Mixsell delivered the game-winning home run to spark the top-ranked Wildcats to a 7-6 victory over the seventh-ranked Lutes in Game 1 of the doubleheader. Over four games this week, including two nonconference tilts against Redlands, she registered a .545 (6-for-11) batting average and .818 slugging percentage with four RBI. Linfield avenged its only two losses of the year to PLU with its twinbill sweep of the Lutes and, more importantly, vaulted back into first place in the conference standings.
