The Marist Red Foxes swept a MAAC doubleheader over the Niagara Purple Eagles Saturday in Lewiston, New York.

Game one was all Marist all the time as they pounded out 20 hits. Junior Kyrsten Van Natta actually had a slow start in this game with a simple fly out for her first at bat. After that she would hit safely seven consecutive times in the doubleheader, and in this game would hit for the cycle. First a triple, then a home run, then a single, then a double. In all, she drove home five runs. She wasn't the only one who had a great game. Colleen McWilliams had her best outing as a college player, hitting a perfect 4 for 4 with three RBIs. She had six consecutive hits in the doubleheader. Becca Freeman also had herself a four hit game. Melanie White never gave Niagara a chance, striking out eight batters for the win.

Game two was more of the same; even more so. Sam Reilly led the way with a home run and four RBIs; she had three hits in the game. Kyrsten Van Natta and Becca Freeman each had three hits, with Colleen McWilliams adding a pair of to her total. Marist collected a total of 14 hits, with Jayne Oberdorf cruising to an easy win.

Marist improved to 4-2 in the MAAC; Niagara fell to 1-5.
