Syracuse softball had its home opener during the first warm spell of the spring, but Notre Dame spoiled the party handing the Orange back-to-back defeats Sunday.

Syracuse’s home opener was delayed a day due to travel problems by visiting Notre Dame. Following back-to-back losses at the hands of the Irish, the Orange are probably wishing it had been delayed a little longer.

On what started out as a gorgeous day Syracuse, the weather turned, becoming as bad as the play of the Orange. The two losses extended SU’s (24-10, 3-5) Big East losing streak to five games, while Notre Dame remained undefeated in conference play.

Syracuse won its opening game 23-0, then rode that winning wave throughout the weekend as they swept Rutgers and improved to 24-5 overall.

Following another successful weekend, Syracuse Softball is approaching an eight game winning streak which would tie for the longest streak in school history. SU (24-5, 3-0) swept Rutgers this past weekend to extend its winning ways.

Despite playing on the Scarlet Knight’s home turf, it was the Orange who dominated, as they demolished Rutgers, 23-0, in the opening game. Syracuse’s offense got off to a fast start by scoring four in the first inning and it never looked back.

The Syracuse softball team starts off it's season this weekend at the Georgia State Tournament. SU will also face Tennessee Tech and Morehead State during the two-day event.

The 2011 Syracuse University Women’s Softball team hopes that its impressive run at the end of last season will carry over to the beginning of this season, as all nine starters return. Hopes and expectations are extremely high for this veteran team, from the players themselves, fifth-year head coach Leigh Ross, and ESPN, who gave the Orange their first preseason votes for the Top 25 poll in six years.
