NEW ALBANY — The IU Southeast softball team battered Brescia 14-1 and 10-2 in a sweep of the Bearcats on Tuesday.

Jade Detzer went 3-for-3 and had four RBI and scored two runs. Morgan Klosterman went 2-for-3 with a double and three RBI.

In Game 2, Katelyn Heines opened the scoring with a two-run double in the bottom of the first. Batliner opened the bottom of the third with a solo home run to center off the scoreboard support for her sixth home run of the year.

The Grenadiers put the game away by scoring four runs in the bottom of the fourth.

Jessica Leanhart (15-2) gave up a home run to Harbold in the top of the fourth, and surrendered a run in the fifth but otherwise had a solid outing. She gave up six hits and struck out seven in a complete-game win.
