Abby Pac struck out 10 in a three-hitter in the first game Saturday, after tossing a five-hit shutout two days earlier against St. Thomas. Taylor Boykin led the offense, going 3-for-4 with two triples, two RBIs, and two runs.

Canyon Crosby pitched a gem in the finale, striking out six in a three-hitter. Kaitlyn O’Hearn drove in the game’s only run with an RBI single in the sixth, while Kylie Kelly and Rachel Frankhouser each had two hits.
