Freshman pitcher Julia Coulombe (Scottdale, Ariz./Chaparral) earned the victory, allowing three earned runs in seven innings.

In the opener, Fisher doubled as a part of a 3-for-4 outing while junior Kristy Bogusz (Chagrin Falls, Ohio/Cuyahoga Valley Christian) went 2-for-3 with a stolen base. Senior pitcher Sarah Smith (Columbus, Ohio/Upper Arlington) took the loss despite allowing just one earned run in six innings.
