Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) softball St. Gregory’s University

Before the doubleheader, SAGU honored Ashley Nop , Ashlyn Stanfil and Hannah Lee for their years of service to the SAGU softball program.  Head coach Sarah Harman believes this group of seniors will hold a special place in SAGU history, “Senior day is always bittersweet.  Every athlete that comes into our program is special but these three leave a lot of maturity, leadership and self-motivation and that is a trait you can’t teach.”

Game One (L 9-4)

It was an exceptionally windy day at the ball park and SGU was able to use that to their advantage.  Heading into the bottom of the third, SGU was in the lead 5-0.  With two outs, SAGU was able to rally and get three on base, but they couldn’t capitalize and turn it into any runs.

In the bottom of the sixth, Kristin Stringer doubled down the left field line, scoring Destinee Vindiola and Kayla Milstead .  On Rieanha Cano ’s single to short, Stringer was able to score the third run.

The Lady Lions final run came in the bottom of the seventh after Kirstin Stringer once again came up with a big hit, singling through a hole at short stop, scoring Baylee McBrannon .  SAGU stranded one on base.

SAGU’s Rachel Ray pitched five and two/thirds inning.  She allowed 12 hits and had six strike-outs. Adrianna Barnes came in relief for the final one and one/thirds inning.

Stringer went two for four at the plate.  She had one double with three RBI’s and one run scored. Cheyenne Fults also went two for four with one double.

Game Two (L 35-3)

Game two started out in SAGU’s favor.  They kept the Lady Cavaliers scoreless in the first inning and then scored two runs off of three hits in the bottom of the first.

After that, not much went the Lady Lions way.  The only other bright spot came in the bottom of the third when Kristin Stringer hit a homerun over the left field fence on a 0-0 count.

SGU outhit SAGU 27-6.  SAGU committed 11 errors.

The Lady Lions will host Bacone College on Monday, May 1, 2017.  The doubleheader will begin at 2pm.
