BOONE, IA – The Northeast Community College softball team struggled with adjustments and defense in yesterday’s doubleheader at Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC). The Hawks dropped both games, 8-0 and 9-3.
“We had a tough time making adjustments at the plate in game one, and defense looked sloppy,” said Northeast Coach Iris Woodhead. “We picked it up in game two, and I thought we played five very competitive innings of softball against a very good team.”
DMACC is currently ranked sixth in the National Junior College Athletic Association Division II poll.
In the second game, Kianna Garza hit a two-run home run in the third inning, and Teanne Edens had a single home run in the sixth. Claudia Navarro batted 2-for-3.
On Thursday, the Hawks were blanked by #2 Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids, IA, 6-0 and 14-0.
Northeast (20-29 overall, 9-13 in conference) will travel to Creston, IA, on Wednesday to face Southwestern Community College in a doubleheader. Game times are 2 and 4 p.m.
