Junior pitcher Angela Hartwig of Long Grove picked up wins in both ends of the doubleheader and senior infielders Ashley Steines of Camanche and Ashley Rogers of Dubuque each belted home runs, leading No. 10-ranked Wartburg to a 3-2, 5-2 sweep of the University of Dubuque Sunday.
Wartburg coach Kare Kehe was happy with their performance, as she says Dubuque played well too. She says they hung in well through the first game that went extra innings.
Hartwig threw the final 5 innings of Wartburg’s extra-inning win in the opener. She threw another five innings to start the nightcap, getting the victory in both games. She’s now 11-1 on the season, and 47-6 for her career. Kehe says Hartwig was the ace last year and they are depending on her again this year.
