COLUMBIA — The Columbia College softball team defeated Harris-Stowe State University in both games of their doubleheader Monday at Antimi Field.

Columbia College swept Harris-Stowe 15-3 and 27-0 to improve to 9-5 in the American Midwest Conference and 22-16 for the season.

The Cougars' Marli Hayes, Morgan Bounds and Whitni Howell all hit home runs in the first game. Howell's, a grand slam, was her first of the season.

Senior pitcher Jordan Crisp (13-8) earned the win, allowing just three hits and one walk while striking out eight. Columbia College logged 18 hits in the victory, which it easily surpassed in the second game. 

Game two featured 28 Cougars hits and 25 RBIs, both school records, and the Cougars tied the record for most runs scored with 27. Jessica Hardy broke the school record for most home runs in a game with three and RBIs in a single game with nine.

Taylor Richter (9-6) threw the shutout, giving up five hits while striking out 10.

Columbia College is set to finish regular season play Benedictine University in a doubleheader scheduled for 2 and 4 p.m. Tuesday at Antimi Field.
