GREENSBORO, N.C. – Emily Kepple and Kiaya Jeusi had three hits each, while Jeusi and Jacki Gonzalez drove in three runs apiece as Hampton defeated future conference member N.C. A&T 15-4 in the softball season opener on Saturday.

Game two was stopped after three innings due to darkness and will not be finished.

Hampton jumped out to a 3-0 lead after four innings and then broke it open for a five-run fifth inning.  Jeusi drove in two with a single and Mo’ne Davis drove in two with a single to right.  Gonzalez sac bunt scored the fifth run to put Hampton up 8-0.
