Dixie State University plowed its way through game one against Notce Dame de Namur University by putting up 11 runs in the first four innings before a mercy rule came into play and kept the Argonauts scoreless in game two. "Game one, I thought our bats were hot; I mean I feel like I struggled a little bit at the plate, but I thought we had a great game, and we hit the ball consecutively," said senior shortstop Josey Hartman, an integrated studies major from Mapleton. DSU brought in runs on singles and with triples along taking advantage of the five fielding errors by NDNU. NDNU switched pitchers the middle of game one and kept the same pitcher into game two where the Trailblazers were unable to score until the fourth inning. "We hit the NDNU pitcher really hard at the end of the first game but didn't make great adjustments to start game two, hitting a few balls right at people," head coach Randy Simkins said.

The Trailblazers got things started Thursday by the putting up 12 runs in first game of the series.

Runners on the Dixie State University women's track team participated at the Utah Weber State Spring Classic Friday and Saturday, which was held at Utah State University Friday and Weber State University Saturday. Although several program records were set and personal records were broken, the DSU runners fell behind the competition for almost every race.

Head coach Justin Decker, who is also the cross county coach in the fall, said his only goals for the women's track team is to improve during each meet. "This is our first season with the track team, so we are not too focused on competing right now," Decker said. "We're instead focusing on improving and growing our program."

Senior pitcher Mason Hilty and junior pitcher Matt Mosca each threw complete-gam- e shutouts. Hilty allowed six hits and allowed only one walk while Mosca surrendered just five hits and one free pass. "We pitched the heck out of it this weekend," head coach Chris Pfatenhauer said.

Four other Trailblazers had two hits each as DSU cruised to an 0 win. Redshirt senior Drew McLaughlin went 4 to lead the Trailblazers' offense.

DSU slammed the door on the Urban Knights in the 2-- 5-- 0. DSU ninth inning and notched the victory, "It's good to come home after a tough series and get four big wins," McLaughlin said. "Hopefully we can stay hot as we head to Hawaii." With the wins, DSU moves to 18-- 6 in the Pacific West Conference. The Trailblazers sit in second place behind Azusa Pacific Unia team DSU will versity face in the final four games of the regular season. "These wins put us in a 6-- 2. good position mathematically to win the conference," Pfatenhauer said. "More importantly though, it gets our minds right. It gives us a good feeling heading into the final 12 games on the road." DSU enters a bye week but will travel to Hawaii and resume play April 21 against Hawaii Pacific University followed by a series against the University before the of Hawaii-Hil- o showdown with APU May 8.
