UCCS, New Mexico Highlands Split Doubleheader
Despite big games by Sarah Brisky and Stacy Haney, the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs softball team had to settle for a doubleheader split Saturday afternoon with the New Mexico Highlands Cowgirls at Las Vegas, N.M.
Brisky had five RBIs in the opener as the Mountain Lions (6-3, 1-1 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference) won 13-2 in five innings. Haney's two home runs and three RBIs weren't enough in the nightcap, though, as the Cowgirls (5-3, 1-1 RMAC) won 8-7.
Libby White (4-1) scattered seven hits in Game 1. Brianna Workman had three of UCCS' eight stolen bases in the game.
In Game 2, the Mountain Lions quickly fell behind 5-1, but three runs in the third inning and three more in the fifth gave UCCS a 7-5 lead. New Mexico Highlands, however, rallied for three runs in the bottom of the seventh to get the win.
Stacy Ortiz (1-1) took the loss.
Brisky was a combined 4-for-8 with seven RBIs on the day. Haney went 5-for-8 with four RBIs. Also coming up big with the bat were Lindsay Shandera (3-for-6, four RBIs) and Tasha Pagdilao (3-for-6, two RBIs).
The teams will meet again Sunday. The first game will be at 11 a.m. and the second at 1 p.m.
