The Iowa softball team (10-13) finished its string of distant road games this past weekend while competing in the Judi Garman Classic. The event featured seven teams and was scheduled to span March 15-17 in Fullerton, Calif.

The team was slated to play No. 11 Louisiana-Lafayette and California State-Fullerton on March 17, but the double-header was canceled by torrential rainfall.

Iowa opened the tournament with two losses, falling to Notre Dame, 2-0, and 4-3 to No. 3 Washington. Iowa had pinch-hitter Tor Hawley up to bat with two runners on in the bottom of the seventh, but Hawley grounded out to the pitcher to end the threat.

The squad got its only win of the trip the following day with a 2-0 win over Virginia; Melanie Gladden smacked a two-run double to give the Hawkeyes the victory.

Iowa let three errors lead to 3 unearned runs in its following game, a 6-1 defeat at the hands of No. 13 Arizona.

The Black and Gold will travel to Columbia, Mo., on Wednesday to face No. 12 Missouri in a double-header.
