Softball splits at Youngstown State
The softball team (20-12, 6-2 HL) posted a doubleheader split Friday to open its series at Youngstown State (18-13, 5-2 HL). Saturday’s finale match was canceled because of snow.

Senior Laura Swan and juniors Kaleigh Nagle and Savannah Soppet all had three hits, with Mack-Miller (2), Swan (2) and Nagle producing doubles for the Flames. Of the runs brought in, Nagle was responsible for four, followed by Swan with two.
