This weekend, the Cornell softball team traveled to Dover, D.E. to compete in the Sean Savage Memorial Tournament for Epilepsy Awareness. The Red went 1-3, splitting a pair with Central Connecticut and dropping a doubleheader to the host, Delaware State.

The Red opened play on Saturday with a pitcher’s duel, culminating in a total of 10 hits from both teams combined. In the circle for Cornell was sophomore Meg Parker, who recorded seven strikeouts on the day. The game remained scoreless until the bottom of the sixth, when a Central Connecticut RBI single to center field dropped Parker to 3-4 on the year.
