Oneonta High graduate Erin Wolstenholme homered in back-to-back softball games Saturday, leading host Cortland State to a SUNY Athletic Conference sweep of Oneonta State.

Cortland hit five homers during the doubleheader, winning the first game in five innings, 12-0, and the second in six innings, 9-1. Both games ended via the eight-run rule.

Cortland (16-12, 9-3) scored six runs in the first inning and six more in the third during the opening game. Wolstenholme's three-run homer capped the scoring in the first inning.

Wolstenholme also hit a two-run double in the third. She finished 2-for-3 with five RBIs and two runs.

Stephanie Gaska and Jamie Whittam doubled for O-State (8-22, 4-12), which took a 1-0 lead in the second inning of the second game.

Whittam led off with another double, then moved to third on a bunt by Kalyn Deso. Stephanie Gaska then singled in Whittam for the early lead.

Cortland answered with four runs in the bottom frame, which included an RBI single by Wolstenholme.
