In four games over the past weekend, Alison Ford ’11 hit two homeruns to move into a tie for third place in Bison softball history with 12 dingers. In her 13 plate appearances, she hit .583 with a .615 on base percentage.

Along with her efficiency in getting on base, she also hit for a lot of power. Her homers were also accompanied by a double to give her an impressive slugging percentage of 1.417.

Ford was integral to her team’s success this weekend, her five RBIs accounting for 42 percent of the Bison runs over the weekend series. Unfortunately, the Bison only took one of the four games, but her contributions significantly increased the level of her team’s play.
