Freshman outfielder continues solid season

SAGU hosts Northwood on Tuesday

gignac-catchFORT WORTH, Texas  --  Southwestern Assemblies of God University freshman Amber Gignac (Houston, Tx) rapped three of the team’s five hits but couldn’t prevent Texas Wesleyan University from taking both ends of a softball doubleheader, 4-0 and 8-0.

The games were originally scheduled for Waxahachie but were moved to Sycamore Park in Fort Worth.

The other two hits were by Heather Wyatt (Lake Jackson, Tx / Brazoswood HS) and Feliciano Maldonado (Victorville, CA / Victor Valley HS). All five of the hits in the two games combined were singles, though the Lady Lions did place five other runners on base via walks.

Gignac raised her batting average to .255, which is fourth best on the team.

SAGU dropped their eleventh consecutive game and have been outscored in the slump, 98 to 16. Overall the team’s won-lost record slipped to 6-24.

They are 1-15 against teams in the Sooner Athletic Conference.

The Lady Rams improved to 12-9 and 5-3 in the SAC.

Wesleyan scored single runs in each of the first three innings en route to a shutout victory. They totaled 10 hits, just one for extra bases, and managed two walks off of SAGU’s Hannah Lee (Hardinsburg, Ky / Breckinridge HS).

Lee is 3-9 but, at 5.07, her earned run average is easily the best on the team. She has walked only eight batters in 68 innings. The freshman has fanned 45.

In the second game the Rams took advantage of three errors and three first inning walks to grab a 3-0 lead. Overall they collected just six hits, though three of them went for extra bases. They also swiped six bases.

Sophomore Blayr Huff (Keller, Tx / Liberty Christian HS) absorbed the loss (1-5).

The shutouts bring the season total to 11 in thirty games.

SAGU returns to the field on Tuesday, March 25, when Northwood University (5-17 / 2-3 in SAC) visits the Lady Lions’ campus park. The doubleheader begins at 2:00pm.

Team Purple has had 22 games on the road. Of the team’s six home games, only a doubleheader on February 13 against Texas College was on campus.

SAGU has 24 games remaining, 16 of them in Waxahachie.
