DES MOINES – The Raven Softball team took to the road to start the final week of the regular season on Monday as they took on No. 21 Grand View University.
Grand View (39-11, 27-7 Heart) took the doubleheader in two five-innings games over Benedictine (19-24, 11-19 Heart), 8-0 and 11-2.
Nikki McNeil suffered the loss, giving up six earned runs off nine hits with three strikeouts.
In game two, the Ravens offense came off the bat of Chris Flucke. She connected on a two-run home run in the first inning but that was all the offense that Benedictine could generate.
The Ravens return home on Wednesday for a 2 p.m. doubleheader against Graceland University at the BC Softball Field.
