RALEIGH, N.C. -- The Meredith College softball team capped off a weekend doubleheader with a split in Sunday's non-conference action with Shaw University. Meredith claimed the first game 19-0 in five innings, and the Bears followed with a 5-1 decision in the nightcap. Brittany Bucklin and Eran Artigues combined for three homers and six RBIs to lead the Avenging Angels.
Meredith hosted a hitting clinic in game one with 19 runs on 16 hits with three home runs, two triples, and a double. Taylor Jackson recorded five strikeouts with just two outs in her complete game pitched.
Game two followed a different pattern as Shaw opened the scoring with five runs in the second frame. Laura Zievis ended the draught in top-3 with a double to right. She scored on a sacrifice fly from Katie Kepley in the next at-bat to put the Angels on the board.
Julia Cerasi recorded the loss in her first career start. Savannah Patterson entered to face just three batters before Myah Morse finished out the game with five strikeouts in four innings. Baile Nixon earned the win for Shaw with three K's and just one earned run.
