The Cougars swept the season series against Utah State 5-0 and have won three consecutive games after losing five in a row.

In game one of the doubleheader, sophomore Oli Keohohou powered the Cougars to a come from behind victory with a 7th inning grand slam. The home run is her 15th of the season as she finished the game 2-2 with five RBI and three walks. The Cougars were down one run going into the seventh, but Brooke Cadiente scored on a wild pitch to tie the game before Keohohou put the game out of reach.

Senior Kari Pringle went 3-4 with two runs scored. Shortstop Kate Walker went 3-2 with a run and a walk. Sophomore Ariel Capra (9-4) got the win giving up three earned runs.

Keohohou was intentionally walked to advance Johnson to second. Liz VanderLinded grounded out but advanced the runners. Johnson scored on a wild pitch to tie the game 2-2 with one out. Keohohou scored the winning run off an error on the pitcher to win the game and finished 2-3 with one RBI. Jill Roberts went 2-3 and scored.
