DANVILLE, Ky. – After a quick turnaround from Friday night's doubleheader, the Colonels dropped a 14-3 series finale Saturday morning against seventh-ranked Berry.
Centre closes the regular season 17-16 overall and 9-9 in the Southern Athletic Association, and will be either the three- or four-seed in the upcoming conference tournament. The Vikings cap their regular season 33-4 overall and 16-1 in-conference.
Berry capitalized on some Centre miscues to score two unearned in the top of the first and open the scoring.
The Vikings added a pair of runs in the second and third, taking a 6-1 lead after a two-run homer from Katlin Seger.
Berry's offensive prowess was evident once again in the fourth, scoring six runs while smacking a couple more homeruns.
Cook went 2-for-3 at the plate as the designated player, and Stephens finished 2-for-2.
The Colonels will travel to Chattanooga, Tenn., next weekend for the SAA Tournament. Stay tuned for matchups and game times.
