GREENSBORO - Errors and the bat of Olivia Poplin helped UNC Wilmington sweep North Carolina A&T in a softball doubleheader at the Lady Aggies Softball Complex on Wednesday. The Seahawks defeated the Aggies 12-0 in the first game and 14-3 in the second.

Poplin went 2-for-2 with a double, three RBI and two runs scored in Game 1. In the second game, she had an additional two RBI, a double and scored a run. Poplin and the Seahawks were aided by six A&T errors in Game 2. Five of those errors came in a 10-run third inning.

The Aggies (1-9) did get on the board in the second contest. After eight consecutive scoreless innings by Seahawks pitching, Sophomore Zabresha Blakeney's RBI sacrifice fly to right scored Tiffany Macklin from third in the fourth inning. A&T picked up two more runs in the fifth as Detavia Keenan reached on an error by UNCW shortstop Camry Wagner.

She moved to second on an Alejandra Barcenas groundout, and eventually moved to third on a wild pitch by reliever Darian Roberts. Junior Sabrina Edmonds put runners at first and third with a walk, which was followed by a Jax Woodard groundout that scored Keenan from third.

Freshman Alexiss Dominguez then picked up the Aggies only extra base hit of the day when she doubled to right center to score Edmonds for the Aggies' third run of the day. The game would end on a Macklin strikeout.  KC Shue also had a combined five RBI for the Seahawks (8-11).

Casey Rowland (7-6) picked up the win in Game 1, while senior Ashira Dobison (0-5) took the loss. Jordyn Schmidt (6-3) was the Game 2 winner, while freshman Janika May (1-4) was the losing pitcher. The Aggies will open up play in the Winthrop Invitational on Friday when they face Western Illinois in Rock Hill, S.C., at noon.  The Aggies will also face Kent State, Harvard, Winthrop and Georgia this weekend.
