lee-hannah-at-wscWAXAHACHIE, Texas  --  Forgive the Southwestern Assemblies of God University softball team if they start receiving mail in Oklahoma.

After dropping a doubleheader in Shawnee on Friday at No. 19 ranked St. Gregory’s University, the Lady Lions have four more games in the area on Monday and Tuesday.

SAGU is scheduled for a twinbill in Bethany where they will meet Southwestern Christian University. The action begins at 5:00pm (CST) on Monday evening. The Lady Eagles play their home games at Bethany's First Church of the Nazarene's softball facility.

The Lady Eagles are 7-8 overall. Their league record is 1-4 against the Sooner Athletic Conference. SWCU’s most recent game was a 24-5 loss to Texas Wesleyan University.

However, the Eagles tote a .343 team batting average, which is second in the Sooner. SAGU is last with a .222 BA. SWCU scores an even 6.0 runs per game, fifth best in the SAC, while the Pride is at 3.55.

In terms of pitching, SAGU and SWCU are comparable. The Lady Lions’ 6.63 earned run average (ERA) tops the Eagles’ 8.09.

The following day the Purple Pride will meet No. 3 ranked Oklahoma City University (18-1 / 8-0 in SAC) at 2:00pm.

The Lady Stars, who play at Ann Lacy Stadium, will bring a 14-game winning streak into the doubleheader. Their BA is .336 and they produce 8.3 rpg.

Their M.O., however, is their pitching. Collectively their 0.99 ERA has seen them hold 12 of their 17 opponents to one run or less.

St. Gregory’s took both ends of Friday’s double dip, 8-0 and 13-1.

The Lady Lions were no-hit in the opener by the Stars’ freshman Mollie Carter (3-1 record). She struck out 10 of the 18 batters she faced.

SAGU’s lone baserunners were Lynette Riggs (Leupp, Az / Flagstaff HS) and Amber Belisle (Roseville, Cal / Whitney HS), who were walked.

Hannah Lee (Hardinsburg, Ky / Breckinridge HS) was tagged with the loss. She departed after three innings, have surrendered six runs. Four SAGU errors, two of them in the outfield, led to four unearned runs.

Lee has a 3-6 won-lost record. Currently her 4.75 ERA is the best on the squad.

OKC won the second game, 13-1, by grabbing a 6-0 lead against Brittney Johnson (Tahlequah, Ok / Tahlequah HS). Feliciana Maldonado (Victorville, Cal / Victor Valley HS) entered in the third inning.

She allowed the final seven runs. Three errors, including two more in the outfield, enabled the Stars to score three unearned runs.

SAGU collected four base hits and an unearned run.

Blayr Huff (Keller, TX / Liberty Christian HS) led off the fourth with a grounder to shortstop Melanie Gladden, who misplayed the ball. Heather Wyatt (Lake Jackson, Tx / Brazoswood HS) followed with a single to centerfield to advance Huff to second.

Riggs attempted to bunt the runners into scoring position. Catcher Danielle Bacon fielded the ball but threw wildly allowing Huff to dart home. Wyatt and Riggs moved ahead to third and second, respectively.

SAGU’s chance to get back in the game, with two runners on board and no outs, was snuffed out by senior pitcher Devon Frazier. She struck out three straight Lions; Lee went down swinging, Belisle watching and Maldonado swinging.

The Stars countered with seven runs on seven hits in the bottom of the fourth. A bunt single, a double and a dropped fly started the inning and fueled the rally.

Three other members of Team Lioness rapped hits.

The first came with two outs in the second when Lee poked a single to shallow rightfield. Frazier retired the next batter on strikes.

In the third it was Johnson, whose speed beat-out a smash to the shortstop. A sacrifice bunt moved her to second before Kelsey Coburn (Lewisville, Tx / Lewisville HS) popped out to first base.

Finally, in the fifth it was Coburn. She hammered her fourth double of the season, a gapper between left and center. The ensuing batter went down swinging to end the game.

Lady Lions by the numbers; stat leaders

SAGU, now 6-16 overall and 1-7 in the SAC, is led by three batters.

Johnson, who has settled in at leadoff, is tops with a .391 BA and a team-high 19 runs. Third baseman Coburn is next at .321 while Wyatt, the catcher, swings a .263 stick.

Coburn and Wyatt pace the Pride in runs batted in with 13 and 12 respectively.

The team has combined for four homers; two by Coburn and one apiece from Wyatt and Illiana Jimenez (Crystal City, Tx / Crystal City HS).

SAGU is in the midst of a 12-game road trip. They return for a home doubleheader on Tuesday, March 25, when Northwood University visits on campus.

Twenty-two of the team’s 54-games are scheduled at home.
