So much for Southern hospitality.
Three weeks ago, the Harvard softball team was run out of Georgia faster than you could say "Pass the cornbread". The Crimson dropped all five of its games in that weekend's National Fastpitch Coaches' Association Leadoff Classic, and was outscored by its opponents 35-5.
This weekend, Harvard (2-6) hopes to redeem itself in the Peach State as it travels to Marietta, Ga. to participate in the Buzz Classic. The tourney begins a busy week of competition for the Crimson, who will play Virginia and Radford next Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively, before participating in a tournament at Virginia Tech next weekend.
Today, the Crimson face Maryland and Mercer in the opening rounds of the Buzz Classic.
Fresh off a two-game sweep of Georgia Tech on Tuesday, the Terrapins (14-13) are led by .
sophomore pitcher Amanda Bettkar (7-6, 1.54 ERA), who has allowed just 66 hits in 91 innings of work.
Mercer (14-14), meanwhile, has taken a nosedive recently after starting out the season with five straight wins. As of yesterday, the Bears had dropped 12 of their last 18 games.
For Harvard, junior ace Chelsea Thoke and sophomore hurler Suzanne Guy, who combined to start 30 of the Crimson's 38 games last season, will be heavily relied upon to quiet the bats of the opposition.
