    Competing on the road, the Spires lost both of its doubleheaders on Tuesday and Wednesday.
    To begin the week, USM fell 6-0 and 9-1 to St. Catharine College of Kentucky. Then on the following day, the squad dropped a 7-1 and 9-0 result to Tennessee Wesleyan.

    She allowed four earned runs on seven hits and struck out six. Tracie Weege recorded Saint Mary's lone RBI.
