A sour end to the season shouldn’t overshadow Anchorage’s Morgan Hill sweet showing at the plate for the University of Missouri St. Louis at the NCAA D2 Midwest Regional.

Despite winning Game 1, the visiting Tritons dropped the next two games to lose the series to Illinois Springfield and end their season with a 35-24 record.

Hill, of East High fame, posted a .400 on-base percentage in the series and drove in her team’s lone run in the final game, a 4-1 loss. The sophomore left fielder collected three hits in all, including two hits in Game 2.

Missouri St. Louis was 8-2 this year when the Alaskan had an RBI.

Earlier this season, she had a 5-for-5 game, including her second career home run, and knocked in five 5 RBIs.

Hill has started 75 of 78 career games and her career batting average is .272. She’s also a two-time Great Lakes Valley Conference All-Academic selection.
