Ursuline took home a 4-1 victory over Gilmour Academy on Monday.
Mia Opalick toed the rubber for Ursuline. The ace lasted five and a third innings, allowing five hits and one run while striking out seven. Emily Holland came on in relief. She got the final 5 outs for the Irish to seal up the win and earn the save.
Alyssa Sheely led Ursuline with two hits in three at bats. She also broke up the Lancers no hit bid in the fourth and eventually came around to score the first run of the game. Irish freshman Arrianna Wendt hit a RBI double in the fifth. It was her first extra base hit, and RBI of her career.
Ursuline opens tournament play on Tuesday as they play Campbell at Liberty Township Park.
