Splits leave Spartans tied for third
Two weekend doubleheader splits leave the Southwestern softball team lodged in a third-place conference tie with Marshalltown Community College at 9-7 each.
Eighth-ranked DMACC (16-0) and No. 6 Kirkwood (14-0) have locked up the first two seeds for regional tournament play, but the Spartans (16-10 overall) enter this week with several opportunities to take a tighter grip on the third position.
With playing conditions difficult at Marshalltown Friday, the Tigers returned to Creston for a second time to complete the league matchups. Marshalltown, now 14-16 overall, saw the Spartans take control with a 13-run first inning in a 17-3 opening game victory.
