The Iowa softball team split a pair of games in Tucson, Ariz., and the weather canceled two other scheduled games.

The Hawks started the weekend off well with an 8-0 victory against Valparaiso on Feb 28.

Iowa broke a scoreless tie in the third inning when it put up 6 runs. Seven of the 8 runs the Hawkeyes scored with two outs.

Michelle Zoeller, Megan Blank, and Erin Erickson all recorded two hits for Iowa.

Kayla Massey recorded her second win of the season with the shutout.

After inclement weather caused two games on March 1 to be canceled, the team resumed play Sunday morning and fell to Longwood, 4-1.

Shayla Starkenburg took the loss, but she did tie her career high in strikeouts with 5.

Massey and Blank also contributed two hits apiece, but the Hawks could only score 1 run.

“It was nice to see [Massey and Blank] come around, because we’ve got to have them … it’s good to see them put good wood on the ball,” head coach Marla Looper said in a press release.
