The Alexandria softball team got a little closer to .500 after a nice ending to its week on Saturday.

The Cardinals won two out of three games at the Rockford Tournament a day after taking care of St. Cloud Apollo in a doubleheader sweep by scores of 8-3 and 14-8. Wins at the tournament came in an 11-4 victory over Greenway and a 5-3 game against Visitation around a 12-8 loss to Rockford. The Cardinals are now 6-8 overall after winning four of five.

The two wins over Apollo were the first in the Central Lakes Conference for Alexandria. Taylor Sayre had three hits, three RBIs and two runs in the 14-8 win. Sydney Christenson had three hits, a run and an RBI in the 8-3 win, while Carly Burns doubled twice and drove in three runs.
