        Your Lady Maroons (6-5, ODAC 1-3) dominated both New Paltz with a 15-11 win and MIT with a 21-12 win to bring their record from 4-3 to 6-3. The team had close losses to both Lynchburg and Randolph-Macon. They take the field again at 7 p.m. this Friday, April 6 at Bridgewater.


        Due to inclement weather, RC softball had to postpone their double-header at Guilford. In the meantime, they swept Southern Virginia and split with Eastern Mennonite, bringing their record from (11-9, 0-0 ODAC) to (14-10, 1-1 ODAC). The team finished their week with two wins against Guilford, two losses to Virginia Wesleyan and another sweep against Bridgewater this past Wednesday, bringing their record to (18-12, 5-3 ODAC). Their next games are at Randolph this Tuesday, April 10 at 3 p.m. and 5 p.m.
