Fode had seven hits in 13 at-bats for a .538 average, knocked in six RBI, scored six runs and added a stolen base. The highlight of her week came in Huntington's 12-8 win over Robert Morris when she went 3-4 at the plate with three RBI and three runs scored.

Cody Hannie, an English Education major from Ft. Wayne, Indiana (Snider High School), provided one of the Foresters' highlights in their four-team invitational on Saturday. Hannie trailed Bethel College's Matt Wells coming into the final turn of the men's 1500 meter run, but out-sprinted his opponent to edge Wells at the finish by 5/100th of a second for the win. Hannie crossed the line in 4:16.4 with Wells following in 4:16.9. Hannie also added a third place finish in the 800 meter run with a time of 2:02.4.
