    RALEIGH, N.C. – The NC State softball team sent its seniors out on a high note as the Wolfpack collected a 6-1 win against Boston College on Saturday afternoon at Dail Stadium. State completes its 2014 home slate with a 22-3 record.

    “I thought we responded really well today after a tough day yesterday,” said head coach Shawn Rychcik. “We had a good game plan today and we executed it. We took advantage of a few pitches up in the zone and we were able to put some runs on the board.”

    The Wolfpack (29-13, 13-6 ACC) struck first in the contest with a run in the bottom of the second after an RBI single by junior Sara Lippard. Sophomore Hanna Sommer added to the Pack’s total the following inning with a solo homer to straight away center field, her fifth of the season to make the score 2-0.

    Junior Renada Davis drove in the third run of the contest on a single to center field as senior Scout Albertson scored from third base on the play to extend State’s lead to 4-0.

    In the bottom of the fifth, the Wolfpack went up 6-0 following back-to-back home runs from seniors Leah Jones and Chelsea Tate. Jones’ blast to left field was her sixth of the season and scored Sommer who singled prior to her at-bat. Tate smashed an 0-1 delivery over the left field fence for her seventh round-tripper of the season.



    Boston College (25-19, 9-11 ACC) plated its lone run of the contest in the top of the seventh after a leadoff single by Jessie Daulton and a sacrifice fly from Taylor Coroneos to plate Daulton from third base.

    Emily Weiman earned the win in the circle for the Pack to run her record to 24-10 on the season. She only allowed three hits in the contest, two of which came in the top of the seventh. The second hitter of the BC first recorded a bunt single and Weiman was in control from that point on.

    The junior hurler escaped a bases loaded jam in the top of the first after Boston College drew two walks and dropped down a bunt single. She forced BC’s cleanup hitter to ground into a fielder’s choice followed by a popout to shortstop and a swinging strikeout. She did not allow a base runner from the third to the sixth, retiring 13 straight during that span.

    “Emily [Weiman] escaping the bases loaded jam in the top of the first was a huge momentum shift for us,” Rychcik added. “The rest of the way she was really good and only gave up a few hits in the top of the seventh, so I was real happy with her performance.”

    State used a balanced offensive attack at the plate as Jones, Sommer, Tate and sophomore Lana Van Dyken each had two hits in the game. Davis and Lippard chipped in with a hit apiece.

    Albertson, Kirsty Grant, Jones, Hayley Stowe and Tate are the seniors that were recognized for their careers on Saturday.

    NC State will return to action on Tuesday, April 22 when it travels to Notre Dame for a midweek doubleheader. First pitch is slated for 3 p.m. with the second game to follow.
