Lady Pirates Softball closed the regular season with another home split against Three Rivers Community College on Tuesday. NCMC, who will be the #4 seed in the upcoming Region 16 Tournament, finished with a 34-15 overall record and 10-14 in region play.
Alex Miller stared in the 5-1 opening game victory. She tossed the complete game allowing only one run to Three Rivers. At the plate, she clubbed a 2 run homer which would be all the offense the Lady Pirates would need.
Game two saw Three Rivers rebound for a 14-2 victory. NCMC gave up those 14 runs on 8 hits and 4 errors.
