TEAM NPF takes doubleheader versus UNC and NC State Softball


Oct. 15, 2011


RALEIGH, N.C. - NC State softball played host to Team NPF, a group of all-stars from the National Pro Fastpitch league, today at Curtis and Jacqueline Dail Softball Stadium. Team NPF disposed of North Carolina 5-0 in the opening game of the doubleheader, then defeated the Pack 6-0 in the second game.

Freshman pitcher Emily Weiman posted an impressive game against Team NPF, surrendering only two earned runs in six innings of work. Renada Davis notched the only Wolfpack hit of the game, smashing a shot in the sixth inning.

Weiman took the circle for the Pack in the first, inducing a fly ball from NPF leadoff hitter Megan Wiggins. Team NPF then clubbed three-straight infield hits and jumped in front of the Pack 3-0.

Team NPF again rattled off two-straight base hits in the second, but Weiman was able to shut down their attack, surrendering only one unearned run in the frame. After two innings, team NPF owned a 4-0 lead over the Wolfpack.

Weiman settled in after the first two innings, giving up only two hits over the next four frames. The Pack offense struggled against NPF all-star Jamee Juarez, a four-time All-Big Ten selection at Ohio State in her fifth professional season. The squad made solid contact, but was unable to find holes in the defense through the first five innings.

Davis got the NC State offense going in the bottom of the sixth inning by roping a single, then advancing to second on an outfield error by Team NPF. Juarez was able to retire the next two Wolfpack batters, however, preserving the 4-0 NPF lead after six frames.

Senior pitcher Morgan Peeler came in for the Pack in the seventh inning and surrendered two unearned runs off of one hit. Heading into the bottom half of the seventh inning, Team NPF held a 6-0 lead over NC State.

Juarez retired Toni Ann Williford and Landon Warren to begin the bottom of the seventh, but Bethaney Wells drew a two-out walk to keep the Wolfpack alive.  The next Pack hitter, Scout Albertson, was retired to end the game.

Wolfpack softball begins its regular season in February, so stay tuned to for updates and information on the upcoming year.
