MARQUETTE, Mich. - Riley Fisher led the way at the plate and in the circle, going 4-for-5 with her bat while earning a win and a save with her arm as the Simpson softball team beat Concordia (Wis.) and Wis.-Superior on the final day of the 2016 Finlandia Dome Tournament at Northern Michigan University's Superior Dome.

Fisher drove in two runs and earned the save in Simpson's 6-5 win over Concordia in the opener. She homered and doubled in the nightcap, going the distance in an 8-0, 5-inning win over Superior.

The Storm (5-2) are off until the Rebel Spring Games get underway on March 4 in Winter Haven, Fla.
