COLUMBIA — The Columbia College softball team split a doubleheader Tuesday against visiting Park. The Cougars won 2-0 in the first game then lost 3-2 in the second.

In the first game, Columbia College scored both its runs in the fifth inning. Kensie Cavanah walked then scored from third base on wild pitch. Tori Long singled and scored on a passed ball. Valerie Teter (10-3), who was named the NAIA national Pitcher of the Week on Tuesday, took the win, giving up just four hits and one walk while striking out 10.

In the second game, Park (12-5, 5-1 in the American Midwest Conference) scored one run in the fifth and two in the sixth. The Cougars' Samantha Stringer singled and scored when Teter hit her third home run of the season in the top of the sixth. Kacey Rehagen (6-4) suffered the loss, giving up seven hits and three earned runs while striking out five.

Teter went three-for-four for the day with a double, a home run, two RBIs and one run scored.
