Box Score

WATERVILLE, Maine - The Tufts University softball team won its third straight New England Small College Athletic Conference Softball Championship after taking a 4-1 win over Williams College in Game 7 of the tournament at Colby College's Crafts Field on Sunday.

For the first time in the three-year history of the double-elimination tourney, there was a deciding seventh game played. Williams forced the final game with a 2-1 win over Tufts in Game 6 earlier Sunday. The Jumbos (25-11) advance to play in the NCAA Division III Tournament. Williams finishes the season at 17-16.

Tufts only had three hits in the game and all came in the four-run fourth inning. With two players intentionally walked before her, junior Julie Fox (Willow Springs, Ill.) smacked a bases clearing double to give the Jumbos a 3-1 lead. Maggie McClory (Melrose, Mass.) added an RBI single that brought in Laura Spring (Sutton, Mass.), who was running for Fox. Williams had gone ahead 1-0 in the top of the fourth after Alana Frost (Oakland, Calif.) doubled and was brought in by an RBI single by Katherine Baldwin (Yantic, Conn.).

Tufts second baseman Deana Davidian (Pelham, N.Y.) did not have a hit in the game, but she did set a NESCAC tournament record with eight hits in the tourney.
