Moeller gives UIS first win of softball season

Brianne Moeller was a dual threat in leading the University of Illinois Springfield Prairie Stars to their first victory of the season in a doubleheader split with Southern Arkansas on Monday.

Moeller tossed a two-hit shutout in the Prairie Stars’ 1-0 victory over the Muleriders in Game 1. She finished with eight strikeouts and drove in the game’s only run with a first-inning triple that scored teammate Ashley Sanders.

UIS (1-7) lost the second game 2-1. The Muleriders scored the winning run on a squeeze bunt in the bottom of the seventh.

The win was featured in a March 16, 2010, article in the State Journal-Register.
