Freshmen Shannen McNamara (Battle Mountain HS, Avon, Colo.) and Kim Sawyer (Batavia HS, Batavia, Ill.) led the way as Augustana’s No. 1 team, finishing 4-0 and winning the A Flight Championship.  The duo opened with an (8-0) win against the No. 2 team from Central and an (8-5) victory against Cornell’s No. 2 squad.  In the semi-finals, McNamara and Sawyer beat Grinnell’s No. 1 team (8-3) to advance to the final.  The tandem battled back and forth against the No. 1 team from Cornell in the championship match before prevailing (8-6).
