Madison's Paige Whisler took the loss, striking out two with two walks and giving up 11 runs on nine hits. The Lady Rams defensive unit didn't help the cause, combining for three errors in the field.

With the win Clear Fork improves to 8-3 overall, 3-2 in conference, while Madison slips to 4-2, 4-1 in the OCC.

On the baseball field, Madison upended the Colts 12-4 for their seventh straight win after dropping the season opener.
