The Point Park softball team swept Carlow University Saturday to open River States Conference (RSC) play.

The Pioneers improved to 7-10 overall and 2-0 in RSC play. Point Park also dropped a non-conference doubleheader to Gannon Thursday in its first game since spring training in Florida.

Gannon defeated Point Park 3-1 and 7-0, as the Pioneers were playing their first game in 20 days against the NCAA Division II school.

Point Park bounced back for a pair of shutout wins at Carlow two days later. Ashley Iagnemma pitched a shutout and struck out 11 in game one to lead Point Park to a 5-0 win. Kim Corcoran went 2-3 with 3 RBIs.

Tiffany Edwards tossed a one-hit shutout in an 8-0 mercy-rule victory in game two that lasted only six innings. Alyssa McMurtrie went 3-4 with 5 RBIs.

Point Park continues RSC play this weekend at Midway.
