Softball: UIS splits two shutouts at Indy

Taylor Bowlby tossed a four-hit shutout to give the Prairie Stars a well-earned 1-0 victory over the No. 10-ranked University of Indianapolis. But the Greyhounds struck back in the second game, riding a grand slam by Taylor Russell to a 6-0 win.

Uindy’s Morgan Foley struck out 14 Prairie Star batters and held UIS (25-15, 12-10 GLVC) to just one hit in the first game, but two errors and two hit-by-pitches helped push across the only run Bowlby and the Prairie Stars would need in the first game.

Bowlby now has 16 wins on the season and needs just one more to tie Alexandria Smith’s single season UIS record.

The win was featured by The State Journal-Register on April 12, 2015.
