Montana is just better when Delene Colburn, who was named the Big Sky Conference Player of the Week on Monday for the second time this season and fifth time in her career, is rolling, which seems to be more often than not.
Colburn, a senior, scored the game-winning run in Montana’s 5-3 victory against Weber State and batted .455 in the series against Southern Utah, driving in five, scoring twice and hitting her first home run since March 17.
In the series opener against Southern Utah, a 4-1 Montana victory, Colburn had an RBI single in the seventh as the Grizzlies scored three times to pull away.
Colburn went 3 for 4, with three RBIs and two runs scored in the second game of Friday’s doubleheader, a 5-3 victory. Colburn’s solo home run to lead off the third tied the game at 1-1, and her two-run single in the sixth helped Montana increase its lead to three.
