Former Comets making waves on softball scene

SoVaNow.com / March 04, 2013
Two former Comet softball standouts are playing for nationally-ranked college squads.

Virginia Tech softball is now no. 23 nationally and 12-1 on the season after a 2-1 win over Elon Thursday. The Hokies return to action Tuesday against UNC Greensboro.

Former Comet Betty Rose is the catcher for this squad. Rose has been slowed by a recent injury and is hitting .143, and has missed recent action. She has a .976 fielding percentage.

Meanwhile, Roanoke College is off to a great start, with another former Comet, Stephanie Clark, in the lineup. Roanoke College is ranked fifth in the nation in Division III. The Maroons split a pair of contests Saturday, defeating Birmingham Southern, 7-3, before falling to no. 13 Emory University, 9-1, in five innings in Atlanta.

Roanoke College softball is 5-1 this season.

Clark has enjoyed a torrid start. She is batting .364, with two RBI and three runs scored in four games.
