The Columbia College softball team swept a doubleheader from William Woods 6-0 and 7-2 on Wednesday in Fulton.

The Cougars, who fell from No. 22 to No. 24 in the latest NAIA rankings on Tuesday, have gone 7-1 in their past eight games and improved to 9-3 in the American Midwest Conference. The only loss in the last eight games came against conference leader Williams Baptist (10-2 in the conference).

In the first game of the day, the Cougars (22-11) started off with only two hits in the first four innings but scored four runs in the fifth and added two more runs in the top of the seventh.

Senior co-captain Valerie Teter (15-7) pitched seven innings for the Cougars, allowing two hits and striking out 10.

In the second game, William Woods (22-17, 7-7) scored a run in the first, but the Cougars retaliated with three runs in the bottom of the inning, including Teter's solo home run. The Owls claimed a home run in the bottom of the third, but they did not score again.

Teter pitched seven more innings for the Cougars, giving up eight hits and two runs and striking out nine.

Columbia College's next game is against Northwestern Oklahoma State (11-25) at noon Friday in the opening game of the Oklahoma City University Tournament. The Cougars are also scheduled to play No. 5 Central Baptist (37-2) and No. 8 Oklahoma City (28-7) in the Tournament.
