UW's Sunday Game At Campbell Cartier Classic Canceled
Feb. 21, 2010
SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The No. 1 Washington softball team's game on Sunday against Penn State has been canceled due to rain in San Diego. The game will not go down as an official contest as the teams completed just three innings.
The Huskies (7-1) and Nittany Lions were in a scoreless tie and heading into the top of the fourth when rain halted play. It was then decided that the remainder of play in the tournament would be canceled. A minimum of five innings must be completed for a game to be considered official.
Danielle Lawrie started the game in the circle for the Huskies and had struck out six of the first seven batters she faced. The Husky offense, meanwhile, had runners in scoring position in both the second and third innings, with freshman Shawna Wright ripping a two-out double in the second and sophomore Taylor Smith lining a one-out double down the left field line in the third, but the Huskies were unable to bring either runner around.
The Huskies had two of their five scheduled games in the tournament canceled due to inclement weather. They were also scheduled to play Western Kentucky Saturday morning but the game was called off early.
UW will head to the prestigious Cathedral City Classic in Palm Springs, Calif., next week where they will face a pair of ranked teams in No. 12 Oklahoma and No. 17 Fresno State. They will kick off the weekend on Thursday, Feb. 25 against BYU at 8:30 p.m.
