OXFORD, Ala. – The University of Montevallo softball team took a hard fought loss to top seeded AUM, 4-1, Thursday at Choccolocco Park.

UM kept the bats hot but could not put in runs to overcome the AUM lead, ending the game with a 4-1 loss.
Mychael McMillan was in the circle for the Falcons, completing six innings of service with six hits, four runs, four walks, a double, and five strikeouts.
