SOFTBALL: No. 4 RSU sweeps Bryan College

DAYTON, Tenn. — The No. 4 ranked Rogers State softball team pushed its win streak to 29 games on Wednesday afternoon with a doubleheader sweep over Bryan College (Tenn.) at Lion Field.

Junior Candace Monigold opened game one with a two-run home run in the first frame as RSU belted 12 hits en route to a 10-2 run-rule victory in six innings. In the nightcap, RSU fell behind 1-0 in the second frame but tallied seven runs in the fifth and earned a 9-6 win.


Cailin Simpson tallied a one out single through the left side of the infield to start the inning. Monigold followed and crushed a two-run home run over the right field fence to give RSU the lead. The Lions answered in the bottom of the first with a pair of runs to tie the game with a two RBI triple off the right field wall by Rachel Kirby.

In the top of the second, Ashlie Fauchier led off with a bunt single and advanced to second on an error. Jamie King drove her in with a RBI single to give the Hillcats a 3-2 lead.

The Hillcats gave themselves some breathing room in the fifth as they tallied five runs. Monigold led off the inning with a triple and Taran Threet drew a walk to put runners on the corners. Shona Guerrero followed with a RBI single to shallow centerfield. Shelby Brogdon registered  a walk to load the bases for Linsey Curtis who hit a fielder’s choice to score a run. Fauchier ripped a RBI double down the left field line and King rounded out the scoring with a two RBI single through the right side of the infield, giving RSU an 8-2 advantage.

The Hillcats added two runs in the sixth with a RBI double by Guerrero and a RBI groundout by Threet.
