Columbia College softball team hosted a conference game against St. Andrews University from Laurinburg, North Carolina, on March 17 and the Koalas came out on top.

With a score of 2-0 in the 3rd inning, the Koalas continued to use their defense in order to hold off the Knights.

“It felt great to take two games from them, because the more wins, the better shot we have at conference tournament,” Maggie Leatherman, sophomore Columbia College catcher and behavioral science major, said.

With the help of pitching, four runs and defense, Columbia College was able to pull off a 4-0 win.

“Our defense and our pitching works together, and we all have each other’s backs,” Leatherman said.

The Koalas also won the second game with a score of 10-2.

They’ve now won 50 percent of their conference games and 59.1 percent of their overall games.

“My favorite part about softball is the excitement during a game. You truly never know how games will turn out. Everybody has to constantly give it their full effort because a win is not guaranteed,” Erin Blizzard, first-year Columbia College pitcher and early childhood education major, said.

Watch the koalas warm up.
