Softball: Bowman, Stars sweep Hawks

Pitcher Cheyenne Bowman got one win in relief and another in a starting role Sunday to help the University of Illinois Springfield sweep a Great Lakes Valley Conference doubleheader from Rockhurst by scores of 1-0 and 8-6.

Bowman, now 10-8, pitched the last four innings of the 10-inning opener, limiting the Hawks to one hit. UIS finally broke through with a run in the top of the 10th when Tina Buck scored all the way from first base after a Rockhurst fielding error with one out.

The Stars’ Chelsea Minor went 2-for-3 in the opener.
