The Eutectics solidly defeated Principia College on Tuesday, April 21, in a double header in Elsah, Ill. Freshman Allie Dewald struck out 10 in seven innings, allowing six hits and four walks, to collect the 8-3 win on the mound in game one. Down 3-1 after the third, Dewald’s RBI double brought in Kate Toler to kick off a strong fourth inning. The Euts had four runners cross the plate in the fourth, clinching the lead and never looking back. Freshman Haley Gegelman went 3 for 4 at the plate, including two doubles, to boost the Eutectic offense.

Second-year Bailey Johnson pitched six solid innings in game two to collect the 13-1 win from the circle. She struck out two and allowed only four hits, three walks, and one earned run. The Euts struck early, scoring six runs in the first two innings and never gave up the lead. Kelsey Toler (P2) led the Euts on offense, with three hits and two RBIs.

The final double header of the season was versus William Woods University, ranked sixth in the AMC, on Thursday, April 23, at Chesterfield Athletic Association. The Euts suffered two losses at the hands of the Owls, 11-2 and 13-0. The Euts found an early lead in game one, marking the scoreboard first with two runs in the bottom of the third. The Owls answered with a run in the fourth and tied it up with two more in the fifth. Tied 3-3 in the top of the sixth, the Owls went on a hitting rampage, driving in eight runs and clinching the win. Dewald took the loss on the mound.

In game two, the Owls took the lead early with three runs in the first and another in the second as the Euts remained scoreless. It was William Woods’ nine runs in the fourth inning that brought the score to 13-0, which would not change. Johnson pitched five innings for the Euts to take the loss in the circle.

The Eutectics finished their first season in a conference with a 6-26 (3-21 AMC) record. Freshmen Taylor Underwood and Allie Dewald led the team at the plate this season, holding the highest batting average (.324) and slugging percentage (.545) on the team, respectively. Dewald blasted three home runs this season as part of her 28 total hits. She also earned two wins on the mound for the Eutectics. With no true seniors this season, the Euts should return the entire roster next year. The experience gained this season should help the Eutectics find more wins in 2016.
