Clarksville, Ark.-Millsaps College allowed a combined four hits in a double-header sweep over the Lady Eagles on Saturday in Jackson, Mississippi.

Millsaps (16-7) strolled out to an early 4-0 lead after two innings behind just three hits and went on to a 8-0 win in game one. Ozarks (9-9) committed an error in each of the first two frames. A Chelsea Joslin single in the second was the team’s only hit of the game. Stephany Henson (3-6) took the loss.

The Lady Eagles got on the board first, but Millsaps answered with three runs in the first and four runs in the second to earn a 9-1 win in game two. Ozarks’ bats struggled at the plate, as they collected three hits in the non-conference contest. Brittany Thompson (6-2) suffered the loss.

Ozarks will travel to Richardson, Texas, to face Texas-Dallas in American Southwest Conference play on April 1.
