Softball Spoilers

Wyoming softball finished the regular season with a non-conference game against Princeton, and their final conference game against the CHL winner, Reading.  At Princeton, Wyoming took an 8-0 lead into the bottom of the seventh, and walked away with an 8-6 victory.

The Cowboys saved their best game for last.  They played the season finale against the CHL undefeated leader, Reading on their Senior night.  However, it was our Wyoming seniors that shined.  Senior lead-off hitter Allison Golden had 2 hits, scored 2 runs, and had 2 RBIs in the first two innings.  That was more than enough for senior Madeline Juergens, who faced only six more batters than the minimum (for the whole game!); and after the first inning, didn’t face more than four batters in any one frame.  In fact, the high powered Reading offense managed just one hit and two walks from the second inning on.

Junior Reagan Raymer hit a milestone with her 100th career hit for Wyoming (she was 2 for 4 at the plate with 2 triples and an RBI).    Skyler Wolski was cleared from a possible concussion, and did a wonderful job behind the plate.  After falling behind 2-1 in the first, the second inning proved decisive.  Madeline singled and scored the tying run on a hard it ball by Emma Jacquemin; Shelby Fritz (reached on an error) and Michaela Fetter singled and then scored on a single by Ally.  With 2 outs, Sammi Campbell completed the scoring for the Cowboys with a single that scored Golden and Reilly Boss.  The Reading pitcher then faced only four batters above the minimum from the third inning on.  This was a great pitcher’s duel with excellent play in the field. The defense was spot on.  Boss and Shelby Fritz each had two of the last six outs; and each had to make running catches in the outfield.  Raymer had a 5-5-3 double play to end the first inning, and Ally caught two and had three assists at shortstop.  On one of those grounders, she held a runner at third while making the play to first.  That runner never did score, and the 6-2 lead held for the rest of the game.

Next up for the Cowboys is the post-season tournament; the 7th seeded Cowboys have to travel to Blanchester, the #6 seed on Tuesday.
