COLUMBIA — Columbia College softball won both games in a doubleheader against Stephens College on Tuesday.

Carly Spalding led the Cougars with four RBIs in the first game of the day.

The second game featured fewer runs but ended in five innings as well. The Cougars jumped out early with two runs in the first inning. Columbia College built a steady lead, scoring on the Stars in every inning.

Columbia College claimed the sweep with a 10-2 win. The Cougars have won 13 of their last 14 games and are tied for first place in the American Midwest Conference.
