Production was spread out for the Knox College softball team as eight of nine starters notched base hits in a 7-2 win over MacMurray College last weekend.
Six different players plated runs for the Prairie Fire while sophomore Karli Shields carried the team in the circle with just one earned run in seven innings of work. The win was Shields’ first of the season and the Prairie Fire are now 2-18 this season.
Knox takes a break from South division play this weekend as they head to Peoria, Ill. to take part in the Midwest Conference Crossover Tournament. The Prairie Fire went 1-4 in the tournament last season.
