Maryland softball completed a 5-0 stretch this past weekend at the Pirate Invitational in Greenville, North Carolina. Maryland defeated Saint Joseph’s twice, East Carolina twice and Monmouth once.

The Terps outscored their opponents 38-2 over the five games, pitching four shutouts. With the perfect weekend, Maryland moved to 15-4 on the season.

Maryland’s pitching staff, which has been terrific all season, dominated once again. The Terps’ pitchers combined to pitch 35 straight scoreless innings.

Pitcher Courtney Wyche led the way for the Terps with an excellent pitching performance on Sunday. She pitched six innings and tossed seven strikeouts.

Maryland is on a six-game win streak and will take the road again this weekend for its last away tournament of the season at the Liberty Tournament in Lynchburg, Virginia. Maryland opens the tournament with a matchup with Fairfield on Friday at 3 p.m.
