Knocking off the nation's 13th ranked team the last time on the field, Monday at Cougar Field the Barton Community College softball team found itself in a dogfight, coming out with a doubleheader split against Division II region foe Hesston College.
The Cougars trailed 4-0 after the Larks' first at-bat before retaking the lead in the third to go on to the 9-6 game one victory. In game two, Barton's 1-0 lead was buried as Hesston scored five in each of the second and third frames to hold on for the 13-9 doubleheader split.
The day's results leaves Barton at 13-12 on the year with Hesston moving to 6-7.
Barton returns to conference play on Wednesday for a 2:00 p.m. first pitch at Dodge City Community College before returning to Cougar Field in Saturday's 1:00 p.m. doubleheader against Northwest Kansas Technical College.
