Wis. - After opening Northern Athletics Conference play
with two lopsided victories at home against Maranatha Baptist Bible
College on Tuesday, the Concordia University Wisconsin softball
team will hit the road for four more NAC matchups this weekend.
The Falcons will visit River Forest, Ill., on Saturday to play a doubleheader with Concordia University Chicago, before heading to Lisle, Ill., on Sunday for a pair of games against Benedictine University.
Both doubleheaders are scheduled to begin at 12 p.m., and CUC will be providing live stats for Saturday's games. BenU will also have live stats for the doubleheader on Sunday.
CUW (7-9, 2-0 NAC) will be hoping to build off the momentum generated from the two dominating wins against MBBC, in which it combined to outscore the Crusaders 18-0 in 10 total innings of play.
Sophomore Jamie Schuh (Freedom, Wis.) tossed a no-hitter in the second of the two games, allowing on two MBBC base runners while striking out 11. Senior Danielle Burke (Burlington, Wis.) was almost just as impressive in the circle during the first game, crafting a two-hit shutout while throwing 12 strikeouts.
At the plate, freshman Jessica Liszka (Lindenhurst, Ill.) has been on fire in the leadoff role, posting a red-hot .448 batting average while leading the team in hits (26), runs (13), and stolen bases (7). Senior Sarah Cochran (Bloomington, Ill.) has also been impressive, batting .345 to go with 19 hits, 12 runs scored, and nine RBI.
CUC (4-12, 2-0 NAC) swept a pair of games against Dominican University on Wednesday, beating the Stars by a combined 10-3 score. The Cougars are led by sophomore Taylor Golden, who is batting .389 and leads the team 18 runs scored, 13 RBI, and 13 walks drawn.
BenU (6-6, 2-0 NAC) is coming off two low-scoring wins against Aurora University on Wednesday, and will also play a doubleheader at MSOE on Saturday. Eagles pitcher Brittany Adcox leads the NAC with a 1.95 ERA, and has thrown a team-high 24 strikeouts in 43 innings of work.
