The Austin College softball team continued its spring break trip in Florida with a win over SUNY Potsdam and a loss to Wesleyan University on Tuesday. The 'Roos are now 9-9 overall this season as they head into their final two spring break games on Wednesday.
Against Potsdam, the 'Roos got a strong pitching performance from Tori Herrera, who tossed a complete game and struck out eight batters while surrendering just one unearned run on seven hits. Lauren Mara went 2-for-3 with a triple, and Raquel Vara added an RBI triple in the victory.
The 'Roos plated one run in the first and another in the third, and after Potsdam got a run across in the fourth, Austin College responded with two runs in the bottom half of the inning to go ahead 4-1.
In the second game of the day against Wesleyan, the 'Roos fell behind 3-0 after the first inning before scoring twice in the second on a two-run double from Kylee Fowler to make it a 3-2 game. However, that's the last time the 'Roos would get on the board and Wesleyan would take advantage of seven Austin College errors to hand the 'Roos the six run loss.
