Boiling Springs, N.C. – The Presbyterian College softball team dropped the rubber game of their series against Gardner-Webb on Sunday afternoon, 12-4. The Blue Hose are now 11-34-2 on the season, 1-17 in Big South play.
Courtney White scored the first run of the game for the Blue Hose with a solo shot in the fourth. The home run was her third of the season.

White led the team with a pair of hits in the contest.
