Sterling, Kan.—Panhandle State Softball came away with one win in a two-game series with Sterling College on Monday. The Aggies got off to a rough start, losing 20-4 in game one, but took a ten-inning win over the Warriors in game two by a score of 7-6.

Sterling collected a whopping 14 runs in the second inning of game one, and added six more in the third. The Aggies put up three runs in the fourth on a two-run triple by Salina Galindo and an RBI single by Faith Guzman. In the fifth inning, Panhandle's Darcie Wilson hit her seventh homerun of the season to bring in the fourth and final run for the Aggies. Three pitchers took the circle for Panhandle in game one with freshman Emily Worley holding the loss.

The Warriors struck first in game two with one run scored in the third inning. Panhandles starting pitcher Brissa Rivera did a good job on the rubber, holding Sterling to five hits and one run through the sixth inning. The Aggies pulled ahead 2-1 in the sixth as senior Madison Heathington hit a two-run homer to left field; an RBI single by Brooklyne Bolton in the seventh gave the Aggies a 3-1 lead going into the bottom of the inning. Sterling prolonged play scoring two runs in the seventh inning, both on wild pitched from the Panhandle circle.

Wilson kept things going in the eighth with another homer good for two Aggie runs, but the Warriors answered with two runs of their own in the eighth, tying the game at 5-5. An error in the ninth pushed one more Aggie runner through, and the score evened again as an RBI double by the Warriors sent the game into inning ten. Wilson led off with a single in the top of the tenth, with Heathington placed on second; both runners advanced on a sac bunt by pinch hitter Jackie Sanchez. A fielder's choice play by Salina Galindo brought in the seventh run for the Aggies, giving them a 7-6 lead. Pitcher Julia Ibarra, who entered in the ninth, held on for the win leaving two runners on base to end the game. Ibarra earned the win in two innings, and the Aggies upped their record to 11-26 on the season.
