Albion softball drops its opening day games

BRIGHTON, Mich. – Kalamazoo College rallied for three runs with two out in the sixth to stun Albion College, 4-2, in a non-league softball game at the Legacy Dome on Friday.

Lauren Beougher, a first-year catcher from Merrill, Mich., sent a 1-0 pitch over the left field fence for a two-run shot as Albion took a 2-1 lead in the third.

The lead held up until the sixth. Anna Majewski and Alyssa Heitkamp rapped singles with one out. Following a ground out, Andrea MacMichael doubled to drive in the runners.

Angela Hoffsis collected two of Albion's six hits and she drew a walk.

Earlier in the day, Albion absorbed a 9-5 loss to Clearly University. The Britons led, 5-2, after three innings, but Cleary scored seven times in the fifth. Beougher and Kimberly Freitas collected two hits apiece and Camille Roloff drove in two runs.

Albion has about 2 ½ weeks to prepare for spring break competition in Naples and Fort Myers, Fla. The Britons have March 4 games against Waynesburg (Pa.) University and Anna Maria (Mass.) College.
