The Hudson Valley Community College softball team (3-5) defeated SUNY Adirondack (0-6) 4-3 and 10-2 on Monday afternoon.

The Vikings rallied in the fifth inning after trailing 3-0, putting four runs on the board. Maggie Miller (Maple Hill/Schodack) picked up her second win of the year allowing only three runs, none of which were earned. Miller, Alyssa Hand (Columbia/East Greenbush) and Sierra Bailey (Hoosick Falls/Hoosick Falls) each recorded a hit and a run scored in the win.

In game two, the Vikings jumped out to an early 7-0 lead in the first inning and never looked back. Hand led the team at the plate with a single, double, triple and two RBIs. Shayla Morris (Berlin/Berlin) and Meghan Roullier (Columbia/Wynantskill) added two hits apiece, and Morris also picked up her first win of the season on the mound.
