CLEARWATER, Fla. - Saint Joseph's freshman Sarah Ostaszewski connected on her first collegiate home run, but the Hawks fell to Wisconsin, 3-2, and Oklahoma State, 5-0, Saturday at the Michele Smith Pediatric Cancer Invitational.

Versus the Badgers in the opener, Wisconsin jumped out to a 2-0 lead with a pair of runs in the bottom of the third.

The Hawks (0-4) answered back in the top of the fourth with a pair of their own to tie the game at 2-2. Ostaszewski led off the inning with a solo home run, while Stacey Mayer singled home Raelynn Genovese four batters later.

Unfortunately for SJU, Wisconsin struck for a run in the bottom of the fourth to regain the lead, 3-2, and held on from there.

For the game, Ostaszewski went 2-for-3, while Mayer and Genovese accounted for the other two SJU runs.

In the circle, Abigail Stroud went three innings and allowed two runs on four hits and struck out one, but didn't factor in the decision.Rookie Ashley Stokes allowed one run on one hit in relief, but was the hard-luck loser.

In the nightcap, Oklahoma State scored once in the second and four times in the fourth to take a 5-0 lead.

The Hawks threatened in the seventh, but the Cowgirls held on for the victory.

Genovese led SJU's offense in game two as she finished 2-for-3. Sophomore Ashley Ventura allowed five runs over 3.2 innings in a losing effort. Senior Niki Carillo scattered two hits over 2.1 innings of relief and struck out one.

The Hawks cap play at this weekend's tournament on Sunday versus nationally ranked James Madison at 11:45 a.m.
