CALDWELL, Idaho - After Walla Walla University's softball team swept Boise State's club team Thursday in Boise to start a southern Idaho road trip, the Wolves ran into hot-hitting Treasure Valley Community College team that pounded out 25 hits to sweep a pair of wins Friday.

The Wolves got a complete game from Ashley Martinez in the circle as the Wolves opened Thursday with a 7-4 win over Boise. WWU pounded out 16 hits and Kristy Hernandez went the distance as WWU completed the sweep with an 18-12 win in the night cap.

On Friday in Caldwell, the Chukars exploded for 11 third-inning runs to take a 15-1 decision in the opener. Treasure Valley kept pounding the ball and completed the sweep with a 13-0 win in the second game.

"We had a slugfest on Thursday, and Treasure Valley had one on Friday," WWU coach Mike Jimenez said. "Treasure Valley can flat-out hit. Our pitchers hit their spots, (but) they (TVCC) just hit and we didn't."

WWU drops to 5-9 on the year and will host the University of Idaho club team at noon March 29.
