FORT WORTH – To say the Weatherford College softball team had a good weekend would be an understatement. The Coyotes won all six of their games at the Cowtown Classic, hitting 16 home runs and outscoring their opponents 61 to 15.

WC (7-1) began with a 9-0 win over Western Texas on Friday, and followed that up with 12-3 wins over both Connors State and Odessa.

On Saturday, the Coyotes beat Eastern Oklahoma 9-1, had their biggest test of the weekend with a 9-7 win over Trinity Valley, and dominated Bossier Parish (LA) 10-1.

WC pitcher Bailee Wortham threw a one-hitter against Western Texas, allowing no runs while striking out seven over five innings.

Two Coyotes recorded grand slams:  Samantha Alegria against Connors State and Luci Ponce against Odessa.  Ponce, a sophomore from San Jose, Calif., finished the weekend with three homers.

The Coyotes play at Northeast Texas in Mt. Pleasant Tuesday.  Their home opener will be Wed., Feb. 20 against Paris Junior College at Stuart Field.
