Softball Captures Program's First CAA Crown

Monday, May 16, 2022

Powered by an eight-run fifth inning, highlighted by a grand slam off the bat of Mary Sobataka, the third-seeded UNCW softball team won its first Colonial Athletic Association Championship with a convincing 10-2 win over fourth-seeded Elon at Hunt Softball Park on Saturday.

Sobataka's second career grand slam was one of a season-high three home runs hit by the Seahawks, 32-13, who advance to their first NCAA Regional. The Phoenix, who won two elimination games on Friday, dropped to 30-22 overall.
