The Bulls, 45-16, beat FAMU to start the day, 6 to 4, before falling 6 to 0 to South Carolina in the second game as the 2016 season came to an end for the Bulls. It was a tough day but overall, it was a great season. 

In the first game of the day, USF beat FAMU 6 to 4 to keep the season alive. In the 1st, USF went ahead 1 to 0 on a Lauren Evans RBI single. In the 2nd, Astin Donovan hit a sac fly to make it 2 to 0. Juli Weber then drove in a run and later scored on a ground out by Lee Ann Spivey to make it 4 to 0. In the 4th, Donovan hit a solo home run to put USF ahead 5 to 0. In the 5th, FAMU made it 5 to 2. In the 6th, Lauren Evans did it again with an RBI double to put USF ahead 6 to 2. In the 7th, FAMU scored 2 runs, but that would be it as the Bulls stayed alive and improved to 45-15 overall.

Astin Donovan was 2 for 3 with 2 RBIs overall and scored 2 runs. Juli Weber was 1 for 3 with an RBI and scored a run. Lauren Evans was 2 for 4 and drove in 2 total runs. Lee Ann Spivey was 2 for 3.

Cheyenne Eggens went 4 innings, allowing 3 hits, 1 runs and struck out 3 batters. Erica Nunn went 2.2 innings, allowing 2 hits, 2 runs, walking 2 and struck out 3 batters. Susan Wysocki went a third, allowing a hit, a run, and walked a batter.

In the second game against South Carolina, they fell 6 to 0 as the season began. USF was down 1 to 0 after the first. In the third, after errors, South Carolina extended the lead to 4 to 0 as the Bulls could not get anything once again. In the 4th, South Carolina struck again to move their lead to 5 to 0 and then 6 to 0. The Bulls just could not get anything going in this game to keep the year alive as they mustered 4 hits total.

Kristen Wyckoff was 2 for 2 overall in the game. Cassidy Boyle was 1 for 2 in the game, but the Bulls could not muster anything aside from those hitters. It was just a tough game.

Erica Nunn went 3.2 innings, allowing 3 hits, 6 runs, 3 walks and struck out 2 batters. Susan Wysocki went 1.1 innings, allowing 2 hits, and struck out 2 batters. Eggens went a clean inning in relief.

The season is over now, but it was one hell of a season for the Bulls. Conference champions, a 23-game win streak, a home run record, it was a great record for the Bulls. This was a tough day as the year ends, but I will have a full recap later this week for this program. The future is bright moving forward.
