— WC opens national tourney with 8-0 win

Staff Report

It was a dominant debut for WC on Wednesday. In their first-ever national tournament game, the Coyotes beat Walters State (Tenn.), 8-0, at the Canyons Complex in St. George, Utah. Pitcher Kylee Studioso was dominant in the circle, striking out a dozen batters while allowing just two hits over seven shutout innings. Aiding her own cause, the sophomore also hit a home run in the sixth frame.

Weatherford hit a total of four home runs in the game, with Katy Vandewater, Samantha Alegria and Kortney Koroll joining Studioso with round-trippers.

Salt Lake Community College got their bats working against WC on Thursday, scoring in each frame of a 5-inning contest, handing the Coyotes a 10-2 loss.

The loss sent WC to the Thursday evening elimination bracket, where they met Sante Fe College. The Weatherford women chased the starting Santa Fe pitcher early in the ball game, and were leading 6-1 with no outs in the third frame, at press time.

With a win over Santa Fe, WC would meet the winner of the Paris-Lake Land game on Friday, set for a 2:30 p.m. start.

Weatherford-ex leads UL/L circle staff into postseason tourney

Staff Report

In her sophomore year, former Weatherford High School softball star Jordan Wallace has established herself as the driving force of the University of Louisiana-Lafayette pitching staff. The Rajin’ Cajuns, as they have all-year long, will depend heavily on Wallace’s performance in the circle to guide their fortunes as they prepare to enter the NCAA regionals this weekend.

UL/L will join LSU, Northwestern State and Central Connecticut State in the regional tourney to be held in the Rajin’ Cajuns back yard — Baton Rouge. 

The Cajuns are 43-13 overall on the season, with Wallace accounting for 28 of those wins on record. Jordan, by far, has carried the lion’s share of the pitching load in the 2013 season, account for more than 214 of the 355 innings the team has played.

Wallace has struck out 331 batters (averaging more than 1.5 per inning) and currently sports an earned-run average of 1.89 while holding opponents to a .170 batting average.

UL/L enters the regional tourney as an at-large bid, as does LSU, who is currently ranked No. 9 in the country. The Cajuns will begin tourney play on Friday, facing off against Northwestern State in a 3 p.m. game.
