Sweeping the Southwestern Christian Eagles in Oklahoma has moved the Lady Lions into second place of the Sooner Athletic Conference. They are now 9-9 overall for the 2019 season and 4-0 in the SAC after winning game one 5-0 and game two 12-1.

The Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) softball team knew these games would be important for the end of the season seeding for the conference tournament, and they showed that scoring three runs in the first inning. Cheyenne Fults and Kayla Milstead had the two hits in this inning while Janely Cruz, Fults, and Casey Waterman scored to start this game off 3-0. The next inning Rhian Journey singled to left and would later score from a passed ball to a Lady Eagle that would score Journey after she reached second from stealing, new score 4-0 after two. Journey would score again the next inning for the last run of the game from walking then stealing second again and an error from a bobbled ball that Fults hit. Waterman pitched a shutout and a near perfect game after only allowing four hits, zero runs, and striking out four Eagles for her seventh win of the season which is 15th in the country.

The second game started shortly after and the Lady Lions got contributions all across the board while not committing an error. They scored 12 runs, had 11 hits from nine Lady Lions, five stolen bases, two doubles, one triple, and allowed one run. Journey went one for three and stole two bases accounting for two runs, Cruz went one for four for one run, Waterman was one for two with an assist, a double, and one run for SAGU, Milstead was one for two with a run and an assist, Peyton Woodall pinch hit for the Lady Lions that counted for two RBI’s from her triple then later scored, Rosie Guadarrama batted 1.00 after going two for two with an RBI and being one of their 12 runs, Morgan Valentino went one for three that scored two Lady Lions and Airiana Magdaleno did exactly what Valentino did. Waterman started the first four innings giving up one earned run and three hits while striking out four of the 14 batters she faced, Natalie Voss recorded the win in two innings of work allowing zero runs and only two hits.

Central Christian College will come to Waxahachie for a four-game series starting on Friday and finishing the final two games on Sunday, 3/18.
