The Bemidji State University softball team dropped a pair of games Monday at the National Training Center in Clermont, Fla.
The Beavers fell 11-1 to Georgian Court University in five innings to open the day. In the second game, BSU lost 3-0 to West Virginia Wesleyan College.
On Sunday BSU began its southern trip with two wins, nipping Hannibal-LaGrange 2-1 and stopping Simmons College 5-3.

Allison Roberts took the pitching loss against Georgian Court. The freshman gave up eight earned runs on eight hits in 2.2 innings.
Summer Monsrud scored Bemidji's run as she singled in the fourth, stole second, gained third on an error and scored on a ground ball.
On Sunday BSU used strong pitching and late inning heroics to win the two games.
Crystal Bowen's walk-off hit bounced off the wall six inches underneath the outfield fence and lifted the Beavers past Hannibal while Kayla Babinski hit a two-run home run in the top of the sixth inning to vault the Beavers over Simmons College.
