The Columbia College softball team began its spring break road trip with a split against Vanguard on Monday in Costa Mesa, Calif.

The Cougars, ranked No. 12 in the NAIA, lost 2-0 in the first game. Senior Kacey Rehagen (5-2) took the mound for the Cougars, pitching all seven innings and allowing three hits in the losing effort.

Vanguard (19-15) took the lead in the first inning and scored another run in the third to solidify the victory. The Cougars (14-7) missed on an opportunity to score in the sixth inning, leaving two runners on base.

The second game was all about Cougars senior co-captain Valerie Teter (9-4), who started the game off with a solo home run. It was all the offense the Cougars needed. Teter threw a perfect game, striking out six en route to a 6-0 victory. It was Teter’s second perfect game of the season.

Along with the solo home run, Teter had two hits and three RBI to lead the Cougars' offense. Sophomore Chelsie Crain also drove in a run off a double in the second inning.

The Cougars continue their west coast road trip on Wednesday against California Baptist, the No. 1 team in the NAIA rankings at 37-1. The doubleheader is set to start at 7 p.m. CST.
