SALEM, Va. – Hannah Vet (pictured) pitched her 10th shutout of the season as the West Virginia Wesleyan softball team earned a 2-0 victory over UVa.-Wise in the winner's bracket finals game today of the Mountain East Conference tournament at the Moyer Sports Complex.
Vet improved her record to 23-3 and she threw her 21st complete game allowing just five hits and one walk while striking out four.
UVa.-Wise put a runner at third base in three different innings but was never able to dent the scoreboard.
The win propelled Wesleyan into the MEC championship game tomorrow at 1 p.m.
It will be a rematch with UVa.-Wise who staved off elimination with a 3-1 victory over Shepherd in the loser's bracket final.
Wesleyan needs just one win in the double-elimination tournament for the championship while UVa.-Wise will have to defeat the Lady Bobcats twice for the MEC title.
Today's game was the first time the two teams have met this season as their regular-season doubleheader was wiped out by the weather and was not made up.
