The Hudson Valley Community College softball team (3-3) split a doubleheader with Spring College's junior varsity team, 11-8 and 4-3, losing the first game and taking the second.

In game one, Hudson Valley battled from behind most of the contest, but never could take the lead. After three comebacks, the Lady Vikings finally fell going down three runs in the top half of the sixth. Molly McDonough (Lansingburgh, Lansingburgh) went three-for-five and Megan Bailey (Columbia, West Sand Lake) went deep for Hudson Valley.

Game two saw the Lady Vikings take their first lead of the day as Stephanie Frederick (Greenville, Greenville) hit an RBI triple. Pitcher Christina Dunton (Chatham, Chatham) picked up the win.

The ladies will host Herkimer County Community College on Saturday, April 10 at 1 p.m.
