Senior first baseman Jenn Mullikin (Greenwood, Indiana) went 3-for-4 with a double, two runs scored, and three RBIs in the victory over Georgian Court. Sophomore rightfielder Lacey Ligmanowski (Homer Glen, Illinois) and senior catcher Lisa Anderson (Chesterton, Indiana) also tallied three RBIs in the victory.

Saint Rose 3, Southern Indiana 0: Box Score

Saint Rose scored twice in the top of the sixth inning and once more in the seventh and held the Eagles to just three hits en route to a 3-0 victory over USI.

Wood (1-2) pitched effectively as she scattered eight hits throughout seven inning, but was charged with the setback after giving up three runs, two earned.

A lead-off single, followed by a walk two batters later got Wood into trouble in the sixth inning as Saint Rose capitalized to plate the first two runs of the game. Saint Rose took advantage of three errors in the seventh to score the third run.

Southern Indiana 14, Georgian Court 1: Box Score

After spotting their opposition a 1-0 lead in the first inning, the Eagles exploded for nine runs in the top of the third and five more in the fourth en route to a 14-1 shellacking of Georgian Court.

USI racked up 15 hits in the victory and had three players record three RBIs. In addition to getting the trifecta of RBIs from Mullikin, Anderson, and Ligmanowski, the Eagles got two RBIs out of junior catcher Courtney Bates (Newburgh, Indiana) as well as an RBI from junior third baseman Kristin Eickholt (Van Wert, Ohio) and senior leftfielder Nikki Nichols (Henderson, Kentucky).
