The Stony Brook Softball team fell to 4-6 after winning two of its five games in the Florida Atlantic Tournament this weekend.
The Seawolves dropped the first three games of the tournament. Head coach Megan Bryant’s squad lost to Michigan State 7-0, fell against Florida Atlantic 6-1 and Boston University 4-0.
Stony Brook managed to end the trip on a high note, though, picking up wins over Columbia, 7-2, and Maryland, 10-4.
Senior Jane Sallen started three of the five games in the circle, and she also came in for relief in the final game of the series.
The ace allowed 16 runs, 13 of which were earned, on 25 hits over 20 2/3 innings of work. She struck out nine batters and walked seven. Senior Alex Petrolia and sophomore Maddy Neales also pitched over the weekend.
Petrolia made two appearances in the tournament — against Michigan State and Maryland — and threw three scoreless innings, allowing seven hits.
Neales got the nod against Boston University and Maryland, and her performance improved throughout the weekend.
Against the Terriers, the second-year pitcher allowed four runs across a complete game, racking up six strikeouts and six walks. But when she matched up with the Terrapins, she gave up three runs on three hits and picked up the win.
Senior center fielder Kellie Reynolds had a strong weekend, going 8-for-17 with two runs batted in, including three hits in six at-bats during the first two games. She had her best performance in the game against Columbia, when she was 3-for-4 with one run batted in and a run scored. Her batting average improved to .286 on the season.
Senior catcher Allie Pisciotta played at her usual high level, batting 6-for-17 with six runs batted in, three of which came on a home run to pad the Seawolves’ lead against the Terrapins. She has continued to be Stony Brook’s most effective player on both sides of the ball, batting .467 through 10 games. She still has not committed an error on defense.
Stony Brook will head to Fort Myers, Florida this weekend for the Florida Gulf Coast Tournament, where the team will take on Ball State, Florida Gulf Coast and Notre Dame.
The series starts Friday, March 4 at 2 p.m..
