Lady Charger pitcher Kaitlyn Weber gave up just 2 hits and 3 walks in the loss.
Weber also led the Lady Charger offense with 2 hits, including a double over the center fielder’s head in the second inning. Weber scored on a bunt by Abigail “CM” Foster.
Avis Keeling got the only other Lady Charger hit, which came in the top of the third inning.
Tambria Wake made several fine defensive plays at first base.
West Point’s offense was aided by a walk and an error.
