SOFTBALL: Behind Staci Hemingway's three RBI, the Utah softball team defeated New Mexico, 4-3, on Saturday.

The two freshmen pitchers, Utah's Brittany Parker and New Mexico's Madelyn Machac, spent most of the game locked in a pitcher's dual. The Utes loaded the bases with one out in the first inning led by Kara Foster's leadoff single, but Machac forced Bonnie Muir to ground into a double play to end the inning.

The Utes (19-18, 2-2 MWC) had their own double play in the top of the fourth with two Lobos on base, as Hemingway led the charge to get outs on Analise Rubalcava and Katie Gilmore at second and first with two runners on base.
