The Bulls, in the Michele Smith Tournament in Clearwater, Florida, moved to 4-3 on the year overall, beating Hofstra but falling to James Madison in the second game of the day.
In the first game against Binghampton, the Bulls rolled to a 10 to victory, pushing the Bulls to 4-2 on the year.

In the second game against James Madison, the Bulls fell 5 to 0 as the offense could not get going in the night cap. The team managed just 5 hits as Juli Weber missed both games during the opening day (not sure what the issue is for her).
