    Last weekend, the Hoosiers opened up their 40th season of softball at the Kajikawa Classic hosted by Arizona State, Feb. 8-9. Indiana went 2-3 with dominant wins over both Bradley (15-7 in five innings) and Portland State (7-0), and suffered losses at the hands of No. 4 Arizona State, No. 21 Stanford and No. 3 California. 

    Through the first five games of the season, the Hoosiers posted a batting average of .317 - good for third-best of any B1G squad. Also ranking in the top-five amonst Big Ten teams are slugging percentage (.447-third), runs scored (25-fourth), on-base percentage (.371-fifth), hits (39-T-fourth), RBI (24-fourth), triples (2-second), total bases (55-fourth), walks drawn (12-fifth) and sacrifice flies (6-first). Breanna Saucedo and Brianna Meyer posted averages of .500 (T-fourth amonst B1G hitters) in Tempe, going 9-for-18 and 6-for-12 at the plate, respectively. Saucedo strung together four consecutive multi-hit games, while Meyer hit safely in every contest and led the Hoosiers with seven RBI. Freshman Kassi Farmer shined in her debut, going 6-for-15 (.400) in her first collegiate weekend with five RBI, two doubles and a homerun for a healthy .733 slugging percentage.

    In the circle, the Hoosiers’ staff picked up wins agaisnt Bradley and Portland State. Meaghan Murphy (1-1) tossed 5.0 innings in the win against Bradley, striking out five and allowed just three earned runs. Lora Olson (1-1) picked up her third career shutout in Indiana’s win over Portland State. The sophomore struck out two in seven flawless innings. 

    A few members of the IU softball squad are moving up the ranks in several all-time career catagories. Breanna Saucedo currently ranks 10th (.330) for career batting average. Saucedo also needs 17 more runs to tie for ninth on the all-time runs scored list. Amanda Wagner is nearing several offensive catagories as well, as the senior needs to drive in just 13 RBI this season to tie for ninth all-time.  Wagner is also 12 walks away from climing into fifth place in the IU career record books.
