For the season, Parsons is 12-for-18 (.667 BA) with three walks (.714 OBP) and owns a team-best 1.770 on-base-plus-slugging percentage (OPS). Stephanie Sobolewski went 2-for-2 with a double and two RBI. Meanwhile Gwen Svekis went 1-for-1 with two walks and an RBI.

Thursday, March 8: MCARTHUR, W 7-4 (7-1): With the Raiders down 1-0 in the fourth inning, Victoria Stock hit a key two-out double. After Morgan Biddle pushed her to third with a single, Stock scored on a wild pitch, tying the score.
