CLERMONT, Fla. --- The Colby College softball team was held to one hit in each game as the Mules fell to Wellesley College and University of Chicago in non-conference play Monday in Florida.

The Mules (1-3) fell 6-1 to Wellesley in the first game of the day and then dropped a 3-0 decision to Chicago.

Kelly Roth had the lone hit in the first game and drove in a run. Lizzi Fort walked to lead off the second inning, moved to second on a wild pitch, took third on a sacrifice bunt by Katie Graichen, and scored when Roth had a single to right field. Colby had one more good opportunity to score after Alyssa Lepore reached on an error and made it to third base with just two outs, but the Mules could not drive her in for a second run.

Lauren Becker worked her second complete game of the trip and allowed four earned runs. She walked two and had no strikeouts while allowing eight hits.

In the second game, Chicago had had lone runs in the first, fourth, and fifth innings to pull out the victory. No other information was available.
