CONWAY, SC – Senior Delany DeMello (Roseville, CA/Roseville) went 3-for-4, but the Rider University softball team fell to the University of North Carolina Greensboro, 6-0, and the University of Missouri-Kansas City, 8-0, Saturday on Day 2 of the Battle at the Beach, hosted by Coastal Carolina. With the losses, the Broncs slip to 0-4, while the Spartans improve to 4-3 and the Kangaroos are now 2-5.  

DeMello went 2-for-2 against the Spartans, while Toni Nino (Adelanto, CA/Silverado), Gabby Bram (Jackson, NJ/Red Bank Catholic) and Josettee Spencer (Hillsborough, NJ/Hillsborough) also added a hit apiece. The Spartans scored two each in the second and third innings, while adding single runs in the fourth and sixth to secure the 6-0 win. 

Against the Kangaroos, DeMello, Elyse Cuttic (Easton, PA/Bethlehem Catholic) and Alexa Feliciano (Thousand Oaks, CA/Oak Park) added a hit apiece. UMKC built a 5-0 lead through four and walked off with a three-run bottom of the fifth. 

QUOTES
“Much better outing. We adjusted at the plate and had some quality at bats. Now we need to string together some of those hits and turn them into runs.  Delany DeMello had a day, both at the plate and on the mound.” - Rider Head Coach Jaclyn Timko
