Bright’s 2-run HR powers Claremore past Coweta, 7-0

CLAREMORE — Claremore senior center fielder Madison Bright smashed a two-run homer in the bottom of the sixth inning to power the Lady Zebras past Coweta, 7-0 in Metro Lakes Conference action.

With the win, the Lady Zebras improved to 8-0 overall and 4-0 in conference. The Lady Zebras also extended their shutout streak to four straight games.

“Another big win for this team,” Lady Zebra head coach Jim Sherl said. “To get four shut outs in a row against the strong competition that we’ve faced is pretty impressive.”

Claremore’s shutout streak started a week ago with its 2-0 win over Skiatook. Then, the Lady Zebras capitalized with a pair of victories over Meeker and Washington in the Rogers State University Festival.

The key to those victories, according to Sherl, has been the Lady Zebras defense in crucial situations as well as their timely hitting.

“I don’t know if it’s this year’s senior leadership and having a senior-laden defense, but we’ve been able to get out of innings with the bases loaded which is always a huge momentum builder in the game,” Sherl said.

Claremore got out of a bases-loaded jam Monday night in the top of the first inning and then managed to take a 1-0 lead on Stephanie Schivally’s RBI-single that plated Bright.

“We know if we can get Madison (Bright) on base, she’s going to score,” Sherl said. “When you have a senior, senior, senior in the next three spots of the lineup, you feel pretty good about your chances.”

Claremore applied more pressure in the bottom of the third with three runs on two hits to go up 4-0. Krista Wolfe’s two-run error on the bunt, and Schivally’s RBI-single provided the spark in the inning.

Sarah Brown drove in a run in the fifth to push the lead to 5-0 and Bright added a two-run homer in the sixth as Claremore stayed perfect in Class 5A.
