Southwestern softball dropped a doubleheader 1-3 and 0-7 on the road for their season finish against Friends University.
Designated player, MacKenzie Lyons, senior pitcher, received the game one start. Before that, she drove in one for a double allowing Kayleen Gonzalez, senior outfielder, to advance to third.
The Builders left two on base barring a strikeout and groundout going to the bottom with the builders leading 1-0.
At the bottom of the first, the Falcons put two runs on the board and one in the bottom of the second.
Despite some early offensive, the first and second run totals tallied for the rest of the game due to improved pitching and defense.
The Builders could not get anything going in the runs column and suffered the shutout in the second game.
Senior Alexis Gouyton gave an outlook as the season ended and optimism for next season.
“We had a great group of girls this year with immense talent. I think we learned a lot about our teammates and ourselves. I can’t wait for what the underclassman do in the future,” said Goutyon.
Lyons reflected on her time in a SC uniform.
“It is a bittersweet feeling to be done but it is time for a new chapter,” said Lyons.
