Virginia Splits Doubleheader against Iowa State

TAMPA, Fla. - Iowa State's Becky Coberg had an RBI double and later scored to spark a two-run fourth inning as Iowa State downed Virginia, 2-0, in the first game of a doubleheader played in Tampa.

In the nightcap, UVa's Christy Quinn (2x3, 2 RBI) singled in a pair of runs as Virginia earned a split with a 3-0 victory over the Cyclones.

Kristi Fox picked up her first collegiate win for the Cavaliers by tossing the complete-game shutout.
