WC women sweep, men get split in home double headers



Side-by-side double headers provided WC baseball and softball fans a treat with rare Friday night fare. The Lady Coyotes hosted Vernon at Stuart  Field while the Weatherford College baseball team entertained Hill College. Both were North Texas Junior College Athletic Conference (NTJCAC) twin bills, with the start times staggered for fans who wanted to catch a sampling of both events.

And the WC teams very nearly provided a foursome of victories, except for a ninth-inning Hill rally that buried the Coyotes’ hopes in the Friday nightcap. The Weatherford women swept its double header over Vernon, 4-1 and 7-0. In baseball, after beating Hill handily in the first contest, 11-6, WC was ambushed with a 7-run rally by the Highlanders in the final frame, losing 12-5.

Sophomore pitcher Kylee Studioso kept her non-blemished conference record intact in the Lady Coyotes opening game on Friday, serving up a 3-hitter to facilitate the 4-1 win. 

Down a run going into the bottom of the third, WC put together a 1-out rally that began with a Samantha Alegria double to center, followed by Courtney Duplechin’s Texas Leaguer single to right. Luci Ponce singled and Kortney Koroll lifted a sac fly, setting up the big blast of the inning by Katy Vandewater, who hit a 2-run shot over the left field wall.

The four runs would be all WC needed, as there was no more scoring in the game. Studioso went the distance in the circle, recording six strikeouts.

Starting pitcher Bailee Wortham followed suit in the second contest, also pitching a 3-hitter, while adding another  shutout to her record. Wortham gave up just a single walk and worked out of a bases-loaded situation while the game was still in doubt in the middle innings.

The Lady Coyotes’ offense was more lethal, and opportunistic, as the game progressed, taking advantage of four Vernon errors while banging out six hits in the game. Alegria netted a pair of RBIs and scored a run, while leadoff hitter Molly Holliday also had productive plate appearances, hitting safely twice and scored twice.
