The Kewpies also got a grand slam from Catherine Stepovonich, who totalled 6 RBIs for the game.

Peterson, who was on the MU track and field team from 1997 to 2000, is a two-time NCAA champion and six-time All-American. Peterson is the current collegiate record holder in both the indoor and outdoor 800.
