Mount Marty College clinched their first berth in the GPAC Softball Post-Season Tournament in 14 years with a doubleheader split against Northwestern last night at Riverside Park.  The Lancers won the opener 9-5 as Erin Boyle drove in three runs and Bianca Minor and Jill Orwig combined to pitch the victory.  The Raiders took the nightcap with a 5-0 shutout.  Mount Marty is 9 and 9 and tied for sixth place in the conference and they close the regular season with a twin bill at Morningside on Saturday.
