Enduring her longest winless dry season, Lady Saints ace Monique Ashley returned to herself Saturday, turning a three hit shutout in a 3-0 Seward win in diversion one of the doubleheader against Colby before the Lady Trojans replied with a 6-2 win at Lady Saints Field.

Seward came out strong in diversion one, getting three straight hits to start. Seward had a RBI single from Kristyna Garcia that put the Lady Saints up 1-0 preceding their first out of the diversion. A Colby blunder permitted Seward to score their second. Leena Mortensen added another to make it a 3-0 diversion for the Lady Saints after one.
