Softball Eagles Clinch Share of AMC Title


The Williams Baptist College softball team has claimed a share of the American Midwest Conference championship.  The Lady Eagles swept a conference doubleheader from Stephens on Saturday, while conference leader McKendree was losing to Park.  The result is that Williams can do no worse than a tie for the conference crown.

WBC claimed two shutouts over Stephens, winning the first game 5-0 and the second 2-0.  Freshman ace Karisa Hendrix pitched both games in their entirety, allowing only one hit over the 14 innings and notching a no-hitter in the second contest.  She struck out 12 in game one and got four more strikeouts in game two. 

Hendrix is now 6-0 this week, and all were complete game shutouts.  All six were also conference games.

Offensively, Marissa Hoehn went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI in game one.  Mallarie Lee was 1-for-3 with a triple.

In game two, it was Hoehn going 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI.  Kim Emmons was 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI. 

The conference title is the first for Williams in softball.
