Eagles split with Mavericks

The Eagles had a decent outcome over the weekend against Colorado Mesa University, winning two of four games. Saturday, the ladies lost the first competition 12-6 to the Mavericks but, rallied to pull off a 4-2 victory in the second. On Sunday, the team repeated the performance by winning the first 5-3 only to lose 6-5 in the second.

Amy Schartz, junior of Brady, hit her fourth walk-off home run of the season to seal victory in the second game Sunday. Katie Londo, sophomore of Colorado Springs, Colo., got three hits in four at-bats, including a double and a home run, to drive in four runs in the first game Saturday.

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.
