“This weekend was probably the best I’ve seen the ball all year,” said Collett. “I tweaked one thing in practice this week. I had been putting a lot of pressure on myself and this weekend I was more relaxed. The whole team hit the ball really well.”
Collett had a pair of singles, scored two runs and drove in one. Nicole Frazer had a two-run double to go with her three-run homer for five RBIs. Taylar Kelso had a successful squeeze bunt in the first, a double in the second and an RBI single in the third.
Rachel Fiscus, a freshman pitcher from Brownsburg, threw a perfect fifth inning in relief of Frazier.
“Rachel did a nice job for us today closing it out,” said Holloway. “Our whole pitching staff performed well. Hannah Belvo got us a big win on Friday so we didn’t have to use Sami in two games that day.”
The Ravens finished conference play with an 18-1 record and will take a 29-7 overall mark into the NCAA tournament. Each of the other three teams in the conference tourney got to play a game against the Ravens and none of them scored as much as a third as many runs as AU in any game. For the tournament the Ravens scored 29 runs and gave up 8.
