Softball goes 3-1 on weekend tournament

After a shutout win Friday and back-to-back wins Saturday, the #25 Emporia State softball team finished the St. Cloud Indoor Tournament with a loss to Augustana College from South Dakota on Sunday.

The Hornets started the trip to Minnesota out with a shutout victory, 2-0, against host St. Cloud State. Kaitlyn Caston, junior pitcher, allowed only four hits and two walks in her second shut out of the season.

Saturday, the Hornets would come back to defeat Wayne State 6-1 and Concordia-St. Paul 8-7. Castons would pick up her seventh win this season only allowing one run on five hits in the game against Wayne State.

In the night cap, CSP would open with two unearned runs in the first, but the Hornets were quick to recover with an RBI single from Stephanie Goodwin, junior outfielder, and Taylor Zordel, junior infielder, in the bottom of the second.

The Hornets left three stranded in the seventh to send the game into extra innings. Jessica Gragg, junior catcher, scored the game-winning run to defeat CSP 8-7. She ended the night going three for five, with a homer and a run both scored.

The Hornets finished the tournament with a 3-2 loss to #8 Augustana. They ended the tournament 3-1. The Hornets are 10-3 overall for the season and start the Teri Mathis Tournament this Saturday against Truman State.
