SALINA, KS – The Northeast Community College women’s softball team picked up one win and suffered three losses in a pair of doubleheaders played here Thursday and Friday.
The Hawks were swept by Kansas Wesleyan JV Thursday, losing 7-5 in the first game and 6-1 in the nightcap. On Friday, Northeast dropped their first game against Brown Mackie College 11-6, but prevailed in the second with a 21-5 win.
Hawks Coach Iris Woodhead said that despite 16 total hits in the first game against Kansas Wesleyan, the Hawks also had nine strikeouts. “We were able to get runners on base but that was it. We weren’t able to score them because we weren’t able to have quality at-bats.”
Alyson Romey led the Hawks in the first game, batting 5-for-5 with two runs. Kelsie Myers finished 2-for-3 with a run and a base on ball. Kianna Garza went 3-for-4 with three RBIs.
In the Kansas Wesleyan nightcap, Woodhead said the Hawks competed well until the sixth inning when they lost focus. “The game gets pretty hard any time you give a team more than three outs in an inning, (and) we found that out the hard way today.”
Romey batted 1-for-2, while Paige Schmidt, Amy Rogers, Logan Runge and Kelsie Myers all went 1-for-3. Rogers had the Hawks’ lone RBI.
Woodhead said the Hawks encountered the same issues in their first Friday game against Brown Mackie College. “Any time you give the opposition more than three outs to work with, they will make you pay. We have to learn to keep our focus for all seven innings.”
Garza batted 2-for-3 with two home runs and three RBIs. Schmidt, batting 2-for-4, finished with a home run and two RBIs.
After the three-loss streak, the Hawks saw a comeback in the Brown Mackie nightcap, prevailing 21-5.
“We came out with a lot of energy this game, which was great to see,” said Woodhead. “We hit the ball extremely well, played solid defense and Logan (Runge) pitched very well. It took her two innings to settle, but once she was settled, she shut down Brown Mackie’s hitters.”
Schmidt, Romey and Garza all scored a home run each. Schmidt went 2-for-3 with four runs total, three RBIs, two base on balls and a stolen base. Romey, 3-for-5, added four runs total and three RBIs. Garza, 3-for-4, finished with two runs in all, a double and five RBIs.
Rogers went 4-for-5 with three runs and three RBIs, and Myers finished 2-for-3 with two RBIs.
Now 4-10, the Hawks continue their Kansas road trip on Saturday when they travel to Pratt, Kansas, to face Pratt Community College in a doubleheader. Game times are 1 and 3 p.m.
