SOFTBALL: UCO's Brunson breaks steals record in win over ENMU

SAN ANTONIO — Kaylee Brunson became Central Oklahoma's all-time steals leader and the Bronchos ended the Rattler Invitational with a 4-0 shutout of Eastern New Mexico here Sunday.


Brunson went 1-for-3 at the plate with one run batted in and two runs scored while also swiping two bases.  The junior speedster now has 69 steals for her career, surpassing the record of 68 set by Mary Martin from 1983-86.


Kalynn Schrock and Nicole Brady teamed up for a two-hitter in the pitching circle.  Schrock gave up both hits and struck out one in going the first five innings to earn the win before Brady finished off the shutout with two hitless innings.


"It was good to end the tournament with a win and we were glad to see Kaylee get the record," said interim head coach Cody White, whose team went 3-2 in the three-day tourney.  "Kalynn and Nicole both threw well and we came up with a couple of key hits."


Eight different players had one hit apiece for the Bronchos, who took a 1-0 lead in the first when Brunson drew a lead-off walk, went to second on a groundout and scored on Emily Ditmore's double.


Brunson and Devyn Frazier had run-scoring singles in the second to push the lead to 3-0 and UCO added an unearned run in the fourth to complete the scoring.

Brunson and Schrock were both named to the all-tournament team.


The defending national champion Bronchos, now 9-7 on the season, don't play again until going to Midwestern State for a doubleheader on March 4.
