With that victory, the Lady Knights improve to 11-7 overall on the season and now sit at 7-6 in the conference.

Cristianna Boggs continued to tear up opposing pitchers, connecting for four singles on the day to go along with three runs scored, an RBI and four stolen bases. Maddie Hoverland also racked up a multi-hit game, belting a home run, a single, driving in two and scoring three times.
