COLUMBIA — The Missouri softball team completed its fall schedule with an 8-0 record on Saturday, finishing with two dominating wins over Three Rivers Community College and Lake Land College.

The Tigers started the day by taking advantage of nine Three Rivers errors, producing two 8-run innings and two 5-run innings on the way to a 26-2 win. 


Senior Marla Schweisberger led the offensive attack for the Tigers, going 4-4 with a home run and four RBIs. Sophomore Nicole Hudson also had a good day at the plate, picking up six RBIs behind the power of a grand slam.

Lisa Simmons was the winning pitcher in the first game, improving her fall record to 4-0. The senior struck out two in five innings, allowing only one earned run. Simmons ended the fall season with a 0.67 ERA.

In the second game of the day, Missouri kept the offense rolling against Lake Land College. The Tigers scored five runs in the first inning, batting around while capitalizing on three errors.

Missouri kept the scoring going for the rest of the game, scoring three in the third, three in the fourth and five in the sixth on the way to a 16-1 win.

Junior pitcher Kristin Nottelmann looked to be in midseason form, allowing just two hits and one run in five innings while striking out seven.

The Tigers will begin their quest for a third straight Women's College World Series appearance when the regular season kicks off in February.
