ROCK HILL, S.C. (March 12, 2006) - The ETSU softball team suffered a 4-3 setback at the hands of UNC Wilmington on the final day of action at the Adidas/Winthrop Invitational.  Following a 3-2 performance on the weekend, the Lady Bucs stand at 7-16 overall.

           

Down 3-1, UNCW engineered a three-run seventh to clinch the victory and move to 15-11 on the season.  UNCW's comeback began with a Brittany Wilkins reaching on an error by ETSU hurler Brittney Lehrschall (Leland, N.C.).

 

Meghan Murray then cracked a double, followed by an RBI-single from Whitney Knudsen.  The Seahawks would get another run on a sac-fly from Ali Gardiner.  UNCW scored its final run of the inning on a double off the bat of Jennifer Bosely.
