The Shippensburg University softball team used a pair of big innings to achieve a doubleheader sweep of Mercyhurst on Saturday, defeating the Lakers by scores of 5-2 and 6-3 in non-conference action at Robb Field.

Shippensburg (19-13) scored three runs in the bottom of the fourth inning in Game 1 on a two-run homer by Hannah Marsteller (her league-leading 17th of the season) and a solo shot by Courtney Coy, and plated four runs in the bottom of the fifth inning in Game 2. Both innings resulted in leads that would not be relinquished.
