Whitney Poole and Kristin Schmidt each went 4-for-5 at the plate with three runs scored. Schmidt had a home run and finished with five RBIs for the Tigers. Joy Vasa added two RBIs for Doane.
Jennifer Liddell picked up the victory despite allowing six runs in 1.2 innings of work. Vasa took the mound three batters into the seventh inning and finished off the Prairie Wolves for the save.
Doane will travel to Yankton, S.D., to take on Mount Marty College on March 30. This game was originally scheduled for March 29 but has been moved due to weather conditions.
