SMC Softball: Saint Mary’s travels to Albion

Observer Staff Report | Friday, April 9, 2010

Saint Mary’s (13-9, 2-0 MIAA) looks to extend its winning streak to three as it hits the road to face Albion (6-15, 0-5) in a conference matchup. The Belles are coming off a two-game sweep of Kalamazoo on the road that saw the offense explode to the tune of 53 runs.

Scoring runs has been the team’s strength all season. The Belles are led by senior Ashley Peterson, who paces the team with a .467 batting average and 35 hits. Junior Hayley Bojorquez and her seven home runs have been an excellent complement to Peterson’s production.

Saint Mary’s looks to develop and maintain the consistency it lacked last year as it competes for the conference title. The Belles head to Albion in search of their second consecutive road sweep Friday at 3:30 p.m.
