The Scots split series against Kalamazoo and No. 9 Trine last week. Juniors Kaylee Martin (North Branch, Mich.) and Madyson Piche (Sault Sainte Marie, Mich.) each hit their first home runs of the season in Alma's 7-2 win over the Hornets while freshman pitcher Haley Ullrich (Elk River, Minn.) allowed two runs on five hits, seven strikeouts and just one walk over seven innings. Against the Thunder, senior Riley Terwilliger (Mount Pleasant, Mich.) had the game-winning hit in the bottom of the seventh, a single up the middle that broke a 10-10 tie. Terwilliger finished the series with Trine 4-for-7 with two doubles, a triple and two RBI.

The Hornets finished an eight-game week with a 2-6 record including wins over Alma and Manchester. Seniors Andrea MacMichael and Ashley Schiffer lead Kalamazoo this season with 31 hits each. MacMichael broke the school record for most runs in a career this week. Fellow senior Hayleigh Alamo has been Kalamazoo's biggest power threat this season with a school record four home runs. The Hornets continue MIAA play on Thursday at Adrian before hosting Olivet Saturday afternoon.


Olivet (17-13, 6-6)

The Olivet College softball team split a home doubleheader with Hope before sweeping a doubleheader at Albion College. In the first game against the Flying Dutch, the Comets won in dramatic fashion as freshman Kaylee Clothier hit a walk-off two-run homer in the seventh inning. For the week, Clothier led the team with nine RBI. Freshman Dayoni Mahlich and sophomore Erin Scanlon both hit .500 and hit their first collegiate home runs. Against Albion, sophomore Paige Poulter had a pinch-hit two-run homer for her first collegiate dinger. In the circle, Gracie Boyle was 3-1.


Saint Mary's (9-18, 6-4)

The Belles posted a 2-4 overall record and a 2-2 mark in conference contests on the week. The Belles were stopped in a pair of one-run games in a non-conference twinbill at home versus Anderson last Monday. Saint Mary's took 3-0 and 7-3 wins at Albion on Wednesday before falling 2-1 and 7-2 at Calvin on Saturday. Hailey Hisaw allowed just four hits and walked one with three strikeouts for Hisaw's second shutout victory in the circle in game one at Albion. Zoe Bruni earned the relief pitching win after going the final five innings and allowing no hits and no runs with five strikeouts in game two against the Brits.

On Saturday, the team traveled to face Alma and emerged with a split, losing the first game 11-10 and then winning the second in five innings by the score of 8-0. Junior Makenna Hartline (Niles, Mich.) was a menace at the plate finishing the week with a 2.000 slugging percentage on the back of three home runs.
