THE LEAD:
In their final day of action at the Fastpitch Dreams Spring Classic, Dean College dropped a heartbreaker in the first game then was shutout in the nightcap.

Game 1: Chatham University 4, Dean College 3
Unlike previous games, the Bulldogs got on the board first, scratching across a run on an RBI double by Karissa Menzinger (Centereach, N.Y.).

Dean then tacked on another run when Alexis Brown (Taunton, Mass.) scored on a passed ball in the third and then Courtney Holden (Bridgeport, Conn.) doubled and Michelle Sessa (Tewksbury, Mass.) scored on a subsequent error.

Unfortunately for the Bulldogs, the Cougars got two run doubles from Caitlin Worwood in the fourth and Alexis Gonzalez in the fifth to catapult them to the victory.

Brown had a big day at the plate for Dean, going 3-for-3 with a run scored.

Game 2: King's College (Pa.) 8, Dean College 0
Nicole Kirse yielded just one hit in five innings in the circle and the Lions posted an 8-0 win over the Bulldogs.

King's got all the offense they would need in the first when they scored three runs highlighted by a Samantha Bloom triple to right center.

Another triple – a bases-clearing three-run to right center by Brittany McNair was another huge offensive strike for the Lions in the third that helped push them to the five inning win.

Karissa Menzinger (Centereach, N.Y.) had a leadoff single to center in the second for the Bulldogs' lone hit.

UP NEXT:
The Bulldogs will wrap up their trip with a twinbill at William Peace University on Thursday afternoon beginning at 1:00 PM.
