Fairfield, Conn. – The Robert Morris University softball team cruised to a win in the opening game of its Northeast Conference (NEC) doubleheader against Sacred Heart and jumped out to a lead in the nightcap, but the Colonials were unable to hold on and complete the sweep on a mostly sunny Sunday afternoon at Pioneer Park.
RMU won the opener, 5-1, before dropping the nightcap, 4-3.
Junior Nicole Sleith spun a beauty in the opener as she earned the complete game win in the circle. The Yough graduate allowed just five hits and one unearned run while striking out four without walking or hitting a batter. Sleith, who is undefeated in her last six starts, was incredibly efficient as she threw 55 of her 74 pitches for strikes.
