Ozarks drops to 13-22 overall and 3-19 in the ASC. Mississippi College improves to 21-14 overall and 12-10 in league action. Mississippi College used a four-run second inning behind two home runs to upend the Lady Eagles 6-1 in game one. Ozarks starter Dana Marvin started strong, striking out the first three batters she faced.

The Lady Eagles recorded only two hits. Marvin (2-9) received the loss. The Lady Choctaws used a strong sixth inning to earn an 8-0 victory over Ozarks in game two.
