The Iowa softball team won its second Big Ten series this past weekend beating Wisconsin in Madison, 2-1.

The Hawkeyes improved to 9-15, 4-2 in the Big Ten, while Wisconsin drops to 16-14, 2-4 in the Big Ten.

The team adjusted to a late change that forced a double-header on March 29; Iowa split the games, winning the first, 4-1, and dropping the second, 8-4.

On Sunday, Iowa kept on rolling with a 4-1 victory and took the series from the Badgers.

Iowa enjoyed production from key players — junior Megan Blank hit her first home run of the season, and senior Kayla Massey won her fourth and fifth games of the season. Both were complete games.

“Kayla had a good game again today,” head coach Marla Looper said in a release. “She came out knowing they saw her [March 29], but because of her success against them, she was confident in what she could do to them. She paid attention to what she did yesterday, studied them and that’s why she and Holly (Hoffman) were able to come out here and attack them today.”

Iowa will face Drake at 6 p.m. Wednesday in its home-opener.
