CLERMONT, Fla. – Point Park University junior Kim Corcoran hit her first home run of the season, but the Pioneers could not string together enough runs and lost to Calumet (Ind.) College, 6-0, and Cleary (Mich.) University, 8-5, Thursday at the Spring Games.

Against Cleary (7-2), the Pioneers fared better at the plate, but still suffered an 8-5 loss.
Brittany Zeigler was 3-for-4 with an RBI, and Corcoran hit a three-run home run in the bottom of the first to put the Pioneers up, 3-0.
Cleary scored four runs in both the fourth and fifth innings, making the score 8-3. Point Park rallied in the bottom of the fifth to add two more runs, but could not recoup the deficit.
