NAPLES, Fla. – Lauren Beougher drove in six runs to boost the Albion College softball team to its first victory of the season, a 15-14 decision over Anna Maria College in eight innings.

A first-year catcher who prepped at Bullock Creek, Beogher hit her second homerun of the young season. It was a three-run shot.

Angela Hoffsis added three hits and four stolen bases.

Eryn VanderVlucht was the winning pitcher.

In its first game of the day, Albion battled Waynesburg University to a 1-1 tie after four innings. Waynesburg pulled away in the late innings, sending Albion to a 6-1 loss.

Hoffsis collected a hit in the game.

Albion will visit the CenturyLink Sports Complex in Fort Myers for Monday games against New Jersey City University and Rivier (N.H.) University.
