SOFTBALL: No. 4 RSU sweeps Bryan College


DAYTON, Tenn. — Laura Fleck faced the minimum in the sixth to secure the short-game win. The sophomore from Muskogee, Okla. registered the complete game win in the circle, allowing two runs on three hits with four strikeouts.


The Hillcats had to register a come-from-behind victory in the finale as the Lions dented the scoreboard first in game two.

Jill Davis opened the second inning with a walk and advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt by Heather Daniel. She reached third on a single by Taylor Yates and scored on a ground out by Kamron Adkins.

After two scoreless innings, RSU posted a seven run fifth frame to take the lead. RSU tallied seven hits in the inning. Threet tallied a RBI single down the left field line, Curtis slapped a two RBI single up the middle, Desiree Ayarzagoitia smashed a two RBI doubled to deep left-center field, Keck hit a RBI single to right-center field while Fauchier rounded out the scoring with a double to shallow right field.

The Lions chipped away at the deficit in the bottom of the inning with a two RBI double off the wall in right- center field fence by Davis.

RSU added one run in each of the last two innings to take a 9-3 lead going into the bottom of the seventh. Curtis came in to pitch for RSU and stuck out the first batter before she ran into some trouble. Christine Davis doubled and scored on a single by Kirby. Jill Davis belted a RBI double to deep left-center field, forcing the Hillcat to bring Fleck back into the game. The Southpaw closed out the inning and secured the RSU win.

Fleck registered the win and the save, allowing three runs on 10 hits with three strikeouts in 6.2 innings of work.

    When Claremore’s Matt Whatley takes his place behind the plate tonight in the Oklahoma Coaches Association Large School East-West All-State baseball game, the former Zebra catcher will be right at home.
    Whatley, who started four years as the catcher for the Zebras, finds his final high school baseball game taking place in his future college ballpark.
    Last November, Whatley and his long-time friend, Bryce Howe, signed NCAA Division I baseball scholarships to play for the Oral Roberts University Golden Eagles.
    Tonight, those dreams come true for Whatley and Jenks outfielder Cadon Owens, who will be joining his former Bearcats teammate on the East squad. Also, Verdigris' Ryan Skalnik will start at third base for the Large East All-State team.
