"We beat ourselves in our two loses," said head coach Jon Janssen. "Offensively we are getting it done, but we are hurting ourselves on defensive. We just had too many errors." Amanda Luney picked up the win against Howard Payne. Regan Brown, Leigh Thompson and Luney each recorded two hits in the victory. "Against Howard Payne, we jumped on them real quick," said Janssen. "We scored 5 runs in the first inning. We hit the ball real well." Janae Smith earned the win against Schreiner. Smith had four strikeouts in seven innings of work. Shannon Rainbolt led Ozarks with 4 hits. Brown, Thompson, Luney and Kelly Bennett each had two hits. U of O will take on East Texas Baptist on March 15 and 16 in Marshall, Texas.

We need to buckle down against ETBU and hit the ball well in order to get some wins."
