NEWPORT, R.I. - Salve Regina University athletics resumes its summer series with a daily flashback to the top five moments of 2016-17 for each of its 19 varsity sports. Beginning with Memorial Day (Monday, May 29, 2017) and finishing with the final day of August, 95 moments (19 x 5) will be shared to relive the most exciting happenings of the most recent Seahawk season.
Salve Regina University continued its mercy tradition in softball during the Seahawks' spring break trip to Florida with an 11-3 win in six innings over Saint Benedict (Sun., March 12) and 15-6 triumph in five innings against Smith (Mon., March 13). Sophomore outfielder Megan Guest (Meriden, Conn.) launched her first career home run, a two-run shot to centerfield, during a seven-run Seahawk uprising in the fifth against the Pioneers for the walk-off win.
