TUCSON, Ariz. – The Carleton College softball team concluded its Spring Break trip on Friday, dropping a pair of games. The Knights lost 10-1 to Whitworth University, then were shutout 9-0 by St. Gregory’s University.
Jenny Ramey (So./Cottage Grove, Minn./New Life Academy) started the day in fine fashion with a leadoff triple. Kelsey Parsons (Jr./Golden Valley, Minn./Hopkins) brought her home with a sacrifice bunt. All four Carleton (1-13) hits went for extra bases, but that ended up being Carleton’s lone tally of the day.
Whitworth (14-15) scored five times in the bottom of the first, twice in both the second and third frames, and closed the scoring with another run in the fourth.
In game two, St. Gregory (28-3) plated single runs in the first and second innings then pulled away with a four-run fourth followed by three more runs in the fifth.
Carleton returns home and will travel to Bethany Lutheran College for a doubleheader on Monday, March 26.
