The Lady Rams will lose senior Lindsey Palmer to graduation as well as junior Alexa Carter who will be using her spring semester as intern hours, thus taking her off the mound for the Lady Rams. But this season the Lady Rams finished with a 10-26 record winning four games against Alice Lloyd College.


Danielle Furniss, a freshman from Lynchburg, Virginia tied her career record of nine strikeouts in a single game. This marks Furniss’ second time doing so this season, and the second time against Alice Lloyd College. Furniss also had a total of 18 strikeouts and was 4/4 at bat with five RBI’s against Alice Lloyd College. Furniss also broke a single game career record with 10 strikeouts versus West Virginia Tech.
