PNW Softball Hosts St. Ambrose Tuesday

HAMMOND, Ind. & WESTVILLE, Ind. – The Purdue University Northwest softball team hosts Saint Ambrose University in a Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference doubleheader Tuesday afternoon. 

The Pride (19-16-1, 9-5 CCAC) will take on the Fighting Bees (26-8, 9-3 CCAC) starting at 3 p.m. (CT) at Dowling Park.

The Purdue University Northwest softball team picked up a sweep over Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference opponent Calumet St. Joseph Friday afternoon. 

After a Game 1 victory over the Crimson Wave, 7-5, the Pride used a grand slam by Kyleigh Payne followed by a two-run homer from Samantha Oppenhuis to lift the Pride past CCSJ, 9-1, in Game 2.

Julie Trellicoso leads SAU with a .446 batting average with 24 runs scored and a .479 on-base percentage while Ashley Yattoni leads the Fighting Bees in the circle with a 2.24 ERA and 12-3 record.

With the merger of the Purdue Calumet and Purdue North Central athletic programs, this will be the first meeting with the newly formed Purdue Northwest softball team and St. Ambrose.
