Penn 5, Harvard 4

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - The Penn softball team split a doubleheader with Harvard Saturday afternoon on Harvard's Soldiers Field. The Quakers dropped the first game 10-0 in five innings, but came back in the nightcap to top the Crimson, 5-4, improving their record to 10-13 overall and 5-1 in the Ivy League.

Penn used a five-run second inning to claim the win in game two. Junior Alisha Prystowsky went 2-for-4 with two RBI, while classmate Taylor Tieman (5-1)sealed her fifth win on the mound. Tieman also served as an offensive spark, starting the rally with a single down the right field line. Seniors Susan Miller and Keiko Uraguchialso singled in the inning, followed up by Prystowsky's RBI double.

With the score 5-1, Harvard threatened, scoring one in the fourth and two in the sixth, but the Quakers held on for the victory.

In game one, sophomore Chelsea Ott (2-5) took the loss throwing 2.2 innings, allowing eight hits, eight runs, and four earned. Out of the bullpen, sophomore Cailyn Hennessy hurled 1.1 innings, allowing six hits, two runs, while striking out one.

Freshman Stephanie Caso led Penn at the plate, going 2-for-3, while junior Bridgett McDugall had a double in the run-ruled loss.

The Quakers are back in action tomorrow when they take on Dartmouth in a Ivy League doubleheader starting at 12:30 p.m. in Hanover,N.H.
