Softball Sweeps Home Opening Series, Opens Conference Play in Sterling

The Lady Orediggers continued their February by winning all four games versus Southwest Minnesota at home and traveling to Sterling to engage in the first conference games of the season against Chadron State and UCCS. Mines won the SMSU games 8-6, 14-5, 9-5, and 12-7, and kicked off last weekend by beating Chadron 11-3 in six innings but losing to UCCS 6-5.

Softball continues to win

The No. 12 Colorado School of Mines softball team squared off against the CSU-Pueblo Thunder Wolves in game one of two on the day. The lady Orediggers took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the third inning when Elise Dugwyler scored on a wild pitch, but CSUP answered in the top of the fourth with a two run home run and tacked on four more unanswered runs in the fifth to take a 6-1 lead. Molly Thiebaut drove in a run in the sixth after Sami Springer and Cassie Ford had back-to-back singles.
