White will start for Owls

Junior Brooklin White will get the nod on the mound today for the Owls.

The eldest member of the pitching staff continues her fight for the second slot in the rotation against Charlotte (14-11, 2-1 Atlantic 10 Conference). White boasts a 2-5 record in nine appearances with an 8.16 earned run average, which ranks third on the team.

In 34.1 innings of work her walks and hits per innings pitched is 2.40 while striking out just 11, last on the team with more than 20 innings of work.

The Owls (11-14, 2-1 A-10) are looking to sweep their two game series with the 49ers after knocking four homeruns in a 9-7 victory Thursday. Another win would push the Owls over Charlotte in the standings and in the top quarter overall.

The first pitch is set for 3 p.m. in Ambler.
