Blugolds head coach Leslie Huntington was proud of the way her team fought to get two big conference wins.
"I told them, I said, 'This is River Falls-Eau Claire. This is not going to be easy.' I told them that there are just days and opponents that you just have to grind out," Huntington said. "You've just got to grind it and grind it and grind it and hopefully you come out on top. This was certainly one of those days. They just stuck with it, we got some key hits and key runs and ended up with the doubleheader sweep."
