Shelby Engle is on a hitting tear through 14 games, Saturday she ripped her eighth and ninth home runs of the season. The junior is tied for the all-time home run season record four games shy of midway through this year.

She tied the record in the top of the sixth of a 14-5 mercy-rule win Saturday at St. Catharine College. The Tigers (8-6, 7-3) scored at least a run in every inning but the fifth, hitting five more home runs as a team for 17 on the weekend.

"I'm a little speechless about it all," said GC coach Thomas Thornton. "I knew this team was capable of really hitting the ball well, but 26 home runs and 30 doubles with a .373 team batting average is amazing."
