WC women win big, small over Vernon

Staff Report

The Lady Coyotes softball team collected a pair of W’s at Vernon College on Wednesday, showing off hitting in the opening win, 9-0, and defensive prowess in the second game of the non-conference double header to win, 1-0.

WC’s Kylee Studioso pitched a 1-hit shutout in the opener, while the Lady Coyotes bats produced nine hits, and as many runs. WC scored three runs in the first inning, and closed out the 5-inning match with a handful of runs in the fifth. Catcher Kortney Koroll put together a 4-hit performance, scoring twice in the match. Shortstop Katy Vandewater was 2-for-2 at the plate, crossing the plate three times. Studioso fanned seven Vernon batters while ceding just a single walk.

WC’s Luci Ponce scored on an error in the top of the fourth inning in the second game. The unearned run would be all the Lady Coyotes would require, as Bailee Wortham notched a complete-game shutout, spreading four hits among the Vernon batters, while striking out a handful. The Vernon pitcher was effective, as well, limiting WC batters to three hits.

With a stellar start to their season, the WC women improve to 18-1 (16 consecutive wins) and will host Howard College, the only team to blemish the WC record, on Friday. On Wednesday, Weatherford College will open NTJCAC play with a double header, hosting Cisco Junior College, at 1 p.m.
