FORT MYERS, Fla., - The No.21 FGCU softball team improves to 34-3 as they came from behind in both games of a double header against Upper Iowa, picking up 10-2 and 7-2 wins.

Rachel Edinger (Jr., Lakeland, Fla.) went the distance for the Eagles as she improved her record to 16-0 on the year.
In the night bill, the Eagles once again fell behind, this time 3-0 in the third as the Peacocks scored on three unearned runs. The Eagles answered right back with three runs of their own in the third one of them being on a RBI double by Cheyenne Jenks (So., Naples, Fla.). FGCU then scored two more in the fourth and fifth and the Peacocks got one run back in the fifth for the final score of 7-4.
