Statesmen swept in DH at SWIC
What was supposed to be two games turned out to be nearly the equivalent of three for Lincoln Trail College's baseball team in their Great Rivers Athletic Conference doubleheader at Southwestern Illinois Monday (April 1).

After being rained out twice over the weekend, the Statesmen finally took the field Monday and decided they needed to play more than the 16 scheduled regulation innings. In fact, they almost played that many innings in game one. Unfortunately, none of those extra innings helped the Statesmen find the win column. Lincoln Trail forged a late rally to force extra innings before eventually dropping an 7-6 decision in 15 innings, then lost 5-1 in game two.
