SOFTBALL: No. 4 RSU splits doubleheader with No. 21 Mobile (Ala.)

MOBILE, Ala. — The No. 4 Rogers State softball team split a doubleheader with No. 21 Mobile (Ala.) on Thursday evening.

The Hillcats pushed its win streak to a program-best 30 victories before falling to the Rams in the nightcap. RSU clipped the Rams 9-7 in extra innings in the opener but gave up the first loss of the season, 9-1, in the six innings.


The Hillcats dented the scoreboard first as they took a 2-0 lead in the top of the fourth. Katie Ellington got things started for the RSU offense as she drew a two-out, full count walk. Desiree Ayarzagoitia followed with a double ripped down the right field line all the way to the wall, allowing Ellington to score. Ayarzagoitia stole third base and Toni Shurtliff followed with a walk to put runners on the corners. Shurtliff stole second during the next at bat and catcher Emily Vickery threw the ball into the outfield trying to catch her stealing, allowing Ayarzagoitia to score.

RSU held the Rams scoreless until the sixth inning as Mobile battled its way back in to the game with a pair of runs on three hits. Alexa Da Rosa and Jordan Coleman each tallied a RBI double to knot the score. Neither team was able to plate the game-winning run in the seventh, sending the game into extra innings.

In the top of the eighth the Hillcats quickly loaded the bases. With one out, Katrina Loy was hit by a pitch to bring the go-ahead run in to score. Ayarzagoitia kept the offense going with a RBI single to shallow centerfield. Shurtliff drew a walk to bring a run in and Ashlie Fauchier followed with a RBI single to shallow left field. Jamie King belted a two RBI double down the left field line and Cailin Simpson rounded out the scoring with a sacrifice fly.

  • DSC_0114web.jpg SOCCER: JV Lady Zebras edge Verdigris, 2-1

    Claremore sophomore forward Brylee Brasher may have felt a little out of position Monday night during the junior varsity game against Verdigris.
    Normally, starting in the goal for the Lady Zebras varsity team, Brasher came out of her comfort zone to start at forward for the Claremore JV.
    The position switch proved to be a great decision for head coach Robin Sutherland, as Brasher showed a tenacity on offense that led to Claremore’s 2-1 win over Verdigris.
