WATERVILLE — Colby College’s Alyssa Lepore collected her 100th career hit as the Mules swept a softball doubleheader with Maine Maritime Academy, winning 3-2 and 1-0 at Crafts Field.

In the first game, Colby (5-10) went up 2-0 before the Mariners (10-5) tied it on home runs by Leach Jackson and McKenzie Burke. Colby went ahead to stay in the fifth inning when Barbara Santos singled home Kelsey Yardumian. Aimee Polimeno went the distance for the Mules for her first collegiate victory.

Colby’s Lauren Becker allowed three hits and struck out eight in the second game. Graichen scored the game’s only run as Lepore reached on a fielder’s choice.

Maine 10, Husson 2: Jennifer Eberhardt went 3 for 4 with two RBIs and a run scored and Kirstin Allen went 2 for 2 with three RBIs and two runs scored as the Black Bears earned the non-conference win in Orono.

Kalie Burnham and Meghan McLain each added two hits for Maine (16-22). Kyle Sparks (4-4) earned the win.

Husson falls to 9-11.

Bowdoin 6-5, Thomas 2-3: Gen Barlow and Hannah Wurgaft each drove in two runs for the Polar Bears in the opener, and Bowdoin rallied in the bottom of the sixth inning of the nightcap to earn the sweep in Brunswick.

Thomas (11-9) was held to five hits in the second game, but still led 3-1 entering the bottom of the sixth. Bowdoin scored four runs in the inning to hang Maine Central Institute graduate Jordan Kennedy with the tough loss. Kennedy allowed five runs (one earned) in six innings.

St. Joseph’s 1-2, Thomas 0-1: Jake Chamblee and Messalonskee grad Eric Sucy each threw gems but the Terriers couldn’t get their offense going and lost a doubleheader to the Monks in Standish.

Chad Rafferty threw a one-hitter with nine strikeouts in the opener for St. Joe’s (13-8). Jeff Richardson singled leading off the fourth to avert the no-hitter. The Monks got their only run in the bottom of the sixth when Alex Lorenc singled home Dan Achorn.

In Game 2, Richardson singled to drive in Daniel Ierardi and Rob Nutter went 3 for 3 with a double. But the Monks got two unearned runs, the last in the sixth on a walk by Brandon Chase, a passed ball and an RBI single by Alex Markakis.
