KINGSTON, R.I. - Rhode Island's season came to an end without a game, as Sunday's series finale against Fordham was canceled due to poor weather conditions.

The Rams finish the season with a record of 17-29, including a 6-14 mark in Atlantic 10 play. The win total is a five-game improvement overall from last season, and a three-game improvement in conference play.

Along the way, Rhode Island had one of its best offensive seasons in program history. As a team, the Rams set program records in slugging percentage (.398), on-base percentage (.341) and home runs (33). Rhody also drew 139 walks, the second most in team history.

Individually, freshman Ari Castillo hit .392, the third-highest single-season batting average in team history. It was the highest average by any Rhode Island player since Kellie Cookus hit a program-record .437 in 1998.

Senior pitcher Becca Rogers ended her career tied for second in program history with 370 stikeouts. She also was second in lowest opponent batting average at .257.
