FARMINGTON — University of Maine at Farmington pitcher Courtney Fowler gave Beaver softball faithful something to look forward to next season when the talented sophomore hurled a 1-0 win over Castleton, Saturday afternoon at Prescott Field.

Castleton, a perennial powerhouse in the North Atlantic Conference, found Fowler’s fastball nearly untouchable throughout the seven-inning game. Fowler allowed five hits and struck out four in etching the win.

“Our defense was outstanding,” Fowler said. “I’ve started to throw with consistency and am getting into a rhythm with my pitches which has really helped.”

UMF finished the season at 5-23 with just a pair of rostered seniors, Hannah Lust and Jennifer Garrard, in the lineup.

Fowler and junior teammate Emily Vitone paced the Beavers’ pitching staff with two wins each.

Sunday, UMF lost a doubleheader to Bates College, 6-3, 13-3 in a regular season finale.

Former Rangeley standout Jenney Abbott played first base for the Bobcats, collecting a pair of singles, along with two RBI in the second game.
