In game one against Jefferson, the Lady Pirates fell by a score of 8-4, with Jessica Cook going 2-for-4 with a double, and Michelle Patton contributing a 1-for-2 day with a double and two RBI's for North Central. Jessica Cook took the pitching loss.

In the second game against JeffCo, the Lady Pirates hit the ball early and often, drilling their region rivals by a score of 11-3. Jordan Cottengim picked up the pitching victory, with Lindsay Derry going 3-for-4 with two doubles, two RBI's, and a walk-off double in the fifth inning. Cottengim twirled five innings, picked up three runs, five hits, and striking out three.

NCMC continued to pummel the softball against St. Charles, winning game one by a final score of 12-6, rallying for the win with four runs in the fifth, and six runs in the sixth inning. North Central had trailed 6-1 going into the bottom of the fourth. A Shelby Salter two-run single was one of the offensive highlights in the Lady Pirates surge, while Trenton native Scotlin Hurley had a two-for-three day with four RBI's, two walks, and two run scored. Christine McCoy was one-for-four with two RBI's and a home run.

In game two, the Lady Pirates pushed their overall record to 12-11, and their Region 16 mark to an impressive 6-2, courtesy of a 9-3 blasting of St. Charles. A Hurley triple, followed by a double by Jennifer Stock got NCMC on the board in the bottom of the first inning, with Stock driven home on an RBI single by Macie Kinsey. North Central put the contest in the bank with a seven-run second inning, including back-to-back home runs by Stock and Lowery. Hurley picked up the pitching win with seven innings of nine-hit softball, giving up three runs, walking three, and striking out three.

North Central was to play the Missouri Valley JV on Monday (today), but a mix-up in scheduling has moved that doubleheader to Tuesday at 2 o'clock, at Mark Griffin Memorial Field in Trenton.

The North Central baseball team, in a four-game homestand against Three Rivers Community College this weekend, salvaged Sunday's final game at Burleigh Grimes Field, winning by a score of 7-3. The Pirates bats struggled for most of the weekend, with Three Rivers taking 3-1 and 5-3 wins on Saturday, and opening Sunday's doubleheader with a 4-1 win. The Pirates record is now 9-16. North Central travels to Lexington on Tuesday to play the Wentworth Red Dragons in a 1 o'clock doubleheader.
