2009 Season - Vikings eliminated from CCIW Tournament

BLOOMINGTON, Illinois - Despite a tremendous pitching performance from Jackie Gill (Heyworth HS, Heyworth, Ill.), Augustana was eliminated from the College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin softball tournament on Friday, May 1 in Bloomington, Illinois. The Vikings, who earlier in the day lost to North Central 6-2, fell to Carthage 2-0.

Gill went the distance and tossed a five hitter at the Lady Reds, striking out five and not allowing any walks. She fell to 13-8 on the seaosn with the loss.

She gave up two runs on two hits in the second inning and that proved to be the difference.

Augustana could manage just four hits in the game and no Viking player had more than one.

The Vikings are now 28-14 overall while Carthage moves on in the tournament with a 25-11 record.
