The Wisconsin softball team opened its fall season with a 3-2 record at the Chicagoland Classic in Orland Park, Ill., last weekend.
Wisconsin gave up five runs in five games. The Badgers defeated Bradley 1-0 Friday night, as freshman catcher/infielder Joey Daniels hit a RBI single at the top of the sixth inning, bringing senior shortstop Kris Zacher home. Wisconsin dropped its first game Saturday, falling 2-1 to Loyola-Chicago, as the Ramblers took an early 2-0 lead in the second inning.
The Badgers had more luck against Western Illinois, holding the Leathernecks scoreless while racking up four runs of their own. Rookie pitcher Ricci Robben pitched her first UW shutout win.
Wisconsin continued to flourish offensively, putting up a 7-1 win over Northern Iowa Sunday but fell to Valparaiso 2-1 in the final game of the tournament.
Wisconsin will host UW-Green Bay in a doubleheader Saturday at 11 a.m.
