It wasn’t the start McPherson College’s softball team was hoping for on the first day of its own invitational tournament at Wall Park.

Mac lost 12-9 to Avila and 16-1 to Benedictine to fall to 4-16 on the season.

A five-run second inning by Avila was the difference in Game 1. The Bulldogs struggled in the field with six errors.

Katie Holmes was terrific in defeat by going 4 for 4 with four RBIs.

The Bulldogs were never in the game with Benedictine, which scored 10 runs in the first two innings.

Mac had seven hits, two apiece by Emily Davis and Simone Donaldson.

The Bulldogs play two more games today.
