Softball loses to Cornell, but defeats UW-La Crosse
ROCHESTER, Minn. - After going 1-1 against UW-Stout and Bethel one day prior, the Concordia University Wisconsin softball team had the same result on Sunday inside the Rochester Dome, splitting a pair of games against Cornell College and University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.
CUW (2-2) fell short against Cornell, losing 5-3, but took down La Crosse by a 6-2 margin, handing the Eagles (3-1) their first loss of the season.
Against Cornell, the Falcons collected eight hits, but couldn't cash in with runners in scoring position.
Freshman Jessica Liszka (Lindenhurst, Ill.) went 2-4 with one RBI and one run scored while sophomore Breanne Geipel (Hartland, Wis.) went 1-3 with a solo HR.
The Falcons bounced back in the second game of the day, however, exploding for five runs in the second inning and never looking back.
Sophomore pitcher Jamie Schuh (Freedom, Wis.) threw a complete game, allowing only two runs on six hits. Schuh also recorded six strikeouts.
At the plate, freshman Sara Skarda (Pleasant Prairie, Wis.) went 2-3 with one RBI and one run scored.
The Falcons will now have three weeks of practice before they head to Clermont, Florida on March 17. They are scheduled to play 10 games in five days in the Sunshine State.
