GREENSBORO – The North Carolina A&T softball team couldn’t find its rhythm on offense as it fell 3-0 to Elon in a non-conference game, Wednesday afternoon at the Lady Aggie Softball Complex.

It was a quiet game offensively for both teams as Elon (20-18-1) recorded five hits and held the Aggies (13-17) to only two.

Despite the loss, pitcher Janika May (6-8) tossed a complete game and tallied a game-high five strikeouts. Caitlin O’Shea (6-10) recorded her first shutout of the year and finished with two strikeouts.

The Phoenix put up a run in the second inning when Lauren Oldham doubled to left center field to drive in Aly Quintana who reached on a hit to left field. In the third inning, Ali Ford led off with a single to left field. After May struck out the next batter, Carleigh Nester reached on a fielder’s choice and a throwing error by freshman Charity Douglas allowed Ford to advance to second. A passed ball moved Ford and Nester to second and third as Emily Roper’s two-run single to left field gave Elon the 3-0 lead.

Senior Tiffany Macklin gave A&T its first hit of the game with a single to left field with two outs followed by senior Jax Kaye Woodard’s hit to center field. However the Aggies couldn’t manage to score the duo to close out the fourth inning.

A&T will visit Savannah State on Saturday, April 12 for a MEAC series.
