Softball sweeps St. Catherine, claims MIAC title

No. 2-ranked Tommie Softball posted 22 hits on the day and posted a 4-2, 9-3 sweep of second-place St. Catherine in Saturday's MIAC doubleheader at South Field.

St. Thomas secured the program's 18th MIAC championship in 20 seasons, and the seniors made it 4-for-4 in league crowns. The Purple locked up the playoff's top seed and will play host to the four-team conference playoffs May 3-5.

The Tommies (35-5 overall, 19-3 MIAC) have won 20 of their last 21 games. They improved to 8-2 at home this season after a 16-0 home-field run in 2018.

 

UST 4, SCU 2

Kierstin Anderson-Glass (18-3) allowed two runs, eight hits and no walks with six strikeouts in a complete-game win, and had an RBI single for an insurance run.

Dana Connelly's two-out, two-run single in the third inning put the Purple ahead to stay.

Over her last 36 innings of pitching, Anderson-Glass has allowed just two runs and no walks with 35 strikeouts.

Melissa Barry had three hits and Connelly drove in three runs to lead a 13-hit attack as the Tommies completed a sweep. The two through five hitters in the lineup for St. Thomas had nine of the 13 hits.

Chase Shortly, Izzy Marketon, Elise Barnes and Connelly each had two hits. 

Marketon took a complete-game pitching win and added an RBI double at the plate.
