled to left field, then with two outs sophomore Jamie Roberts stepped into the box and sent one over the fence, bringing her and Miller across home plate for a 2-0 lead. NDC also got on the board in the first, however, with Katelyn DeWeese walking to first, Emma Gumont hitting a single up the middle and while DeWeese was rounding second looking to take third, Gumont followed behind her advancing to second. Ella Collinsworth reached on a fielder's choice while earning an RBI by sending DeWeese home.

FSU did not score again until the third inning when sophomore Laura Gilford scored an unearned run to go up 3-1. The Falcons responded yet again and took the lead in the third, scoring three runs. Danielle Fink scored after a single, stole second base, and advancing home on an error, then Collingsworth reached again on a fielder's choice and sent DeWeese home to even the game at 3-3. After Alexi Maciejowski was hit by a pitch, Collinsworth was in scoring position and advanced all the way home on a throw from the outfield to take the lead 4-3. In the bottom of the fourth, NDC's Kelly Troup and Fink would add to their score, putting the Falcons up 6-3 heading into the fifth. With a few RBIs already, Collinsworth filed out to right field on a sacrifice fly, sending Madison Olszewski home and scoring the last run of game one.


NDC was able to start off game two by being the first team to score, as Fink reached on a single, stole second base and scored on another Bobcat error, a pattern which repeated for DeWeese for a 2-0 Falcons lead. To start the third inning, Gilford connected well with the bat and hit an inside the park home run down the right field line to halve the deficit at 2-1. This game was tough as both pitchers were striking out batters left and right, with the next few innings being short and sweet, getting the game to the bottom of the sixth. The Falcons scored the last and final run of the day as Gumont homered to center field and FSU could not find a response in the top of the seventh, falling 3-1.


With the conclusion of the series, Frostburg falls to a record of 22-15 while Notre Dame College moves to a record of 21-15. The Bobcats are back on the road Wednesday, April 12 as they travel to Fairmont State in a doubleheader conference game set to begin at 2 p.m. For more information visit
