The Lady Flames concluded their fall campaign with a 4-2 record, posting wins over James Madison, Lynchburg College and Limestone.

The Lady Flames softball team wrapped up its Fall campaign last weekend, competing in a tournament at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Va. The Lady Flames went 2-2 in the tournament, defeating Limestone College twice and falling to Virginia Tech twice.

Earlier in the fall, Liberty hosted the Liberty Fall Softball Classic, picking up wins over Lynchburg College and James Madison.

"We are pleased with a 4-2 record this Fall," said Head Coach Paul Wetmore. "This gave our new players a look at NCAA regional participant JMU and an ACC powerhouse in Virginia Tech. We had the opportunity to see everyone play and now we can break down the things we need to work on. I am looking forward to a very good season."

Virginia Tech 12, Liberty 3

The Lady Flames were led by Jenny Law, who batted 2-for-3 with a RBI and a double, and Kaylee West, who went 1-for-3 at the plate with a RBI, a double and a run scored. Freshmen Katie Warrington and Kat Johnson shared time in the circle for Liberty.

Game 2

Danielle Howard and Ashley Bensinger led the Lady Flames offensively. Howard went 2-for-3 with a double and a run scored, while Bensinger blasted two doubles and brought in two runs in the victory.

The Lady Flames won the game in the final inning, when Bensinger's second double scored Amber DePasquale, who reached on an error by the Limestone shortstop.

Kelly Strickland batted 2-for-4 with two RBIs, while J'nae Jefferson was 1-for-4 with a triple and a RBI and West batted 2-for-4 and drove in a run.
