San Jose-The Spartan softball team was swept by Boise State, 12-1 in six inning and 12-1, Saturday afternoon in a Western Athletic Conference doubleheader at SJSU Field.
In game one, San Jose State got just four hits, two from Annica Wolfe. The team's only run came in the sixth inning when Sadie Coenen doubled to right center to score Britney Helm who had singled just prior to Coenen.
The Spartans then got just five hits in the second game, and Boise State used an eight-run seventh inning to break the game open.
Jacqueline Zepeda was 2-for-2 at the plate in the second game, while Coenen drove in the only Spartan run in the fifth inning as she reached on a fielder's choice to score pinch runner Lauren Shanks.
