WAXAHACHIE, Texas  -- 
Conditions were bright and windy for Tuesday’s softball doubleheader between Southwestern Assemblies of God University and No. 9 ranked Oklahoma City University. But the only team to shine was the Stars (34-8 / 17-5 in SAC), who rolled to 11-0 and 15-1 victories at SAGU’s campus ballfield.

 

 

Effective pitching by Lady Lions freshman Hannah Lee (Hardinsburg, Ky / Breckinridge HS) limited OKCU from taking advantage of 22 mph winds that were blowing out. The right-hander kept the ball down, thwarting the Stars from powering shots into the windstream.

They did manage one home run in each game, both barely cleared the fence. She went the distance in the two games and allowed only two walks and struck out five batters.

What OKC may have lacked in longball productivity they made up for in methodical play.

They had 14 hits in the first game and 19 in the second. They committed just one error during the twinbill. Four different pitchers combined to hold SAGU to six hits and two walks while striking out 12 on Tuesday.

Six different players collected one hit apiece, three in each game.

During Game One it was Kelsey Coburn (Lewisville, Tx / Lewisville HS), Heather Wyatt (Lake Jackson, Tx / Brazoswood HS) and Lee recording singles. Coburn had three assists from third base while Wyatt was credited with six putouts, one of them on a tag at the plate.

The catcher also gunned down two base runners in the second game.

After yielding two runs in the top of the first inning in Game Two, SAGU bounced back with a score in their half of the frame. And it could have been two.

Freshman Amber Gignac (Houston, Tx / Homeschool), who had three putouts during the contest, led off with an infield single. It was hit into the hole between shortstop and third base. She legged it out with a quick dash to first, then moved to second on a wild pitch.

Bethany Krock (San Antonio, Tx / Cornerstone Christian) followed with a looping liner to centerfield. Gignac hesitated to make sure the ball wasn’t caught, then darted to third. She was toast at third. Krock alertly advanced to second.

First Baseman Sierra Hankins (Welch, Ok / Welch HS), batting third, ripped an outside pitch down the rightfield line to drive in Krock.

The Stars regrouped and retired the final 15 batters in succession.

Krock was busy in the outfield, making four catches, all on line drives.

SAGU extended a string of games to eight in which they scored one run or less.

Hankins and Krock, who joined the team at the end of the women's basketball season, lead the team in hitting with .345 and .324 batting averages. Coburn is third at .302.

SAGU entertains Lady Drovers in four-game weekend series

The Lady Lions will host a four game series this weekend, all on campus.

University of Science & Arts of Oklahoma (USAO) (23-19 record) will provide the opposition in a 2:00pm doubleheader on Friday and at 11:00am Saturday for another twinbill.

The weather forecast is calling for a sunny sky and temperatures ranging from 79 to 83.
