It was a historic day for the Pitt athletic department as the school’s softball team clinched the ACC Coastal Division Championship following a 9-8 win over Louisville.
Today’s win was the 15th conference win for the Panthers which tied North Carolina but because they hold the tiebreaker over the Tar Heels, the Panthers win their first ACC Division Championship in program history.
“Today was phenomenal for the girls,” said head coach Holly Aprile. “They had a lot of heart, a lot of focus and desire today and these girls left it all out on the field today. I couldn’t be prouder.”
Junior Sarah Dawson and senior Kayla Harris were on the mound today for Pitt. Dawson went six innings while Harris pitched the sixth inning and got the win. Dawson replaced her in the seventh inning to close out the Pitt win.
Offensively, senior McKayla Taylor, freshman Hunter Levesque and junior Gabrielle each collected two hits. Taylor hit a home run while Levesque collected 3 RBIs.
