SOFTBALL: Lady 'Cats off to best start in school history

CLAREMORE — Rogers State completed the season sweep of the USAO Drovers with a doubleheader sweep Thursday afternoon at the Diamond Sports Complex.

In the first game the Hillcats applied a run-rule 10-0 victory in five innings to the Drovers and followed with an 8-3 come from behind victory in the nightcap.

The 15-0 start is the best in program history and marks the longest winning streak in RSU Softball’s eight years of existence.

GAME ONE

RSU burst out of the starting gates in the first game of the afternoon with a four run bottom of the first. A leadoff single by Jamie King followed by a Cailin Simpson double, put runners in scoring position as Candace Monigold came to the plate with no outs. The Hillcat centerfielder singled to right field scoring King from third. A double by Katrina Loy to the left-center field gap scored Simpson and Monigold pushing the lead out to 3-0. Katie Ellington eventually scored on a throwing error by the Drovers left fielder as RSU took a 4-0 advantage.

The scoring didn’t stop in the bottom of the second as Simpson doubled with two runners on base to score Toni Shurtliff after her leadoff walk. Two batters later Monigold’s sacrifice fly to left scored Ashlie Fauchier from third building a 6-0 lead.

In the third it was much of the same as Taran Threet’s RBI ground out scored Shona Guerrero. Desireé Ayarzagoitia scored just before a throw home as Toni Shurtliff reached on the fielder’s choice. Shurtliff scored three batters later on a double by Simpson as the Hillcats held a 9-0 lead.

The final run for the Hillcats came in the fourth after a single by Loy led off the bottom half of the inning. Jackie Flores pinch ran for Loy, the senior from Claremore, Okla. Flores moved to second on a pass ball before an error by the Drovers second baseman on Threet’s batted ball put RSU up 10-0.
