FT. MYERS, Fla. -- Franklin & Marshall's softball team dropped both halves of Thursday's competition in Florida. The Diplomats fell 2-1 to Western New England in the first game. Wisconsin-Superior lived up to its name with a 10-2 win in the second contest. F&M fell to 9-5 with the losses.
Sarah Damato tossed her second complete game of the season, but was saddled with a loss in the defensive struggle with WNEC. Jessika Mancino had half of F&M's four hits and an RBI.
The Diplomats got sloppy in the nightcap, lighting the board with several costly errors. Caitlin Elfring and Gina Camuso each had a pair of hits. Mancino and Camuso drove in the Diplomats' runs.
The losses ended F&M's southern swing. The Diplomats will open Centennial Conference play on Sunday at Washington College.
