WWU softball splits with Western Oregon


Home runs decided both games as Western Washington University split a doubleheader with Western Oregon University, winning the nightcap 6-2 after losing the opener 6-3 in Great Northwest Athletic Conference softball action Sunday in Bellingham.

The Vikings are 21-21 overall and 10-10 in league play, and WOU is 23-24 overall and 12-9 in conference action. The Wolves remained fourth in the GNAC standings, as they look to wrap up the final berth in the GNAC Tournament, and WWU is fifth.

Rachelle Berry homered twice and Jordan Walley drove in three runs with another for WWU in the second game. WOU's Jourdan Williams hit two homers in the first contest.

Walley was named the Red Lion/Great Northwest Athletic Conference Softball Player of the Week for April 14-20.

Walley, a freshman, had six hits in 10 at bats and drove in seven runs as the Vikings split doubleheaders with nationally No. 21 ranked and league-leading Saint Martin's and Western Oregon.
