Softball Drops Doubleheader at Spalding; Returns Home March 30

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Spalding University relied on a strong offensive performance to sweep a softball doubleheader from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology on Saturday.

In the opener, Spalding scored five runs in the first and four in the third to claim a 10-0 victory.  Emily Struble had Rose-Hulman's lone hit and allowed just two earned runs with five strikeouts in a complete-game pitching effort.

In the nightcap, Hannah Bach led the Rose-Hulman offense with a two-run home run.  Jessica Thuer added a double to help the Fightin' Engineer offense.

Spalding relied on an eight-run first inning to jump out ahead of the Engineers and improve to 11-2 on the season.

Rose-Hulman stands 2-8 overall and hosts Bluffton in a doubleheader on Saturday at noon.
