Tiffin University's softball team went 1-2 at the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Tournament in Findlay Friday, ending its season at 27-25.
TU opened play with an eight-inning, 2-1 loss to Wayne State before bouncing back to knock off Hillsdale, 4-3. That sent the Dragons into a game with Grand Valley State, where the No. 20 Lakers shut out the Dragons, 10-0.
In the first game, Amber Young took a hard-luck loss, going 7 2/3 innings and allowing four singles and two earned runs. She struck out eight.
Lesy Herbert's pinch-hit RBI single in the seventh accounted for the Dragons only run in the loss to the Warriors.
In the win over the Chargers, TU trailed 3-2 going to the sixth before scoring twice to take the lead. Young pitched 1 1/3 innings for the win in relief, striking out a pair of batters. Abbey Cooksey started the game, going 5 2/3 innings and allowing three runs.
Amanda Temple had four hits in the win for the Dragons, while Meagan Baird and Stephanie Bobotas had two hits each. Caitlin Houk singled in a pair of runs for TU.
In the third game of the day, Grand Valley state scored three runs off TU starting pitcher Torrie Terry before she could retire a batter. Young relieved, but was unable to cool the Lakers' offense. Grand Valley State led, 7-0 after two innings and never looked back.
Earlier in the day, the Dragons learned that freshman Payton Denman had been named Second Team All-GLIAC, while Houk and Temple were named to the league's honorable mention list.
