Bison Roundup

The North Dakota State softball team recorded two quality wins over Indiana University Purdue University of Indianapolis this past weekend.

Senior Logan Moreland went 6-for-8 with a pair of home runs as the Bison handled IUPUI 14-2 and 8-3 in a Summit League doubleheader played Saturday. Sophomore Jacquelyn Sertic and freshman Kaitlyn Leddy both earn wins for the Bison. NDSU has been playing strong as of late, winning eight of its last 10 games.

NDSU pitchers had a field day, limiting the Jaguar offense to only six hits. That was more than enough for the Bison offense, which had a season-high 18 hits in the opening game. The Herd collected 31 hits and nine for extra-bases over the two games.

Junior Alyssa Reina’s hit a huge two-run homer to left field in the top of the first to give the Bison the early lead in the first game. It was Reina’s third home run of the season. The Bison scored in six of seven innings in the first game to claim the victory. The Jaguars committed three errors in the first game alone; the Bison stayed out of the “E” column.

In game two, NDSU jumped out to an early 6-0 lead, but let the Jaguars hang around.

IUPUI cut the deficit to 5-1, with Taylor Chitwood’s RBI double in the fourth inning. Chitwood stayed active in the bottom of the sixth, this time cutting the lead to 7-3 with a two-run home run. Moreland finished the game out strong batting 3-for-3 as NDSU combined for 13 hits and came away with the win.

The Bison will play a three-game series against Indiana Purdue-Fort Wayne starting at 12 p.m. Saturday with a doubleheader.
