UCCS, New Mexico Highlands Split Doubleheader

By Doug Fitzgerald published February 17, 2007

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.
