“A win is a win, and we are happy that we were able to hold on to both games, but we did not necessarily play well,” Coach Wurth added. “We had a few really nice plays on defense and we worked hard but our mental approach was not like it usually is at the plate. We need to work on that and focus moving on to conference play tomorrow. Defensively we worked on getting the lead baserunner and our center fielder- Jenna Harcharik took over in the outfield retiring 7 RMU hitters. She had a solid game.”
