ATHERTON, Calif. – Menlo College Softball was set to play the NCAA Div. II Notre Dame de Namur Argonauts on Friday in a double header but a less-than-stellar forecast shifted it to Thursday, and turned into a single game. This meant a split doubleheader on the afternoon with Menlo taking on GSAC-rival Arizona Christian later in the afternoon. Menlo used timely hitting in game one and dominant pitching in game two to sweep both ends of the makeshift-doubleheader and pick up to clutch wins. Menlo now sits at 19-15 on the year and 5-8 in conference play.
