The TigerHawks started the week by sweeping MFL/MM, 12-7 and 11-4, Monday, June 5, in West Union. Over the weekend, NFV split four games at the Jesup Tournament.

Monday, senior Megan Feldman got NFV off on the right foot in game one with a towering fly ball that cleared the right-field fence with plenty to spare for her first varsity homer.

The TigerHawks added five more runs in the second and four more in the third to take a commanding 10-2 lead.

However, the Bulldogs managed a four-run fifth to stay in the game.

The game ended with a MFL/MM pop fly behind Feldman at second. As she backpedaled, the wind blew the ball far enough to tick off the end of her glove. However, it deflected right into the glove of hard-charging right-fielder Jenna Bruns, who alertly snared the ball for the final out.
