STEVENSVILLE — Teresa Piazzola was in mid-season form and then some Tuesday afternoon.

Piazzola walked four and held the Yellowjackets to one hit — a single by Bayleigh Ravenscroft — both runs were unearned.

Piazzola also had a big day at the plate, going 3 for 4 with a double and two runs batted in.

Sophomore first baseman Mollie Peoples also went 3 for 4, while McKenzie Gallagher went 2 for 4. Kloie Thatcher and Megan Michelotti added doubles for the Maroons, Shawnee Hjelt, Emily St. John, Taylor Wahl and Corbyn Holm each hit a single.

The Maroons, who improved to 1-2 overall, will play their first home games on Saturday when Hamilton and Corvallis come to town.
