Rhode Island Welcomes George Mason to URI Softball Complex This Weekend

KINGSTON, R.I. – Rhode Island hosts George Mason for three Atlantic 10 contests this weekend, including a doubleheader Saturday afternoon.

The Rams and Patriots have met 13 times previously, with George Mason holding a 9-4 edge. This will be the fourth straight season the teams have faced each other, dating back to George Mason's arrival in the conference for the 2014 season.

The Patriots (13-24, 5-4 A-10) come into the weekend on a three-game winning streak. They won the series finale against Fordham on April 9 before sweeping a doubleheader against Hampton Wednesday.

Rhode Island (6-24, 3-8 A-10) is looking to snap a five-game losing skid. Three of the losses during the stretch have been by two runs or less.

NOTES

Senior Jenna Cubello recorded the 100th hit of her career during Wednesday's doubleheader against Massachusetts. She reached the milestone exactly one week after teammate Ali Summers notched her 100th hit at UMass Lowell… Summers is three walks away from 50 for her career. She would become the 11th player in program history – and the first since Kelly Cooker in 2013 – to reach the mark… Junior Kylie Shivery has 68 career runs batted in, leaving her just three shy of Rhode Island's top 10 list. With one more full season to go, she is 38 short of URI's all-time leader, Kellie Cookus (106 from 1996-98). Shivery had 37 RBI as a sophomore... Each of freshman Caileigh Holland's last five hits have been doubles.
