Shenandoah 7-9, Mary Baldwin 0-0
STAUNTON -- Visiting Shenandoah University registered a pair of shutouts on Tuesday in a USA South Conference softball doubleheader with Mary Baldwin.
Shenandoah (15-12-1, 7-7 USA South) was a 7-0 winner in the opener before taking the nightcap, 9-0.

Center fielder Jolisa Jones drove in the final two runs with a triple into the right-center gap while Lauren Wall, Lauren McCabe and Catherine Pruiett had RBI singles.

Over struck out seven and walked two in the first five innings before Stegemiller retired the final six hitters in order to complete the no-hitter.
Game 2 was a virtual replay of the opener as Shenandoah scored all nine of its runs in the first inning and then pitchers Amanda Litwin (7-6) and Stegemiller tossed a two-hitter.
