Eagles lose two of three

The Eagles women’s softball team keeps sliding out. The athletes played a triple header Saturday at home against CSU-Pueblo, pulling out only one victory. Losing two games with scores of 16-12 and 10-2 and, only one winning one game with a score of 15-7, the Eagles are third from last in the RMAC with a record of 12-21 and a 15-29 overall.

A notable performance was given by Katie Londo, sophomore of Colorado Springs, Colo., going 4-for-8 at the plate during the three games, scoring six runs, and driving in four more. Londo hit her sixteenth triple of the season, which is just three shy of the school record. Londo also produced an impressive 1.000 slugging percentage for the weekend.

On a different note, several players were honored by academic awards. The standout name is Angela Jay, senior of Victoria, British Columbia, who was named First Team All-Academic for the RMAC. She maintains a GPA of 3.89, studying physical education and health and also starting every game in her CSC career.

Other athletes awarded were Nikki Ritzen, junior of Chadron, and Stephanie Townsend, senior of Roosevelt, Utah. Amy Schartz, junior of Brady, and Katelyn McBeth, senior of Surrey, British Columbia achieved the Honor Roll.

Since this is the last week of their season, the Eagles head on the road to play a double header at 3 p.m. today in Spearfish, S.D. against Black Hills State. The players return home this weekend to host a double header both Saturday April 21 and Sunday April 22 against Metro State starting at noon and 11 a.m., respectively.
