The Concord University softball team snapped a five-game losing streak with a doubleheader sweep at Davis & Elkins Wednesday afternoon. The Mountain Lions downed the Senators 2-1 in game one before dominating the competition 17-5 in game two.

The victories improve Concord's record to 16-21 overall and 4-8 in the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. The 17 runs scored in game two were the third most runs scored in a game by the Mountain Lions this season.

Freshman Alyssa Morris had a game-winning RBI-double in game one and finished the contest 2-for-4. Senior Becca Gleason also had a pair of hits in the opener.

Junior Rachael Mack improved her record to 4-8 on the season while sophomore Lacey McDougall came on in relief of Mack to preserve the one-run victory and pick up her first save of the year.

Four players recorded multi-hit performances in game two's 12-run, six-inning triumph with Morris and sophomore Hayley Wade leading the way with three hits apiece. Gleason and sophomore Jessica Seymour added two hits each.

After netting the save in game one, McDougall returned to the circle in game two to register her eighth win of the season while sophomore Brantlea Wood picked up the save in relief.

Concord remains on the road for a pair of WVIAC doubleheaders this weekend. CU will play at Shepherd on Saturday at 12:00 p.m. and at Seton Hill 12:00 p.m. Sunday.
