CSC softball splits weekend series with Pueblo

Over the weekend, the women’s softball team traveled to Pueblo, Colorado to take on the ThunderWolves. On Saturday, the Eagles defeated the ThunderWolves by a score of 7-4.
Pueblo led 2-0 early on, but CSC was able to establish an offensive charge in the fifth and sixth innings. Angelica Maples, sophomore of Olivehurst, California, and Bailynn Meek, a freshman of Orangeville, California, both were able to hit a two-run homer. Pitcher Jessica Jarecki, sophomore of Littleton, Colorado, earned her fourth win of the season.
Following the first game, the ThunderWolves defeated the Eagles 4-3 on a walk-off in the seventh inning. Pueblo took the early lead after scoring one run in the second inning. CSC eventually tied the game 3-3 after the fifth inning. Unfortunately, the Eagles saw a single home walk-off that sealed the victory for the Thunderwolves.
On Sunday, the Eagles earned their second victory against CSU-Pueblo in game three of the series. As a designated player, Meek put the first point on the board with an RBI at the top of the first inning. The Thunderwolves tied the game up 1-1 at the bottom of the second inning. However, a strong finish by the Eagles in the fifth and sixth innings allowed for CSC to walk away with the 4-1 victory in game three.
In the fourth and final game of the series, CSU-Pueblo once again came back strong. The ThunderWolves started off fast with a 3-0 lead over the Eagles in the first inning. The Eagles scored the ironly run in the third inning. CSU-Pueblo scored their final run in the fifth inning. After seven innings of action, CSU-Pueblo came away with the victory 4-1.
After splitting the series 2-2, the Eagles now sit at the ninth spot in the RMAC with a 6-9 conference record. Next weekend, the Eagles will travel to Spearfish, South Dakota to take on rival Black Hills State University, who currently sit in the eighth spot with a 5-7 conference record.
