Rams Stifled in 2-0 Loss to Charleston (W.Va.)


WINSTON-SALEM, NC – The Winston-Salem State Rams (0-7) could not find their way when the team took a 2-0 loss to the Charleston (W.Va) Golden Eagles (2-0), Friday afternoon. The Rams played some great defense in the game, but the team was stifled by a tremendous Golden Eagle pitching attack.

The Rams had a tough time getting their offense going in the hard-fought loss. As a team, the Rams managed just two hits in the loss and were held scoreless. WSSU senior designated player Samantha Gibbs and freshman leftfielder Nyla Howard each recorded a single in the game and were the only WSSU players to record hits in the game. The Rams struggled against the UC pitching with 12 strikeouts in the loss.

WSSU freshman Tia Robinson (0-4) led the pitching effort for the Rams with all seven innings of action and only two runs allowed (one earned). She also recorded a strikeout and two walks.

With the loss, the Rams fall to 0-7 on the season. The team will return to action, Tuesday when the team heads to Columbia, S.C. to take on the Benedict Tigers in a non-conference doubleheader at 1:00 p.m. for more information on Rams softball, contact the WSSU Office of Athletic Media Relations at (336) 750-2143 or log on to www.WSSURams.com.
