   Softball took on Texas A&M-International April 6 in a non-conference doubleheader in Laredo.
   Game one saw sophomore pitcher Brandy Marlett record her second career no-hitter in a 9-0 run rule victory. Freshman infielder Becky Wilhelm and sophomore Kenedy Urbany both recorded home runs for the Belles in game one. In game two, the Belles earned a 6-5 extra-inning victory. Sophomore Morgan Hill started in the circle for the Belles before making way for Marlett a little over two innings into the game. Marlett and Hill combined for seven strikeouts in the win.  After falling behind a 2-0 deficit in the third inning, the Belles hit back in the fourth inning and took a 4-2 lead.
   In the fifth inning with the bases loaded, freshman infielder Alexis Evans was hit by a pitch to score Madison Greenwell from third and pushed the lead to 5-2. The Dustdevils tied the score at five apiece in the sixth inning. After a scoreless seventh inning, senior third baseman Lanie Robinson hit a sacrifice fly to score Urbany from third to put the Belles on top at 6-5 in the eighth inning. Marlett and the Belle defense shut down the Dustdevil offense in the eighth inning to preserve the win for the Belles.

Next the Belles will travel to Commerce on April 15 and 16 for a four game series with Texas A&M-Commerce.
