EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (Blugolds.com) - The UW-Eau Claire softball team was the lone team in action today, hosting UW-Stout in a doubleheader in the Blugolds' home opener.
UW-Stout 8, UW-Eau Claire 6
UW-Stout 8, UW-Eau Claire 3 (9 Innings)
It's been a long time since the UW-Eau Claire softball team has played a game at Gelein Field, their actual home field. Last season weather forced all of the home games to be played at Bollinger Field, and this spring, the weather has been rather unkind again, forcing the Blugolds back to Bollinger Field for their doubleheader matchup with UW-Stout. The Blugolds fell in a shootout in game one, 8-6, and in game two, it was the Blue Devils that were victorious again, this time in extra innings, with an 8-4 win.
