While the Wolves fell 4-11 to the perennial Division 1 power, Sarah Brown went 3-4, Anna Borrazzo went 2-4 with three RBIs and she also struck out ten despite the loss. “Tough first game,” Coaches Lesage and Phalon agreed. “Plenty of time to critique and improve,” they added.
Two days later, they hosted North Country on a cold, dreary Friday afternoon. This game was much closer and a lower scoring affair, but the result was the same and the Wolves fell 4-3. Brianna Belisle went 2-4 with a solo home run. Borrazzo struck out fifteen and only gave up five hits. They were ahead until the very end of the game. Despite big hits and excellent pitching, South Burlington dropped the nail biter. Fortunately for the Wolves, the season is young. Their next game is at home against Rice on April 26.

The team bounced back on Friday with a 10-0 win over visiting North Country. An eight-run fifth inning blew up what had been a tight game, led by John Thibeault’s three hits and five solid innings from the pitcher’s mound. Other offensive contributors were Andrew Cunningham’s two run single and a three-run double from Connor McGrath.
The very next day, the offense continued to pour runs onto the scoreboard with a 13-3 win over visiting Spaulding. Once again, a late inning, run scoring breakout occurred and the Wolves used a six-run fifth inning to take control of the game. Cunningham, Premsager and Precourt (three RBIs) had two doubles each while McGrath and Seamus both had two hits, including one double a piece. The team hosts Rice on April 26.
