ATLANTA, Ga. - A dominant offensive performance and stellar pitching was the recipe for success for the University of Notre Dame softball team on Sunday, as the Irish tied a season-high in runs scored with an impressive 12-0 victory in five innings over Georgia Tech at Mewborn Field. Notre Dame earned its second win of the weekend against the Yellow Jackets, officially claiming its first Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) series.
"I was really happy with the way we came back after a really tough loss Saturday," Notre Dame head coach Deanna Gumpf said. "When you have a game where everything goes against you and nothing goes right, it's really easy to get in your own head and start questioning things. I love the way we bounced back, left it all on the field, and showed everyone that we are here to compete, and we're going to keep competing."
Senior pitcher Laura Winter (11-2) won her second game of the weekend, spinning a three-hit shutout while walking one and striking out seven. The Irish hurler surrendered only five hits in 12 innings during the series, striking out 19 Georgia Tech batters while not allowing any runs.
