Londo performed outstandingly again on Sunday’s first game, pounding out her ninth home run of the season for two runs, leading the Eagles to a victory early in the day. Despite the momentum, the ladies couldn’t keep the force going and lost to Mesa in the second due to some costly errors.

Following the weekend’s results, the CSC ladies now sit third from last in the standings with a 13-22 overall record and an 11-15 in the RMAC.

The Eagles go on the road this weekend to face Nebraska-Kearney in a double-header both Saturday April 6, starting at noon, and Sunday April 7, starting at 11 a.m.
