Eagle Softball drops two vs. Colorado Christian University

Due to snowy conditions, one Thursday and one Friday afternoon game was canceled against the Colorado Christian Cougars, who are ranked second in the RMAC.
On Saturday, the weather was good enough to be played and the Cougars came away with two wins against the Eagles.
In the first game, the Eagles fell to the Cougars by a score of 7-0. Despite the loss, Jessica Jarecki, (22), sophomore pitcher from Littleton, Colorado, pitched six strikeouts over four innings, but was also charged with the loss.
In the second and fifth innings, the Cougars were able to score three runs. They would score one final run in the seventh inning. This impressive performance was too much for the Eagles and their slow-starting offense to handle.
During the second game of the afternoon, the Eagles were able to keep the game close, but lost 3-6.
After a strong sixth inning finish, the Eagles were able to tie the game 3-3. However, a three-run finale by the Cougars in the seventh inning proved to be too much for the Eagles to overcome.
Allie Mason, sophomore of Loveland, Colorado and Bailynn Meek, freshman of Orangeville, California, both batted home a run in the sixth inning.
After the weekend, the Eagles currently have a conference record of 9-12 and 11-20 overall while sitting at the eighth spot in the RMAC.
The Cougars have a conference record of 20-1 and 29-3, which is good enough for the second overall spot in the RMAC.
The Eagles will travel to take on MSU Denver in a matchup this coming weekend. MSU Denver has a conference record of 14-10, sitting in the fourth spot of the RMAC.
