The Saints won the second game a little easier, scoring their winning runs in the sixth. Santa Fe College sweeps the doubleheader with a 4-1 victory.

“Our pitching held us in the game until we were able to capitalize and get on top,” Saints Head Coach Savanah Webster said. “We had a great performance on defense in the circle and timely hitting from our middle to bottom of the line-up. Two big wins on the road.”

The victorious Saints return home this Saturday, March 16 to face NJCAA #3 Florida Southwestern State College. The doubleheader starts at 1 p.m.
