Riding the arm of junior pitcher Kiley Lythberg, the Central College softball team secured a sweep of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Saturday afternoon. Consecutive complete games by Lythberg guided the Dutch to wins of 5-3 and 5-0, and made it three wins this month over the Bluegolds.
Central, which is ranked No. 11 in the nation in the latest NFCA poll, had previously defeated Wisconsin-Eau Claire 2-0 in Panama City on March 13th. The Dutch are 14-5 and will need to maintain their high level of play next weekend, as they travel to Cedar Rapids to face last year’s Division III runner-up – Coe College.
