FAU Goes 4-1 on Opening Weekend

BOCA RATON, FL (February 8, 2009) – The Florida Atlantic softball team defeated Long Island University 5-0 in the final game of the FAU Kick-Off Classic.

The game was a scoreless tie until the bottom of the fifth when Amy Bukovich (Boca Raton, FL/Olympic Heights HS) doubled in Ambar Jones (Pembroke Pines, FL/ Pembroke Pines Charter HS) and Jenna Schwarz (Boca Raton, FL/PBCC) to put the Owls up 2-0. FAU added three more runs in the sixth on a Schwarz RBI single and a two-run base hit by Ashlyn Parmerter (Winter Haven, FL/ Winter Haven ).

The Blackbirds’ best scoring threat came in the first inning when the first two runners reached, but Rose Gressley (Virginia Beach, VA/Green Run HS) was able to retire the next three batters without surrendering a run. Gressley went the distance for her fifth career shutout.

The Owls return to action on Friday, February 13 when they take on Georgia Tech as part of the Lipton Invitational, hosted by the University of Florida.
