BOSTON – Lauren Webb had two triples and four RBI in the second game of a softball doubleheader Thursday, leading the University of New England to an 11-3 win over Wentworth Institute of Technology.

Wentworth (11-18, 4-12 Commonwealth Coast) won the opener 4-1 on a three-run homer by Lizz Harvey in the bottom of the eighth.

UNE (19-9, 12-4) was held to four hits in the opener but produced 14 hits and was helped by six errors in the second game. Marie Mantelli homered, and Maegan Johnson had three hits and scored three runs.


CENTRAL MAINE C.C. 4, SOUTHERN MAINE C.C. 1: Kyle Mullins scattered five hits over seven innings and finished with nine strikeouts to lead Central Maine Community College over Southern Maine C.C. (16-16) at South Portland.

Kyle Bussiere knocked in two runs for the Mustangs, and Justin Stairs added an RBI single.

Colby Montana singled home Matt Findlay in the sixth inning for the Seawolves.


SOUTHERN MAINE 10, CURRY 9: Mary Vaughan scored the tie-breaking goal with 6:29 remaining, and the Huskies (6-6) held off the Colonels (9-4) in Gorham.

USM got five of the last six goals after trailing 8-5 with 20 minutes left. Kristy Kendrick had two goals and two assists for the Huskies.

COLBY 15, COLORADO COLLEGE 5: Lane McVey and Amy Campbell each had three goals as the White Mules (9-2) handled the Tigers (7-3) at Waterville.

Caroline Atwater and Kathleen Kramer each added two goals.


MAINE: Ashleigh Roberts, a 5-foot-9 guard from Concord High in Wilmington, Del., signed a letter of intent to play for the Black Bears.

Roberts is her school’s all-time leading scorer and ranks eighth in the state among girls with 1,646 career points. She averaged 23 points and 10 rebounds last season and was an all-state first team selection. She was also a McDonald’s All-America nominee.


BAYLOR: LaceDarius Dunn, the team’s leading scorer, is returning for his senior season.

Dunn, a 6-foot-4 guard, ended any speculation that he would bypass his final year and declare for the NBA draft like 6-foot-10 power forward Ekpe Udoh did two days earlier.

“I knew everybody was holding their breath wondering what I was going to do,” Dunn said. “I think I made the right decision.”

The Bears (28-8) set a school record for victories and got within one win of making their first Final Four appearance in 60 years. Dunn was a second-time All-Big 12 pick while averaging 19.6 points and 4.8 rebounds and setting school records for points (704), 3-pointers (116) and free-throw percentage (85.7).
