Maryland softball made the trip to Iowa City, Iowa over this past weekend to take on the Iowa Hawkeyes in a three-game series, and the Terps returned to College Park having won two of those three contests. They won the first game, 5-2, and the second, 2-0, before dropping the series finale, 2-1, on Sunday.

Maryland’s pitching remained strong in the series, allowing only four total runs and pitching a shutout in Saturday’s win. Standout senior Courtney Wyche pitched all 7 innings of the shutout. Wyche also threw 6 13 innings the next day, giving up two earned runs to put her ERA for the series at 1.06.

The series win moved the Terps’ record to 6-8 in Big Ten play and 29-13 overall. They will take on UMBC on Wednesday before another conference weekend series at home against Penn State, starting Friday.
