Softball seven game losing streak broken against Seton Hall
Entering their April 16 matchup with Towson University, it was fair to say that something was a little off for the Drexel university softball team. They seemed to be just on the precipice of making a strong run through the start of CAA play, but had been unable to put together a complete performance of stellar pitching supported by a productive offensive day at the plate. Unfortunately for the team, the unseasonable snow that wafted down may have been an ominous sign of things to come, perhaps an indication of the temperature of the offensive attack for the Dragons in their next four games.

In a sport where seasonal weather forces training and offseason practice inside, the transition from simulated conditions to actual gameplay can be a difficult one. This seemed to be the case for the Drexel University softball team, who struggled to an 0-3 start in early February, a stretch during which they only managed one run. But the Dragons showed their savvy by rebounding and finding their timing. The result: a whopping 20 runs in the next two games, and they haven’t looked back since.
