Sophomore superstar Morgan Comfort has continued to do it all for the Ursinus Softball Team.

Comfort somehow has improved at the plate from her .299/.344/.479 freshman year performance, hitting .407/.507/.574 so far in her sophomore campaign. That is *checks notes* bonkers.

She’s also been a stud on the mound as a pitcher the last two seasons, currently twirling a 2.93 ERA in 10 appearances so far.

This past Saturday, though, Comfort showed more than talent during the softball team’s sweep of Gettysburg. She showed a ton of guts on the mound, working through a couple of sticky situations.

Gettysburg got out to a quick 1-0 lead on a lead off homer and a double to open the game. Comfort also was in a tough spot in the 6th after a lead off walk and a passed ball to get the runner to third. Comfort found a way to escape both spots, not allowing a run to score in that nerve-wracking sixth inning to hold on to a 2-1 lead.
