The Iowa State softball team competed in the GCU Purple Classic Tournament this weekend, a tournament with many ups and downs for the Cyclones.

The last game of the GCU Purple Classic Tournament was played against Grand Canyon on Sunday, with the Cyclones winning 13-7.

Iowa State center fielder Lea Nelson gave the Cyclones their first chance to score in the second inning.

She was able to single to center field, advance to second on the throw, sending her teammates Mikayla Ramos and Milaysia Ochoa home.

In the third inning, Sami Williams hit a single up the middle which brought home Carli Spelhaug to add to run scoring.

Ramos was able to give the team their last score of the night in the seventh inning, finishing the game 13-7.

The Cyclones compete next on March 5-7 at the UT-Arlington Boerner Invitational in Arlington, Texas.
