The 19th seeded Columbia College Cougars softball team upset 11th seeded Dickinson State University Blue Hawks 1-0 on Thursday during the first day of the NAIA Softball National Championships in Decatur, Ala. With the victory, the Cougars improve to 37-17 on the season.

Columbia College’s Tori Long scored on a wild pitch in the first inning after the Dickinson State pitcher loaded the bases. Long went two-for-three in the game.

Valerie Teter (30-6) was the winning pitcher for the Cougars. She had 13 strikeouts, allowed four hits and had no walks. Dickinson State’s lead-off batter reached base in the fourth and sixth innings, but the Cougars prevented any Blue Hawk from advancing past second base.

Columbia College will face sixth seeded Belhaven University at 12:30 p.m. on Friday in Decatur, Ala.
