Softball Splits Saturday doubleheader with Albany

Stony Brook University’s softball team split a double header against Albany, winning the first game 1-0 and losing the second in a 9-1 romp to bring their overall record to 24-14-1.

Senior shortstop Vicki Kavitsky became just the fifth player in the history of Stony Brook’s softball program to record 200 career hits when she singled to left field in the seventh inning.

Kavitsky is batting .388 with a .486 on base percentage in her senior season.

Senior Alyssa Struzenberg (Cooper City, Florida)  allowed just four hits while striking out seven in the game one victory.

Struzenberg got her team-leading 16th win on the season and lowering her earned run average to a miniscule 1.64.

In game two, four Stony Brook errors destroyed any hope of the Seawolves earning their eighth conference win of the season.

Stony Brook out-hit Albany, 10-9, but failed to capture the big hit that would have started them scoring.

Albany, on the other hand, coupled a three-run homerun in the third and a solo shot in the sixth, combined with sloppy Seawolves play, to keep runs crossing the plate, giving Albany the victory in game two.

What would have been the rubber match on Sunday was cancelled due to poor field conditions caused by overnight rains. The game has yet to be rescheduled. The Seawolves move on to play Sacred Heart on Wednesday.
