No. 7 Luther did all of its damage in the first three innings as the Norse defeated Middlebury (VT) 8-1. The Norse scored two in the first, five in the second and one in the third.
Kelsey Rose, Carli Radil and Alise Miller all had two RBI. Both Rose and Radil drove in runs in the first and second frames, while Miller hit a two-run home run in the second. Miller's blast was her second of the day.
Rose (3-5), Miller (2-4), Kristen Winter (3-4) and Lindsey Uphoff (3-4) all had multiple hit outings.
Topanga Skiles picked up her second win of the year in the circle. Skiles allowed one run on four hits and struck out five. She retired 17 of the last 18 batters she faced after giving up the lone run in the second.
The win was Luther's seventh in a row. The Norse are now 14-2. They will wrap up their spring trip on Saturday, March 29 when they will face University of Chicago and Williams (MA).
