Freshman Kayla Curtan went 3-3 on the day to help the Cards beat the Yaks in five innings with a score of 8-0.  In game two, the Cardinals jumped ahead quickly scoring early in the game. Sophomore Emily Aspden went 2-3 at the plate as well as sophomore, and Coeur d'Alene High School alumni Ana Raynor. Freshman Kennedy Anderson went 3-4 at the plate with 3 RBI’s to help with the 12-4 victory.
