Lions score 29 runs to sweep twinbill

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — The Concord University softball team scored a total of 29 runs while not allowing a single opposing player to cross home plate Wednesday as the Mountain Lions won a pair of run-rule games over Cairn and Eureka 19-0 and 10-0 at the National Collegiate Softball Invitational.

The wins improve Concord's record to 8-10 on the year.

Becca Gleason finished 7-for-8 with five runs scored, four RBIs and two stolen bases. Gleason racked up a Concord record three triples against Cairn alone.

Stephanie Harper added three hits and four RBIs on the day. Alyssa Morris combined to go 4-for-7 with three runs scored and one RBI in the two games.

Concord's 19 runs and 18 hits were its second-highest figures in each category this season. The Mountain Lions scored 20 runs on 20 hits in a victory against UVA-Lynchburg earlier in the year.

The Mountain Lions will look to extend its winning streak to four games when it plays Eureka and Principia College Thursday at the NCIS.

Concord lost to Tusculum College 9-1 on Tuesday night. Harper had three hits in the loss.
